Awesome Value for your $$$'s!! A little bit away from the beaten path (pigeon forge, Townsend, Gatlinburg)... but great people! Perfect guide (Andy)!! Fun enough for people who have white water drafted before... but toned down for younger audiences...Thanks!!

I have rafted with five different companies and USA Raft is by far the most professional and organized rafting company I have experienced. We had our 4 year old with us and our guide went above and beyond to make sure she was safe and had fun. We highly recommend!!!

USA Raft ended up being an awesome company to raft the Pigeon River with. There are several companies and USA Raft was not as visible in the advertising as others but our cabin company recommended them. The facility was well kept, and the staff was all very friendly. We were fortunate enough to get Damon as a guide, and we chose the extreme rafting adventure, which was definitely more exciting and enjoyable than the traditional rafting. If you want a fun guide that also happens to be attractive - ask for Damon. The facility had a shop offering things you might need, and they actually had a couple of showers that appeared to work. Anyone would be well pleased with the experience with this company.

My family rafted today, ranging in age from 9 to 65. Our guide was friendly, funny, but most of all experienced! He made us feel safe and made sure the trip was extra fun! I have rafted with this company twice before on another river. I always recommend them!
