Route 1384 to Route 1338 section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.
CLASS II-III 8.8 miles
The scenic beauty of North Carolina and the water flowing gracefully down Jonathans Creek beats anything. If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside this state you might find the rivers here a bit more forgiving, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that many of the rivers in this state are not very demanding. The beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains scenery is an added bonus. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. On this
section you do get some distance, it's perfect for a one day trip. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem but if you donít have reservations you might end up
sleeping in your car. This stretch of Jonathans Creek in Haywood County is 8.8 miles long and has been rated as a class II-III section by American Whitewater. There are no other sections to paddle along Jonathans Creek than the Route 1384 to Route 1338 section. A bit of exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors are great reasons to come.
