Kayak Seven Island Wildlife Refuge

Kodak, Tennessee

based on 1 reviews


Added by Katie Cate

This small new park offers easy-to-paddle water for casual and beginner kayakers. 

Begin your trip by putting your kayak in the water at Kelly Lane. The parking area is large and grassy. The trip is 4 miles and takes about two hours. On your journey you will have views of flower fields and rock walls.

Once you get to the island paddle around and see the wildlife. There is a second boat launch at your turnaround point. Simply paddle back upstream. The current is smooth and offers very little resistance.
