Outdoor Adventure Addicts

We are a "lets get in the outdoors and have fun" type of group. We plan many events for all skill levels including Hiking, Mountain Biking, Backpacking, Rock Climbing, Kayaking, Fishing, Caving, White Water Rafting, Camping, etc. We also plan events where our members get together and go grab a cold one. We are a laid back group and we are doing this because we like to have fun and meet new friends. If this sounds interesting to you, then come and join us and hang on for the ride! cause we are a wild bunch. Unlike most other groups we don't have a bunch of silly rules. We simply ask that you come with a great attitude and be ready to have some serious fun and enjoy the great outdoors.

Knoxville on the Water and More

This group is about being on the water. This club is a collection of individuals who share a common interest in paddling, watercraft on the rivers, and lakes. The purpose of the club is to provide a framework in which individuals have the opportunity to meet other paddlers and sailors, share experiences, gain knowledge, organize trips, and cooperatively support causes that result in river preservation, restoration, access and general conservation issues. We have experienced and non-experienced paddlers from the East Tennessee area.

Knoxville Whitewater Boaters

This group is for any and all whitewater kayakers, canoeists, IKs that just want to get together and boat! No charters, officers, or business meetings just people who love to get out on the water! We welcome anyone from beginner to expert to lead or organize a trip. If you want to run a river you don't know, offer to organize the trip and ask someone else to lead it! I started this group for those who are looking for a simple way to meet other whitewater boaters without all the formalities of a "canoe club" As individual boaters, we are all expected to self evaluate and make our own decision about what we feel is safe to run.
