  The starting point is not too far from Harriman, if you're not familiar with the area there's a road map further down the page. If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside this state you might find the rivers here a bit more challenging, so don't forget that a large number of rivers in this state are not easy. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this area
    has a large number of paddling rivers. Whitewater paddling here in the Cumberland Plateau Mountains is a great experience. This stretch is mid length, good for a one day paddling trip. The Highway 52 to Clear Fork River
section is one of many paddling sections in this river system. Getting your paddling muscles activated and spending some quality time in nature have a lot of people coming here. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. This stretch of White Oak Creek is 6 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class I-II section.  
The wonderful Tennessee scenery and the water flowing gracefully down White Oak Creek are reasons enough to come here and paddle.
