The scenic beauty of Tennessee and the playfulness of the water have people coming here. The put-in location is a short drive from Cleveland. The average whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit harder to master in this state than those in other states, so better not forget that many runs in this state are not easy. The river
    winds through the Great Smoky Mountains and you get great scenery. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. Getting a good workout and a chance to spend some time outdoors have people coming from far and near. There
are nice comfortable hotels here, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking in this general area you'll find lots of paddling spots.
