Savannah, TN?

Savannah, TN has just been added to my sales territory and so far I’ve only made one brief trip to the area. I know the Tennessee River winds through the west side of town and Pickwick Lake isn’t far to the south. My maps show a number of smaller creeks and tributaries around the area and, of course, the Shiloh military park and Pickwick Dam rec facilities. Does anyone have any first hand knowledge of the waters in the area? Any suggested put-ins or interesting out of the way spots?

Haven’t paddled west TN. Maybe the
Memphis folks could help. There used to be a rather grandiose 2-volume TN river guidebook called “Streams of Tennessee” by Sehlinger and Lantz, but Menasha Ridge Press no longer has it in print. Probably Volume 2 covers the more western rivers, but I only own volume 1. carries a more modest guidebook for TN flatwater rivers, but they did not provide a table of contents. Hope I remember their website correctly, but you can google Tennessee canoeing guidebooks and find it.

I’ll follow up on your notes…
