This section of Mud Lick Creek in Morgan County is 1 miles long and has been rated as a class III+ section by American Whitewater. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. The river winds through the Cumberland Plateau Mountains and you get great scenery. Great exercise and spending some quality time in nature
have a lot of people coming here. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. Mud Lick Creek doesn't have a lot of paddling stretches, the culvert to Emory River stretch is the only one. This is an extremely
short section so you'll have to walk back to the start over and over. The average Tennessee whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit harder to master than those in other states, so if you're not from around here don't forget that rivers here are less forgiving. The nature scenery of Morgan County and the water flowing gracefully down Mud Lick Creek are reasons enough to come here and paddle.
