Tennessee whitewater, Cumberland River - Clear Fork

Campbell county, Highway 90 bridge to Sandy Beach Cove section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS II-III     3 miles
 
As of August 2009 you're on your own to find the best take out.  The former takeout area is now posted.  There are other options, but I haven't checked them all out. See Americanwhitewater for more information about paddling this section. Says Michael

The Highway 90 bridge to Sandy Beach Cove stretch of Cumberland River - Clear Fork is 3 miles long and it is classified as a class II-III section by American Whitewater. The starting point
    is not too far from La Follette. There are some good hotels near the river, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. This river system is full of great paddling sections, the Highway 90
bridge to Sandy Beach Cove section is just one of them. Great exercise and just hanging out with mother nature have people coming from far and near. Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way in this general area you won't find many other paddling places. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in Tennessee is often tougher than elsewhere, so you'd better keep in mind that rivers here are not as easy as elsewhere.  
The natural beauty of Campbell County and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream beats anything. The beauty of the Cumberland Plateau Mountains is a great plus for this river. This section is quite short so you'll have to walk back to the start over and over. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby.

Briefly about the general area:
Places like Indian Mountain State Park are great to check out, and there are plenty of folks from Jellico here. If you want a pleasant time in the great outdoors just come on up to the Cumberland Plateau Mountains.
