About Smoky Mountain River Rat Tubing and Whitewater Rafting

River Rat Tubing: Top-Rated Tubing Outpost in the Smokies | Townsend, TN

Looking for the best Tubing in the Smokies? You’ve found it! Come float your way down two routes on the Little River in beautiful Townsend, TN. We offer both awesome tubing routes with a single wristband, which you can float as many times as you want during operating hours on the day of your visit.

The lower section (Main Outpost, ages 2+) of the Little River is our family-friendly float and features relaxing rapids, scenic views, and even a rock jump! This section is ideal for those wanting to take it easy or first-timers to The Rat. The upper section (Outpost B, ages 6+) is what we like to call the “adventure float.” It features a scenic float with adrenaline-pumping rapids and cool, refreshing swimming holes.

River Rat Whitewater: Top-Rated Whitewater Outpost in the Smokies | Hartford, TN

Adventure enthusiasts of ALL experience levels, look no further! River Rat Whitewater is home to the top-rated, guided rafting adventures on the Pigeon River. All of our guides are triple-certified in safety training and ready to uniquely cater your rapids expedition to the adventure type that you’re looking for.

For the adrenaline-seekers, our Upper Pigeon Adventure combines class III and IV rapids with the natural beauty of the Smoky Mountains for an unforgettable river-bound expedition (ages 8 and older). For those wanting an even more adventure-packed tour on this section of the river, we also offer our Extreme rafts. Our Extreme Upper Pigeon Adventure includes smaller rafts, where you’ll take your expedition up a notch and feel the full excitement of every rapid.

Rafting with young ones, or just want to take it easy? The Lower Pigeon Adventure has plenty of rapids to satisfy your craving for excitement, but mellow enough for even the youngest thrill-seekers with gorgeous mountain views on class I and II rapids (ages 3 and up).
