Tuck River, Dillsboro, NC

Yes, this is an additional Tuck trip for Saturday, May 14.

Not to take away from Lee’s Tuck trip — but due to popular demand, we’re adding another trip to accomodate additional paddlers.

Tuck River Trip Details

For those coming from Smoky Mountain Meadows campground, we’ll meet at the campground pavillion at 8:30 Sat morning to load boats and sign the GCA waiver. We’ll try to leave by 9:00 for the Tuck put-in.

For those coming from Atlanta, meet at the Tuckasegee put-in (35.368248,-83.251724). We want to be ready to set shuttle at 10:00, so please arrive early to unload and be ready to go.

The put-in is just off US 23 / US 441. If coming north, cross the river then take an immediate right on N River Rd.
Immediately turn left on Webster Street (seriously about 20 ft), then turn left again into the park on a single lane gravel drive under the bridge. There is limited parking here, so we’ll unload boats, then take cars to the bottom.

Our take-out will be at Smoky Mountain River Adventures on US-74, (35.387977, -83.294107). We’ll park there and pay the outfitter to take us back to the put-in. Last year it was $5 a person for shuttle without boat. This way all our cars will be at the bottom when we get off river, so we can get back and cleaned up before the dinner at SMM at 6:00.
