Grimes Canoe Base

767 Boy Scout Rd, Flatwoods, TN 37096

 

The season seemed lost when COVID-19 hit America, but as Gov. Lee relaxed some of the restrictions set in place because of the Coronavirus, the Grimes Campground and Canoe Rental business was able to reopen with safety measures in place.  The fact canoes only hold 2 people, and kayaks hold one, and that canoeing is done in the great outdoors, Grimes was able to continue to support the Boy Scouts of America.  

Morning mist on the Buffalo RiverThe boats are sterilized after every use, masks are required, and hand sanitizer is provided at the Base.  Groups have been limited in size as well.  

With access to over 110 miles of water, Grimes Canoe Base allows Scouts over the age of eight to canoe and camp along the Buffalo River. Located on Highway 13 in Perry County near the town of Flatwoods, Grimes offers campsites with two-person tents including cots. Showers and bathrooms are also available, along with a Trading Post for snacks, T-shirts, and patches.  

Grimes is open yearly from April 1 through November 1. Nearly 300 Scouts, leaders and family members can be accommodated on the river each day.
