USA Raft

Cocke county, Tennessee whitewater outfitter

 
  Whitewater outfitter

If you're coming from Newport it's not a long drive at all to the starting location. A bit of exercise and spending some quality time in nature will make you glad you came. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. The average whitewater rafting
    or kayaking river tends to be a bit harder to master in this state than those in other states, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that rivers here are not as easy as elsewhere. The beautiful scenery of Cocke County
and the water flowing gracefully down USA Raft have people coming here. The Great Smoky Mountains scenery is wonderful. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this is an area with plenty of spots for that.
