Deep Creek has its headwaters below Indian Gap (elevation 5,286 feet) and flows through the valley between Noland Divide and Thomas Divide, which rise above it. The watershed is completely within the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, thus ensuring its excellent water quality. Deep Creek continues as a small, fastmoving stream with a steady gradient until just before joining the Tuckasegee River, where it flattens out somewhat. Tubing is one of the main forms of recreation for campers— young and old—at Deep Creek Campground, as well as for the local populace. The run is short but delightful for the experienced open boater.
