CLASS III-IV     0 miles
  The wonderful Whitley County scenery and the water flowing gracefully down Bark Camp Creek are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle.

This stretch of Bark Camp Creek in Kentucky is 0 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class III-IV section. The nearby hotels are a bit
    away from the river, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. The wild scenery of the Cumberland Plateau Mountains is great. The average whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be
a bit easier to master in this state than those in other states, so if you're not from around here don't forget that a lot of the rivers in this state are suitable for beginners. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this is an area with plenty of spots for that. The Old Fluffy stretch is one of a few paddling stretches in this river system. Great exercise and just hanging out with mother nature are great reasons to come. This  
is a very short section so better bring some good walking shoes. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby.

Briefly about the general area:
You'll meet a lot of people from Corbin here, and there are nice places to look at along the Sheltowee Trace Trail. You'll truly wish for more hours in a day to enjoy all the exciting stuff in the Cumberland Plateau Mountains. Cumberland Falls State Park is a pretty location any time of year, and going for a hike on the Bark Camp Trail is always a fine adventure. This river has so much to offer. You might want to pay a visit to Broad Gap Hollow while you're here at Bark Camp Creek.
