Tennessee whitewater, Clear Fork

Morgan Scott Fentress county, Gatewood Bridge to Brewster Bridge section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-II     12 miles
  The starting location is a short drive from Crossville. The nature scenery of Tennessee and the cool fresh water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. There are plenty of other sections in this river system that can be paddled as well. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Tennessee are harder than the national norm, so keep in mind that lots of rivers here
    are not for beginners. 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. When you're paddling down
a Cumberland Plateau Mountains river like this one you always get great scenery along the way too. A good workout and spending some quality time in nature are sure to keep you coming back for more. This section of Clear Fork is 12 miles long and has been rated as a class I-II section by American Whitewater. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this area has a large number of paddling places. This section has enough mileage  
for an overnight trip, so go ahead and pack your sleeping bag.

Briefly about the general area:
Pickett State Park is a pleasant place to stretch your legs a bit, and why not take a refreshing hike along the Lake View Trail. There's no way anyone can get bored here in the Cumberland Plateau Mountains. This is a popular place for folks from Allardt, and the Ridge Trail offers hiking at its best. At this river you will always have a good time. The high level of rain makes Clear Fork a quite wet place. The month with most of the rain is March while October is the month with the least amount of precipitation.
