“Awesome cheap fun for the whole family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2011

This campground is $17 a night and like most campgrounds inside the National Park does not have power or water at the camp sites but do have restrooms and water available pretty close. The campground is right next to the river that everyone tubes down and is about a mile from the tube rental place. Basically you pay $3-$5 to rent a tube all day and carry your tube about a mile (or less) up the trail and float down the cold river. Don't expect a relaxing experience. This is a pretty active and exiting tubing adventure! Wear water shoes, trust me. The water is cold but its nice. There are also several places to hike from the campground. The sites are kinda close together but they are still nice and I highly recommend this place to anyone looking to tube at their own leisure.

“You will laugh your head off!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2011

Cheap tubing and so much fun!! Be careful riding down the falls, bruising does occur. Two feet of freezing water, rapids, beautiful scenery, great fun....what more could you ask for? Highly recommended, better if air temps are warm or hot!!

“Family Fun for All Ages”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2010

This was fun and cheap! Only $3 for an all day tube rental...
Wear water shoes, or shoes you don't mind walking in and getting wet.

We walked to the top (Not Indian Falls) and went down from there..

Plan on about 3 hours to run it once and plan on having a BLAST!

“Too much fun!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2010

Tubing down the Deep Creek was too much fun. We had 3 adult,s an 11 year old, and 13 year old for tubing. It was a glorious way to hang out in the mountains on a warm summer day.

“The unknown gem of the smokies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2010

Most of the smokey mountian waterfalls are small and uneventful. If you think Laurel and Grotto Falls are cool then you have to come here and see some real waterfalls. The three here are pleasant, good trails to each and if you throw in a side trip to Mingo Falls then you will be totally waterfall fulfilled.. Toms Branch and Juneywhank are large and Indian Branch has the volume.

Just a nice place to spend a few hours..
