This was our third time white water rafting and our best trip ever! We did the upper river and our guide Alex was wonderful! She made sure everyone felt safe while making the trip a ton of fun. Enjoyed swimming towards the end of the trip, would recommend Smoky Mountain Outdoors & the river guide Alex!

My daughter and I had a great time this past weekend down the lower section. She was too nervous for the upper section without any experience. Our Guide Farris was really sweet, and awesome, so when we go back ( and we definitely will) my daughter is excited to do the upper section. Thanks Farris we loved you....

My first time rafting. there were 6 adults with our guide Hailey. We had a blast!! Thrilling but safe at the same time. I know that most of us almost fell out, but there are so many people around that you are perfectly safe if you do. (I saw no one in the river) Great opportunity to swim at the... More

We had a blast. My wife was pretty nervous at first but that vanished after we got through the first rapids. She was also worried about the weather but that became an afterthought quick. Our guide Stanley did a great job of keeping us entertained even in the slower parts and keep us heading for the best parts of all... More
