For Kids

Kids who visit the Obed Wild and Scenic River are in for a treat! Recreational activities for all ages include birding, fishing, hiking, kayaking, picnicking, rock climbing, and stargazing!

Where to start? Every adventure needs a map, so stop by the Visitor Center in Wartburg to pick up a Junior Ranger booklet. Our Junior Ranger program helps kids of all ages learn more about this river ecosystem and eastern Tennessee's cultural history.

Looking for more direction? Our ranger-led programs are a great way to experience this wild place! Check our calendar page for upcoming family friendly programs.

The fun doesn't have to stop once you leave the park! We have more engaging online activities that help you to explore our national parks!
