No nonsense services for AT hikers, including lodging, transportation, gear. Highly recommend! Johnny is spot on with his recommendations around town. He serves as a much needed go-between for hikers and what Erwin has to offer.

We rafted with USA Raft (see my review on their page). The Nolichucky was a beautiful river although late June water levels had gotten down to summer lows a bit early. With the river flowing less than 500cfm rafting was difficult and less challenging than we would have liked. Every raft in our group got stuck at least once and... More

We stayed at the facility as well as rafted with them. It was a lot of fun. If you have time go on the cave trip they offer tooo. It not just a walk through cave but an actual caving experience.

Hard to find but worth the pursuit. We couldn't stay away and visited daily once we found this natural setting. It is close to tubing and rafting or just relax next to or in the river. Shallow and rocky it was perfect for sitting, exploring or swimming in the deeper middle. Water in summer is cool and refreshing. Scenery is... More

This is a beautiful river! Great for rafting and fishing, seeing as it's a natural flow river. Not having to depend a dam to release water is a huge relief!

I have been a professional river guide for years. When my guest ask "where is your most favorite river you have ever paddle?" My response is always, "the nolichucky in east tennessee, and I have paddled up and down the east coast."
