E. Tennessee
Not sure exactly what kind of water you want to be on but… Maybe check out the Cumberland-Big South Fork. A group of us are going from Station Camp to Blue Heron (19 miles in two day… but we’re fishing. You could also do Leatherwood Ford to Blue Heron (27 miles) From the reports it is a class I and II depending on water level. You can check out the outfitter we are using… Sheltowee Trace

I have backpacked their many times. I was also looking at some of the boat only campsites on the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.
