North Carolina whitewater, Tusquitee Creek

Clay county, Route 1330 to Route 1300 section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-II     5.2 miles
  If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside North Carolina you might find the rivers here a bit more manageable, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that many runs in this state are very easy. The Route 1330 to Route 1300 stretch of Tusquitee Creek in North Carolina is 5.2 miles long and it is classified as a class I-II section by American Whitewater. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a
    short distance then no problem but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. Getting some good exercise and just hanging out with mother nature have people coming from far and near. The beautiful
scenery of North Carolina and the water flowing gracefully down Tusquitee Creek are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. This section is long enough to enjoy a good non stop paddle, it's good length for a morning trip. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby. The Route 1330 to Route 1300 section is the only paddling section along Tusquitee Creek. The wild scenery of the Blue Ridge Mountains is great.
