If you're coming from Asheville it's not a long drive at all to the starting location. The average whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit easier to master in this state than those in
    other states, so don't forget that many of the sections in this state are safe for beginners. The nature scenery of North Carolina and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water are reasons enough to come here and paddle.
Getting some good exercise and just being out on the river for a while will have you coming back for more. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking there are lots of good places for that around here.
