Our family of four, including our 7 and 9 year old children had a great time on our first rafting trip. Our guide was Jason, "Doc", and he was excellent. The trip included a few "swimming hole" stops and a stop at Jump Rock where we took turns jumping into the river. We washed out of our boat once, which made for a memorable experience. After a five mile trip down the river, we boarded a large boat and ate lunch while relaxing. If you are in the area, check it out!

Doug was guide and super personality. Great guide. very enjoyable raft ride. Water was up on Tennesee river for our ride. Great rapids with very little paddleing. Trip was everything we wanted it to be. The bus ride leaves a little to be desired though. The Bus is antiquated and when it poured rain on the way back...apparently the wipers do not work because "cousin It" didn't put them on. Not the safest move with 28 people on board. Lunch was actually better than we expected for being free and kinda out in the forest. The proprietor/bus driver/moderator, really could use a refresher course in public relations. A little personality goes a long way customers. 26 people on our ride, all 1st time rafters with families, and appeared all had enjoyable experience. A great day on the river.

Great experience we enjoyed, first whitewater for the grand kids ( ages 9,12, & 13). Our " captain" was well knowledgeable and guided thru two class 3 - 4 rapids that day while other rafts were not so lucky. We enjoyed jumping off the rock & plus stopping at various swimming spots. The outfitter crew did a great job preparing and making it a memorable trip down the Cumberland.The scenic trip ended with lunch and boat ride down the river which gave us plenty time to relax & recant our rafting experience. Once again we like to thank "Papa Smurf" family and his crew for a memorable trip.

This was my 14 year old son's first whitewater experience (I've done several but not this outfitter). Along with us were a family from Wisconsin, mom dad and two teen daughters. The overall experience was very good!! The guide, name Jason but call him "Doc" was absolutely amazing! He made the young first timers feel very safe and secure while also making it a whitewater adventure full of some good pulse quickening moments! It was the first time I have ever been 'tossed' hahaha! Just wish I hadn't taken the young lady sitting behind me out as I went lol! I wish it could have lasted longer but the falls dictate you can't start farther upstream and it ends in lake but the outfitter does a great job and the employees are what make the outfitter!! Thanks to you all!
