Citico Creek, Tennessee, US


2. Doublecamp to Little Tennessee River

Usual Difficulty II-III (for normal flows)
Length 17 Miles

River Description

This is said to be similar in difficulty to the lower Tellico. Doesn't run as often, though. The majority of the run is roadside. There are a number of good campsites along the river, along with numerous access points. The further upstream you go, the steeper it gets. There is one dam than may need to be portaged.

Around swirl hole bend where the creek splits into two channels there is a strainer across the
whole creek if you take the left section. Also a mile or so after this a tree blocks all but a 4-5
foot gap on the left of the creek. Otherwise an extremely fun paddle when everything else is too
