  If you're coming from Sevierville it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you won’t get lost. If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside this state you might find the rivers here a bit more challenging, so if you're not from around here don't forget that many of the sections here are not safe for beginners.

    but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. A bit of exercise and just hanging out with mother nature will have you coming back for more. This
