We went to the outpost in Hartford, TN on a Thursday before Memorial Day. We did the waterfall gorge canopy zipline tour, followed by white water rafting on the Upper Pigeon River. The whole day cost $130 per person, with lunch at the doghouse included...it was a great experience! The zipline tour included 15 zips, some from rock cliffs, treehouses,... More

We took advantage of everything Gatlinburg had to offer, and this was the family favorite. We had Steve (Stretch) for a guide, and he was excellent. We all felt safe and comfortable, but right on the edge of excited and thrilled! Perfect combination, we highly recommend it!

Our guide Mike made everything very intense and action packed, He was full of life and made everyone completely comfortable! From sing alongs on the bus to joke about the waters, it was an amazing experience. I personally recommend Mike, as he is an excellent guide!

We had a wonderful whitewater trip with our guide Dawn! From a fun bus ride to the start of the water, to a stop and jump off a rock that was great for the young and old, my husband and I had loads of fun. We felt safe and well cared for the entire time!

We had an excellent time ziplining ! Our guides, John and Michael, are true professionals and made us feel at ease as first timers. We can't wait to go again.

This was not our first rafting trip on the upper Pigeon, but it was one of the best. The staff was friendly, and had plenty of comedic one-liners to keep the trip extra fun. Katie was a great guide, and put extra effort into making sure me and the other dad in the raft got the brunt of the over-the-side... More

I have wanted my family to go rafting for a long time. My wife never wanted to go. So, on this trip to Gatlinburg, I just made the reservations, and scheduled it without her knowing. Once the plans were made, there was no turning back. Well, today was the day. We went to Whitewater, and had a great time. Even... More

I hope this is the right place for this review. We went on a rafting trip on the upper Pigeon. Kids were 8, 11 and 13. The rapids were class 3 and 4 and were tons of fun. Our raft guide Jason S was very nice and guided us safely down the river. We got soaked and had a blast.... More

We were just here on Thursday 7/25/13. We had a blast and to add to the excitement the wife and I were ejected from the raft. Although ejected and having to swim in the rapids we still felt very safe and our guide Nate did a great job rescuing us! This is a great adventure and worth the money. Our... More
