I highly recommend this company if you're looking to go white water rafting near Gatlinburg! When we arrived to book our trip, they were extremely helpful and informative about which river would be the best with our family (two of us had never been before). We chose Big Pigeon River, which had enough 3's and 4's to keep the guys... More

We went on a family rafting trip and had a great time. This company seems very safety oriented compared with other rafting trips we've done in the past. Very reasonable prices and the water is much warmer than in Colorado for example. I'm not sure the so-called class 4 rapids were really class 4 (rather than class 3) but that... More

What a great experience! The staff and guides were awesome and friendly. We had so much fun! Got soaked and laughed our way down the river. The rapids are mostly class three with a few fours. Our guide, Chris, took us surfing three times in a rapid and we even had a chance to swim. Fantastic time. Highly recommend. If... More

Most fun ever! To start w I did my research on what company to use and I'm so glad I did. Our guide was Johnny and he was great! We could tell he knew what he was doing and we all felt safe. Another local company had a boat stuck and their guides didn't even have paddles? Noc was great!... More

Great experience from start to finish. Friendly and knowledgable staff set us up for our rafting of the Upper Pigeon Gorge and even gave us a discount. Perfect driving directions. The outpost has bathroom/shower/changing facilities and small shop for convenience. Our guides were great. Made us feel comfortable and safe (Billie and Nichole) for our first time out. It was...

Everybody working in the NOC that I came encounter with was super patient. My family and I went there for fishing licences and the cashier really took her time in explaining the details and regulations and gave ideas on where to fish. My Goddaughter also climbed the rock climbing wall (easy and difficult side) which gave her a workout she... More

This store has tons of hiking and camping supplies. Hiking boots, sandals, clothing, gear, and pretty much anything else you need to trek out through the wilderness. I just enjoyed looking. The store was set up nicely and even had a little wooden swinging bridge on the top floor.

After many years of service, and many, many miles of trails, my boots gave out on me in Smoky Mountain National Park near Gatlinburg, TN. We had a lot of hiking yet to do, so I needed a repair quickly! Who knew that in the kitsch and neon of Gatlinburg we'd find that and more? NOC had Freesole shoe repair... More
