Lots of fun! The water was cold even in July. Wear water shoes a paddle would be helpful too... Sunscreen and two hours. Good value. Everyone in our group enjoyed!

Kyle was awesome! He took us down and told us all the names of the rapids and his names for each rapid. He made it fun by telling jokes during the class 2 rapids. We wil definitely be back and hopefully we can request Kyle again! - Nashville, Johnson City!!

The Pigeon River runs through Pigeon Forge. There are walking trails, place to put your toes in the water, places to eat and stay on the water. It is nice to walk around and here the sounds of the water around you. There are ducks and geese to feed and a campground on the water as well.

If you choose your rafting company and esthetics matter to you, then you wont like this company. HOWEVER, if you overlook its "hippie" appearance and the fact that the facilities aren't very nice then you will have a great time. My husband and I are first time rafters, and we went on a day that the waters were extremely rough.... More

The Pigeon River is one of my favorite spots. It is just a relaxing place to be. The mountain water is crystal clear, and breath taking.

This is a great river flowing through the County. Wherever you go through Pigeon Forge, Sevierville and Gatlinburg you can see the river. Great for fishing, tubing and photography.

Rip Roaring Adventures give you a great trip. Well trained staff! Rusty was my raft guide and he was very knowledgeable of the area and the places to ride horses, eat food and hike/camp.

There is a wonderful walking trail next to the river and it is a very pleasant stroll for about a mile or so. Benches, lights and shady trees make it a pretty area to walk or sit and visit with family or friends.
