The starting location is a short drive from Newport. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in Tennessee is often tougher than elsewhere, so don't forget that lots of rivers here are not for beginners.
    The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. Whitewater paddling here in the Great
Smoky Mountains is a great experience. The scenic beauty of Cocke County and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream beats anything. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking in this general area you'll find lots of paddling rivers. Getting some good exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors are sure to keep you coming back for more.

Briefly about the general area:
There are great spots to explore along
 
the Lower Whiterock Trail; during your trip here you'll meet some people from Hartford for sure. Just can't get enough of the Great Smoky Mountains. Going for a hike on the Stone Mountain Trail is always a great adventure, and Trail Hollow is a perfect location to stop at. Lots of fun awaits you along this river. Really great skiing awaits you at Cataloochee. Outdoor Adventures sees pretty high levels of precipitation. The month with most of the rain is May; the driest month is October. All through the warmest time of the year here at Outdoor Adventures, high temperatures regularly get into the 80's while overnight lows are regularly in the 60's.
