    Default Kayak take-out access point on the Holston

    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

    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!
