Because we had young grandchildren with us, we were only able to do the Lower portion of the river, but it was fun. Our guide Chuck made it as exciting as possible as there are really only class two rapids along this portion of the river. It is very calm but good for children and folks who don't want to... More

Our guide was Chris Young and would highly reccomend him. This was our second time rafting on the Pigeon River and it was a better experience than our first trip. It was a great experience and the views on the river are great.

We chose the upper river trip. The trip was perfect for my wife and kids. Not very rough and a great introduction to rafting. If... More

There were 8 of us who enjoyed the zip lining and rafting on our trip. The ages in our party ranged from 67 to 11! Everyone had such a wonderful time! My father teared up on the ride back to our resort saying that he has always wanted to go rafting and this was the most memorable day of any... More

About a 40 minuet drive from Gatlinburg, this place is well worth the drive! We went white water rafting with them twice and my husband did their rope course, and we both went zip lining. Soo much fun! The guides make a lot of corny jokes to try and help relax those that are a bit more nervous, and very... More
