Tennessee whitewater, Little Pigeon River - West Prong

Sevier county, Campbell Overlook to 1st bridge in Gatlinsburg section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS II-V     2.6 miles
  The Campbell Overlook to 1st bridge in Gatlinsburg section of Little Pigeon River - West Prong in Tennessee is 2.6 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class II-V section. The natural beauty of Tennessee and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream will make you feel great. Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way around here you'll find a large
    number of good places. This is not the only paddling stretch in this river system, there are others too. If you've been out of state whitewater rafting and kayaking you might find the rivers here more demanding, so if you're
visiting here do keep in mind that the rivers in this state are less manageable. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby. This is a short paddling stretch so you'd better be prepared to walk your kayak back to put-in a few times. If you'll be staying in a hotel you're in luck, lodging is available very near the river, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. The put-in location is a reasonable drive from Sevierville,  
as you can see on the road map further down. Getting your paddling muscles activated and spending some quality time in nature will have you coming back for more. The wild scenery of the Great Smoky Mountains is great.

Briefly about the general area:
Here at Little Pigeon River - West Prong you'll possibly meet some folks from Gatlinburg; splendid skiing awaits you at Ober Gatlinburg. And that's not everything you can do here in the Great Smoky Mountains. Why not take a refreshing hike along the Cove Mountain Trail; a trip to Great Smoky Mountains National Park is recommended.
