If you're coming from Crossville it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location, as you can see on the road map further down. The campgrounds here at Caney Fork are pretty good. The nature scenery of Tennessee and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water have people
    coming here. This is a pretty decent length section, you can easily run it on an afternoon. Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way this area has a large number of paddling
