Buffalo Canoeing of Hohenwald, TN
We also are now offering a limited number of Sit-on-top Kayaks. Please reserve these when making your reservation as these will be very popular.
Buffalo Canoeing is located between Hohenwald, Tn and Waynesboro, Tn on TN-99, 2 hours south of Nashville, TN and 3 hours east of Memphis, TN. Our campground is located at the end of a hidden valley, bordered on one side by the beautiful Buffalo River, and along the other side flows a quiet stream, that children love to play in. Each campsite is on the river, in shade with tables, charcoal grills and firepits in each. We have facilities for groups from 2 to 200 people, along with a private campground for churches, Boy Scouts, and large family groups. We have a bathhouse with restrooms and hot showers, a small camp store with snacks, drinks, bottled water and ice. There is firewood for sale if you need any. Bring back as much as you take with you... cans, bottles, paper. But please don't litter our river, pack out what you pack in. We support and practice Leave No Trace wilderness ethics, and strongly urge you to also. For more information click here LNT.
We do not allow any children under the age of 5 in our canoes. Young children often panic when tipped over so please think of your child's safety whenever you bring young children.
In keeping with our family atmosphere we ask that there is no alcohol on our main campground.
We are now asking all minors who rent from us have a liability waiver filled out by their parent or guardian prior to canoeing with us. You can download the release form here

Our river is considered a Class I and II. Class I is smooth flat water with little or no current or rapids. Class II is the current we have in most places. You will have. There are several types of water on the river. There is some dead water, places where there isn't any current and you will have to paddle through these pools. The river often narrows down and picks up speed and you will have a lot of current in these places. Occasionally the river runs over rocks producing small riffles, but no true white water.
We have had a few problems with online mapping software. They sometimes send you in a very strange direction. please use them as a reference only, our online directions on the Directions page are much more accurate. Thanks.
At this time we are unable to accept credit cards. However we gladly accept checks and cash.
