SHOAL CREEK CANOE RUN was established in 1997. We rent canoes and kayaks for individuals and groups along the beautiful Shoal Creek in Iron City, Tennessee. Enjoy spectacular scenery while floating along the creek. Bring your cooler and pull over on a sandbar for a picnic. Take a dip in the clear water. Grab a pole and catch some fish such as small- and large-mouth bass, black perch, and catfish (just to name a few). There are a few minor rapids on the upper run, but overall, the creek is Class 1. Rates start at $35 per canoe. So, bring the kids and the pets-it's the perfect outdoor family activity!
We are also a convenience store/deli called Shoal Creek Trading Post. Breakfast & lunch is served every day. We sell gas, snacks, drinks, ice, sunblock, waterproof containers & cameras, oil and various other necessities.
We carry live bait (night crawlers), artificial bait & tackle. We sell hunting/fishing licenses and we are a checking station.
Primitive camping is offered behind our store. Camping is free if you canoe that day with us. Otherwise, it is $5.00 per person 13 and older, free for those 12 and under.
