Tennessee whitewater, White Oak Creek

Morgan Scott county, Burville Road to Burnt Mill Bridge section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS II     21.3 miles
  The starting location is a reasonable drive from Harriman, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you won’t get lost. The average whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit harder to master in this state than those in other states, so keep in mind that many of the rivers here are not very forgiving. This stretch of White Oak Creek in Morgan/ Scott County is 21.3 miles long and is a class II section of
    whitewater according to American Whitewater. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way this is an area with plenty of rivers for that. Great exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors are
sure to keep you coming back for more. There are so many stretches to paddle in this river system, the Burville Road to Burnt Mill Bridge stretch is just one of many. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. If you hurry you can run this section in a day but why not make it an overnighter, so why not pack your  
camp stove too. The Cumberland Plateau Mountains scenery is wonderful. The nature scenery of Morgan/ Scott County and the playfulness of the water have people coming here. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby.

Briefly about the general area:
What would a place like White Oak Creek be without attention-grabbing close by traits like Horseshoe Bend. A journey to Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area is worthwhile, and you're sure to bump into some good folks from Sunbright here. This is a really good river. Sheep Rock is a glorious spot to have a look at while in the area.
