Family Trip Suggestions

We're taking the family to Arkansas next year, Crater of Diamonds State Park. We're starting near Detroit, MI, going through Nashville to do a potential college visit and then on to Arkansas. Looking for a good place to go white water rafting along the way. The kids will be 16 and 13 next year so should be able to handle some decent rapids, but certainly part of an outfitter rafting trip. Any suggestions? Didn't see anything near Nashville.

Not exactly a direct path from Detroit to Arkansas, but theres the Ocoee River down by Chattanooga, TN.

Thanks, I'll take a look. It is a bit off the path but it's a pretty popular river. I also found a place in souther KY called Sheltowee Trace Outfitters that has trips on the Big South Fork river near Cumberland Falls. Anybody hear of them? Is this a decent trip possibility?

Look into the obed river in Tennessee between Knox and Nash ... Beautiful area and you could always stop by rock island as well...
