I'm going to TN at the end of next month. Are there any Big Kayak stores near buy that I can check out a good selection of White Water boats.. Can't find anything online.. Couple of stores near by, but not much of a web site to see what they have
Any one know?

The Nantahala River is right there and whitewater kayaking is their specialty. Its a big store..you need a couple of hours.
Rock Creek Outfitters|

Rock Creek in Chattanooga might be closer to you. They also have a store in Ocoee, TN but it is closed for the season.
I'm a TN. local...N.O.C. store in Galtin|

And it's a great store but not as thoroughly into boats as the original. Best to call ahead if you're looking for specific boats.
does it have paddling accessories Steve?|

I often wind up in Gatlinburg because its in my way. I was looking forward to going there instead of merely enduring tourists..

Off season I would call ahead if you're looking for specifics. It's sort of skewed to park visitor needs. Assume you guys are headed S.?
if this rain|

The technically sections are gone, one big washing machine. 20 mph until you hit Townsend. All the old low head dams are just bumps.
