Smooth Rapids offers a unique experience with kayaking, camping, and eating all available in one perfect location. Don’t worry if you are new to kayaking as the Barren Fork River is an excellent place to start! River floating in Tennessee has never been easier. We offer floats that allow beginners and experienced kayakers to have a great day on the river! We use high-quality equipment to ensure your safety and we have a wide variety of options to choose from. We also boast of one of the best campgrounds in Middle Tennessee and our McMinnville RV park and tents are right next to our restaurant facilities. You also get access to other attractions such as a stage for live music acts, kayaking, and a kids playground making for a very family-friendly atmosphere.
Weekend trip, great stay with my family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids under 8). Very clean & I felt safe letting my kids run around to play. Extra bonus was the playground right behind our camper. Can’t beat the convenience of being close to the kayaking & restaurant. Great value & we plan to return!
First time kayaking and I love it! 4 hours floating down the river relaxing with my fam and I’m wondering why I didn’t do this sooner. The staff is friendly and helpful, they made a great experience even better. Sitting in the restaurant upstairs, excited about eating after working up an appetite doing nothing all morning. The menu looks great, atmosphere is cool with quirky decorations. We will definitely be coming back.
Smooth Rapids was formed in 2012 out of a love for Warren County and lazy river floats. We’re still going strong and we offer camping and food services all year round. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will be ready to receive you with open arms whether your visit is for kayaking, camping, or eating – or perhaps, all three!
