It was great to watch and feed the geese and ducks on the river by the Hotel. My husband was so impressed with the river he wished he brought his fishing gear.

The pigion river was great. My family of five was in one boat with the guide who's name was papa mark.....he had a great personality and was very experienced. We had a great time and can't wait to do it again!!!

Rafted with NOC upper pigeon river. Rapids were level 3 and 4. River guides were excellent. This was an exciting activity for a family with children age 8 and up. Would recommend this adventure for sure!

Sat on our balcony and watched the ducks play in the pigeon river. Beautiful sight. They would come on the bank to be fed by guest in the Motel.

Was going to dip a line and fish for a little while behind the hotel but warning sign about human feces pollution kept me from ruining myequipment.

It's pretty and great for a relaxing stroll along the River Walk. However, it has a bad smell at times and the signs warning visitors to stay out of the water because of sewage are troublesome.

OK, listen up tourists. The Pigeon River is not in Pigeon Forge and we don't have any rafting here either. Go to Gatlinburg and hook up with the companies there or go to where the actual rafting is one county over in Hartford, TN. Post...More
