Registration Deadline:  Thursday, July 12, 2018

Stand up paddle board on the Tennessee’s iconic Mountain Lake!

The mountains rise up from the water’s edge, soaring above you. See this scenic landscape from a new perspective.

“This was a great learning experience–totally from first time beginner to actually being able to stand up on the paddle board and paddle up river a ways with the group–I had wanted to try SUP for several summers but had not done so due to being a bit nervous to try it by myself. With the group and great instruction, it was so very “doable”

Panther Creek State Park’s Cherokee Lake gives you novel perspective to see the forest in the summertime. From on the water, nothing obstructs your view of the green leaves of the oaks, maples, and elm trees. The still water reflects the hills, as the light wind blows ripples across the lake surface.

The mountains around the lake rise up steeply, lush and green, and what better way to take it in than by gliding across Cherokee Lake on a stand up paddleboard.

The day starts by going over basic strokes used to control your board. Then we set off with lunch “on board” to explore the numerous rocky islands of Lake Cherokee.

Once you’re comfortable on your board, your expert instructor teaches different stances so that you can paddle with comfort regardless of the conditions.

This trip is for you if you:
Want to try stand up paddleboarding.
Have paddleboarded before and want to do again (and learn new techniques).
Are looking to meet new friends who like to be outside around the water
You are looking for a reason to get out on the river.

This trip is not for you if you:
Are uncomfortable around or in water.
Do not want to get wet.
Cannot be in the sunshine and water for prolonged periods of time.
