Canoeing, Kayak, Camping

Category: Outdoor Sports
Outdoors is the place to be!  Lewis County has lots to offer land and water.  Canoeing, kayaking, horseback riding, camping, just to name a few.  

Kayaking and Canoeing

The Buffalo River, a natural attraction for weekend canoe and kayak enthusiasts, is one of the last rivers classified as "scenic" in the Southeast. Sports fishermen and women will find a variety of fish types including bass, bluegill, perch and more. Canoeing, or "floating the Buffalo," is a perfect way to spend the day in Lewis County.

In 2022, Lewis County’s Buffalo River Blueway offers 2 public access points. The first is located at Metal Ford on the Natchez Trace Parkway. Public access on Natchez Trace Parkway milepost 382.8 at Metal Ford. Take out for this segment is located at the newly updated Grinders Creek Public Access point is 2581 Buffalo Road (at the Mouth of Grinders Creek and the Buffalo River). This segment provides an enjoyable 5- mile floating trip for all ages. Future Public Access points are planned for development on Lewis County’s segment to include Texas Bottom and Riverside, both historic takeout points for full day float trips. Kayaking or canoeing the Buffalo River is a cool way to spend the summer. Contact Debbie Landers at 931-796-4084 for outfitter information or bring your canoe or kayak and put in at any of several points.
