If you're coming from Newport it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location. The average Tennessee whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit harder to master than those in other states, so keep in mind that quite a few of the sections here are not easy. The wild scenery of the Great Smoky Mountains is great. You can
    pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. No need to look hard for hotels, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. Getting some good exercise and spending some quality time in
nature are sure to keep you coming back for more. The scenic beauty of Tennessee and the playfulness of the water make the trip here worthwhile. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this area has a large number of paddling places.

Briefly about the general area:
The best way to spend a winter day is on the slopes of nearby Cataloochee. On a fine day at Rip Roaring Adventures you can take a hike along the Stone Mountain
 
Trail, and the nice folks of Cosby like to hang out close by. This river is so perfect. There is a great hiking trail in close proximity to Rip Roaring Adventures called the Lower Whiterock Trail; Hickorynut Gap is positively a great location to explore. The high level of rainfall makes Rip Roaring Adventures a reasonably wet spot. Of all the months in a year May is the one with the most rain, and the driest month of the year is October.
