The rivers for whitewater rafting and kayaking in this state are often tougher than in other states, so if you're not from around here don't forget that quite a few of the sections here are not easy. This river system is full of great paddling stretches, the Twin Bridges to Barnett Bridge stretch is just one of them. If
    you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. The scenic beauty of Morgan County and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream will make you feel great. This stretch of White Creek
in Tennessee is 7 miles long and has been rated as a class I-II section by American Whitewater. Getting some good exercise and just hanging out with mother nature will have you coming back for more. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. This stretch has has enough mileage, it's perfect for a one day trip. Since you're on this  
site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way there are lots of good spots for that around here. The river winds through the Cumberland Plateau Mountains and you get great scenery.

Briefly about the general area:
You'll meet a lot of people from Deer Lodge here; if you have the time, Obed Wild & Scenic River is a national park worth visiting. Now, you may think that's a lot but there's even more cool stuff to do here in the Cumberland Plateau Mountains. White Creek gets a great deal of water. Most of the rain falls through March; the driest of the months is October.
