Week of Rivers is the Carolina Canoe Club’s flagship annual paddling event. Each year around the 4th of July, much of the CCC’s membership converges on the Smoky Mountain Meadows Campground in Bryson City, NC for 9 days of paddling fun, evening activities, and camping. Bryson City is nestled in the western corner of North Carolina, right in the heart of whitewater heaven, the Nantahala River Gorge. Though not a comprehensive list, nearby rivers include the Nantahala, Tellico, Tuckasegee, and Ocoee. Rivers a longer distance away include the Chattooga and the Little (TN). Daily paddling trips to the regional rivers are organized at the morning meeting, which usually begins at 8:30am at the very conspicuous meeting tent on the campground. Trips are offered for all skill levels: Expert, Advanced, Intermediate, and Beginner / Novice. It's not necessary to sign up for the daily paddling trips, just show up!
