Canoe, Kayak & SUP Races on Fontana Lake

This August, join us for the innaugural Lake Fontana Paddle Grapple. This multi-discipline event offers participants a 3 and 6 mile option, both of which circumnavigate two islands near the Tsali Recreational Area. Enjoy the cool water and views of Great Smoky Mountains National Park as you race SUP, Surfski, marathon, or recreational kayaks and canoes on beautiful Fontana Lake.

Course Map

The race starts and finishes at the Tsali boat launch, and competitors do either one or two laps, depending on which distance they choose to race.
