Located in McMinville, which is pretty much directly between Chattanooga and Nashville, the Collins River is a great spot for a relaxing float/paddling trip. There are several places to put-in/take out. Check out this helpful map to get a sense of options: The scenery is gorgeous. It’s a particularly great place to view wildflowers during the spring and summer. The portion of the river that lies within the Savage Gulf State Natural Area is designated as one of Tennessee’s Scenic Rivers.
