Cast a line in the Urban Wilderness!  Ijams River Landing offers non-motorized boat access, this dock offers a spot to access the waters of the Tennessee River.

The water invites paddlers to put-in and explore. Head downstream, and you will also catch a unique perspective of downtown Knoxville. Upstream, more rural and wild, the river extends to its confluence with the French Broad and Holston Rivers.
