Overview

The Pigeon River offers something for everyone. Adventure down the Upper or Lower section... Or you can do both! Each section is about 6 miles long. The quick shuttles combined with the close proximity to the Gatlinburg/ Pigeon Forge area make this river truly convenient. We have individual, child, and group rates.
