Tennessee whitewater, Duskin Creek

Bledsoe Rhea county, Gap Road to Piney River at Spring City section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS III-IV     2 miles
  The nature scenery of Tennessee and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water will make you feel great. The Gap Road to Piney River at Spring City section of Duskin Creek in Tennessee is 2 miles long and has been rated as a class III-IV section by American Whitewater. The put-in is not too far from Crossville, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you wonít get lost. This section is quite short so better bring
    some good walking shoes. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in Tennessee is often tougher than elsewhere, so keep in mind that a large number of rivers in this state are not easy. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby
campground. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, around here you'll find a large number of good places. The wild scenery of the Cumberland Plateau Mountains is great. Getting some good exercise and just being out on the river for a while are sure to keep you coming back for more. There are a few other sections in this river system that can be paddled as well. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if  
you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car.

Briefly about the general area:
A visit to Duskin Creek wouldn't be complete without taking a look at Stinging Fork Falls.
