Looking for a very scenic KAYAK river trip.

Hi there! My family and I are looking for another place to go kayaking. We have done a lake and a couple rivers. We have 2 sons ages 8 an 10 who are very strong and able to maneuver kayak fairly well. My husband and I take our canoe. We love to go on rivers so that the kids can get out and play in the water at times and kind of go with the flow a little bit as well. Looking for great scenic rivers around Kentucky or Indiana. Thanks so much for any inspirations for our future trips from your experiences! Nothing dangerous for the kids even though they're strong, I don't want any drop offs or exxxtreme rocky white water rushes! :) Maybe a little bit. I can't be too much of a kill joy. :D

Contact Sheltowee Trace Outfitters near Cumberland Falls. They service the Big South Fork area as well as others. They can advise.

There are also some around Falmouth.

Elkhorn Creek around Lexington is another possibility. Ky. DNR has a list of creeks that would work - enter "Ky. Creeks".

You might want to access Kentucky Department of Fish & Wildlife via this link - will give you any and every creek in the state: https://fw.ky.gov/Fish/Pages/default.aspx

Have you checked the places mentioned on the Kentucky Tourism page yet? I have heard Big Buffalo Crossing Canoe and Kayak is nice (Munfordville, KY). kentuckytourism.com/outdoor-adventure/water-…
