Public Boating Access

Due to recent rain events in Region 1, mud and debris may be present on the ramps. Please use caution when launching and retrieving. Boating access points on rivers in Region 3 (New, Clinch and Holston Rivers) are covered in mud and silt from the recent high water event. As the river levels return to normal we are clearing these access points. It will take several days to inspect and clean all the ramps. Thank you for your patience.
