The starting location is a short drive from Crossville, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you wonít get lost. You can pitch a tent
    or park your RV at a nearby campground. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way there are lots of good rivers for that around here. There are a few other sections in this river system that can
be paddled as well. You can enjoy this stretch more if you take your time, so pack your camp stove. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. Whitewater paddling here in the Cumberland Plateau Mountains is a great experience. Getting a good workout and just hanging out with mother nature are great attractions for lots of people.
