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

My husband and I and our family did a half day, class 3 and 4 rafting trip and loved it. USA Rafting is a great company and their staff are so nice and fun to be around.
