Tennessee whitewater, Clear Creek

Morgan county, Jett to Lilly section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II-III     2.5 miles
  The natural beauty of Tennessee and the playfulness of the water have people coming here. 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 many of the rivers here are not very forgiving. There are so many stretches to paddle in this river system, the Jett to Lilly stretch is just one of many. Some people prefer whitewater
    rafting and some kayaking, either way there are lots of good rivers for that around here. Getting your paddling muscles activated and just hanging out with mother nature will make you glad you came. The put-in is not too
far from Harriman. This is a pretty short section so no need to bring snacks. This section of Clear Creek in Tennessee is 2.5 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class II-III section. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. The Cumberland Plateau Mountains scenery is wonderful. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick.
