The beautiful scenery of Tennessee and the playfulness of the water will make you feel great. Whether you're whitewater rafting or
    kayaking in this general area you'll find lots of paddling rivers. This river system has a few good paddling sections and the Waldens Ridge to Soddy Daisy section is one of them. If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking
outside Tennessee you might find the rivers here a bit more challenging, so don't forget that quite a few of the sections here are not easy. There are some good hotels near the river, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. This is a somewhat short section so it's not like you're gonna spend hours on the river in one stretch. Great exercise and spending some quality time in nature are sure to keep you coming  
back for more. There's camping available near Falling Water Creek.

Here at Falling Water Creek there are plenty of folks from Signal Mountain, and Falling Water Falls is always fun to check out. Falling Water Creek is next to Harrison Bay State Park which is a charming place.
