Second Annual Week on the

Hiwassee River

At Gee Creek Campground

Saturday August 19, 2017 to Sunday August 27, 2017


We had a good attendance last year and had a great time, so we will be doing it again this year!


Come join us for a week at Gee Creek Campground for a fun time camping, cooking and canoeing.


You can make reservations for a campsite at Gee Creek Campground for the entire week, or just a few days, or the weekend.  If you have an R.V. or a tent, come join us. The weather should be great for camping right on the river. (Generally cooler at night)  We will be base camping at Gee Creek and going out each day to paddle different sections of the

Hiwasseeand other area rivers.


We plan to do some Dutch Oven Cooking, so bring your outdoor cooking equipment and join us for some good fun and food.  If you don’t have a Dutch oven, you can just cook anyway you like.  Dutch oven cooking on the river goes well with paddling each day. When we did this before, we had several Dutch oven cooks who did a fantastic job, so bring your oven and they will teach you how to use your Dutch oven cookware.  If you don’t want to cook, come anyway, and you will discover just how good Dutch oven cooked food can taste. We plan to have a watermelon cutting one afternoon after paddling, and also, there is a BBQ restaurant near the campground that we will go to one night for dinner.


We will paddle somewhere each day, so come and meet new paddling friends.  We can paddle the lower

Hiwasseeand take out at the campground, just off the river, or go to another river in the area.  (If you would like to lead a trip, on a river in the area that you know of and have doe it before, please let me know, and we can include it.)  We hope to have a canoe trailer for some of the shuttling depending on how many come.  If you have a canoe trailer, please bring it.


We hope to have a campfire each night, so please bring some extra firewood, if you have it.  The wood needs to be local TN wood in order to bring it into the campground, per park rules.  Some of the greatest times are sitting by the campfire and sharing good times and stories.  Come ready to tell yours. Even if you can’t camp or paddle, come by the campground and sit a spell by the fire with us. 


The agenda will be relaxed and easy going as we can’t get on the Hiwassee until we have a good water flow around 1pm, so we can sleep in late, have a late breakfast and enjoy another cup of coffee before leaving out to paddle. 


If you have a pop up canopy, please bring it and we will put them together to eat and cook under to stay out of the weather.


If you are interested in this fun, kid friendly event, please contact Buddy Wise (205) 672-9025 at home or email,com.
