Cherokee's and western North Carolina's number one tube and raft trip with over 200 tubes in stock, which means no waiting! We have tube and raft trips designed for everyone of every age. A great experience to see the Smokies from a unique point of view. Always cool and refreshing during the summer heat, a relaxing float down the Oconoluftee River is a welcome departure from the crowds of the reservations busy summer months. A Cherokee favorite for over 15 years!

Super fun trip with my family of five, including my 11, 9 and 5 year old children. I was able to hook up with my 5 year old which made me feel much more comfortable. Most of the rapids are pretty small so everyone was able to stay comfortably on their rafts. There were a couple bigger ones but they... More

We checked into several tube ride attractions in the area, most of them required picking up your tube, getting into your own car, drive to a location, walk a quarter mile and then get into the water, have no idea what happens after that, lost interest. At Smokey Mountain Tube and Raft, you pay, they load you on a bus,... More

We had the whole river to ourselves! It took 2.5 hours to tube down to the bridge where they pick up. If you have little kids... More

Very nice owner and staff. Good price. Be aware that this is a loooong tubing trip. It took us nearly three hours to get to the end. We got stuck in shallow areas ALOT. Definitely make sure to bring water shoes and a stick for when you get stuck. I appreciate the company's clean changing rooms once you got back... More

Even though the weather was overcast on the day we went, we still had a great time! The people in the shop were very personable and friendly. They have restrooms you can use before going on the bus ride to the drop off. We paid $10 a piece. The bus driver was friendly and knowledgeable about the Cherokee area. We... More

It was an amazing experience. The crew were funny, and sure did enjoy there jobs. I felt like we were important to them to have a great day rafting... The lessons were simple and our guide Huey was great and went out of his way to make us enjoy every moment of our experience... I cant wait to do it... More

We had a blast tugging down the creek!! We all had our own tubes. Our host took us up the hill & told us what to look for when we got close to our "Exit". He even picked us all up and brought us back to the location where they are. Super fun!!
