I imagine this has been asked before, so I apologize up front, I am thinking about floating (SOT kayak) the holston below Cherokee dam. What i need is a take out place assuming we splash at the dam landing. Me and my friend are able paddlers and are planning on making a full day of it but if anyone has any thoughts on a viable take out that would be really appreciated! thanks

Check with Hugh. He also provides a shuttle service.

Only public ramps on the Holston river below Cherokke dam is near the Dam and at Nancey Ferry. The rest are private and charge a yearly fee or you need presmisson from land owner.

OK, thanks for the advise guys, I am still in the planning phase of this, I floated it once in a drift boat but I was just along for the trip and not the planning. I will try and get some times together and will seek out Hugh and then Mr JoeFred, thanks again everyone!
