Rafting on the Pigeon River is a real blast. The guides are totally awesome and the beautiful mountains surrounding the river will leave you breathless. The cold water and class 3 and 4 rapids are incredible and our family can't wait to experience it again!

We stayed in a cabin with the river just behind us. It was so beautiful and the sound was very relaxing! We tried to fish but the water was to low. Still a great place to go to relax or picnic.
