Destination Points

Below are the Destination Points we service on The Caney Fork River. Please be aware that as the river changes, the water may be higher or lower than depicted in these images. The images are for reference only.

 

Happy Hollow Access – 6 miles

Happy Hollow is our first stop on the Caney Fork. This trip will take you 6 miles downriver from Center Hill Dam.

It should take approximately 1 1/2 hours to 3 hours depending on how quickly you paddle and the water flow.

This is a great stretch of the river for beautiful scenery, trout fishing, and casual floating.

 

 

 Betty’s Island Access – 9 miles

Betty’s Island is our most popular trip. This trip will take you 9 miles downriver from Center Hill Dam.

It should take approximately 3 to 5 hours depending on how quickly you paddle and the water flow.

On this section of the river, in additional to all that you see on the 6 mile- you will also be treated to an old 1800’s train bridge, a nest of bald eagles, and a large cave that many of the more daring explore! You will also go under 3 sets of interstate bridges so for everyone driving over the river coming to and from Nashville, this is your chance to paddle under it!
