    distance then no problem but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. The put-in is not too far from Harriman, if you're not familiar with the area there's a road map further down the page. Whitewater
paddling here in the Cumberland Plateau Mountains is a great experience. Getting your paddling muscles activated and just being out on the river for a while are sure to keep you coming back for more. There are a few other stretches in this river system that can be paddled as well. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, this area has a large number of paddling places. This stretch has has enough mileage,  
it's perfect for a one day trip. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby. The scenic beauty of Morgan County and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water make the trip here worthwhile.

Briefly about the general area:
The panoramas at Obed Wild & Scenic River will blow your mind, and there are plenty of folks from Wartburg here. So many cool things in the Cumberland Plateau Mountains, just astonishing. A visit to Frozen Head State Park when you're here at Crooked Fork Creek is never a bad idea. Crooked Fork Creek sees pretty high levels of rain. Most of the rain falls through March, and October meanwhile is the driest month.
