Great spot for a quick/close getaway! We live in Nashville. I considered renting our own RV to drive down, but they have RVs onsite for rent… like an AIR BNB. I saved a ton going this route. Kayaking the river was awesome with my wife & 6 year old. The “short float” took an hour, it was beautiful & relaxing. Will be back for sure!
