There’s Nothing Better Than This Natural Lazy River Near Nashville On A Summer’s Day
Care to spend a day on the Harpeth? There’s nothing more relaxing than a fun afternoon on the river, and if you’re not the biggest fan of rafting and water sports, then you may just want to hang out on the lazy side of our prominent middle Tennessee river. Check out how you can spend your summer with Foggy Bottom Canoeing – the type of place you frequent again and again.
Founded in 1987, Foggy Bottom has been providing canoe and kayak rentals on the Harpeth River for 30 years. It's easy to see why locals and tourists alike continue to use Foggy Bottom.
Foggy Bottom Canoeing is located just half an hour outside of Nashville in Kingston Springs and features trips down the historic Harpeth River.
The Harpeth is very mild, making it the perfect river to float down. Though there are some small, class I rapids, the river is absolutely perfect for canoes, kayaks, and even tubes.
Foggy Bottom provides canoes, kayaks, vests, and paddles -- all you have to do is show up! They'll drop you off at the drop in point and they'll be there to pick you up at the pre-selected pick-up point.
Canoe prices run from $34-$39 per canoe depending on how far down the river you want to paddle. Kayaks are $29 per kayak no matter how far you go!
Usually 2 people to a canoe is recommended, but three adults can ride as long as you don't mind being cramped and as long as water levels aren't low.
Trips aren't guided, but the shuttle picks up canoers at the specified pick up points every half hour. So, you're more than welcome to go as fast or slow as you want down the river. Foggy bottom is open seasonally from March through October. They open at 9 am on weekdays and 8 am on weekends. The last trips leave at 1pm for the longer trips and 3 pm for the shorter ones.
You can visit for yourself at 1270 Highway 70 in Kingston Springs, Tennessee. Have the greatest time!
