Tennessee whitewater, Caney Fork

White Van Buren Warren county, Bee Creek to Collins River section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-III     27.1 miles
  The starting location is a short drive from McMinnville, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. The Bee Creek to Collins River stretch of Caney Fork in White/Van Buren/Warren County is 27.1 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class I-III section of whitewater. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in Tennessee is often more difficult than elsewhere, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that rivers
    here are less forgiving. There are plenty of other stretches in this river system that can be paddled as well. The wonderful White/Van Buren/Warren County scenery and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream
are reasons enough to come here and paddle. The river winds through the Cumberland Plateau Mountains and you get great scenery. You can enjoy this stretch more if you take your time, so pack your sleeping bag. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. A bit of exercise and spending some quality time in nature  
will have you coming back for more. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way around here you'll find a large number of good spots. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground.

Briefly about the general area:
Burgess Falls State Park is a splendid place to explore on a wonderful day, and there are plenty of folks from Doyle here. Yeah, come up here to the Cumberland Plateau Mountains for a perfect time. A trip to Rock Island State Park when you're here at Caney Fork is never a bad idea, and a delightful location is Hickory Valley.
