It was a great find and sweet spot. The cabin's beds were on the hard side, but it was clean and fun to stay here. There is a group kitchen also for making meals and a shared bath, which was a clean-as-you-go deal. I'd go...More

This River was made the Raft. The area has bunches of wildlife and foliage. The surrounding Cherokee National Forest is unspoiled.

We had an amazing trip down the Nolichucky again this year. The exciting rapids, the beautiful outdoors, and the camaraderie that always brings people together. My 14-year-old daughter fell out of her kayak on the first stage of a level 4 set of rapids. She'd...More

we rafted through the NC/TN section and the scenery was breathtaking. Saw several birds including a bald eagle. Water was low so the speed was slow but it was fun nonetheless.
