About Smoky Mountain Tube & Raft
Cherokee's and western North Carolina's number one tube and raft trip with over 200 tubes in stock, which means no waiting! We have tube and raft trips designed for everyone of every age. A great experience to see the Smokies from a unique point of view. Always cool and refreshing during the summer heat, a relaxing float down the Oconoluftee River is a welcome departure from the crowds of the reservations busy summer months. A Cherokee favorite for over 20 years! AGES 5 AND UP.

Super fun. The staff are so nice. Highly recommend especially over the other tubing places nearby. They take you and pick you up from the locations.

This was awesome! Went with two teenage boys who loved it! Lots of rapids and a couple of difficult spots to maneuver so I would NOT take young kids or anyone it physically able to handle it. Cost $12 and a friendly bus driver takes you to the start, giving you all the info

Took my grandson's tubing for the first time, wasn't sure what to expect. The staff were informative and helpful. We enjoyed it so much, we went back the next day. Don't expect huge rapids, this is a leisurely tubing experience for young and old. The bus was always there within
