Nashville’s Most Popular Boating Experiences

Here are some options for activities that you won’t want to miss on your next Nashville boat rental adventure.

Elm Hill
Boating, fishing, and water sports are among the most popular activities in the area. Elm Hill Marina is the marina closest to downtown Nashville, which means it is one of the busiest. Many locals rent slips and have their boats docked here, and you can easily do the same. Elm Hill also has a general store with essentials like sunscreen and floating keyrings and a pretty good restaurant.

J. Percy Priest Lake
The 14,200 acres of J. Percy Priest Lake can be a favorite destination for boating, swimming, paddling, fishing, and picnicking. Access is provided through more than a dozen different parks and access areas on every side of the lake. The lake’s visitors center is at the dam site that created the lake, where you will find a lake overlook and one of four marinas on the lake.

Old Hickory Lake
One of two lakes formed by the Cumberland River’s damming, Old Hickory Lake has eight marinas, an arboretum, and more than 40 places to launch your Nashville boat rental and get out on the water. There are beaches, picnic areas, and sailboat marinas, as well as two campgrounds.

Nashville’s Best Bodies of Water

Cumberland River

Nashville, Tennessee, is built on the Cumberland River. There is a nice riverfront area with lots of courtesy docks for your Nashville boat rental. There are plenty of restaurants near the landings, and it is easy to walk into the heart of downtown. The river is quite narrow through Nashville, so when towboats are present, it is best to allow them plenty of room.

Harpeth River

Using a canoe or kayak on the Harpeth River on the west side of town can be a memorable experience. The Harpeth is typically a Class I river, but some times it becomes a Class II due to heavy rainfall. If you have any concerns about your paddling ability, be sure to call ahead to check the river conditions before setting out.

Cherokee Steak House

Take your Nashville boat rental to the Cherokee Steak House. Cruise by Reba McEntire’s home about 30 miles east of Nashville on the Cumberland River. You will also drift past the homes of stars like Barbara Mandrell, Tanya Tucker, Crystal Gayle, Ashley Judd, and Johnny Depp.
