Tennessee whitewater, Doublecamp Creek

Monroe county, to Citico Creek section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS IV     3.17 miles
  If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside this state you might find the rivers here a bit more challenging, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that quite a few of the sections here are not easy. The put-in location is a short drive from Knoxville, as you can see on the road map further down. This stretch of Doublecamp Creek in Monroe County is 3.17 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class IV section
    of whitewater. A bit of exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors will make you glad you came. There are some good stretches to paddle in this river system, the to Citico Creek stretch is one of them. This is a pretty
short section so you'll have to walk back to the start over and over. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this is an area with plenty of places for that. The beautiful scenery of Tennessee and the playfulness of the water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. And of course, there are campgrounds  
nearby. The beautiful Great Smoky Mountains scenery is an added bonus.

Briefly about the general area:
Doublecamp Creek is right by the Rocky Flats Trail, and sites like Fort Loudoun State Park are good to visit. Now, you may imagine that's heaps but there's even more fun stuff to do here in the Great Smoky Mountains. Take a hike on the Mill Branch Trail, and at Doublecamp Creek you always meet someone from Vonore. This is a great river. Doublecamp Creek is a wet place that gets lots of rainfall. The month of March is the wettest with most of the rain while October is mostly the driest month.
