A great river with lots of opportunities for rafting, rock hopping, rock skipping, swimming, fishing and relaxing. Our family loves to explore the many ways to enjoy the river throughout Unicoi County.

An absolutely picturesque mountain river. Something to do for everyone. My family played on the sand bar and rock garden while others fished and rafted. A must see.
