Townsend River Tubing



Looking for the best tubing in the Smoky Mountains?

You just found it!

Make plans to visit Smoky Mountain River Rat in 2016. Smoky Mountain River Rat offers river Tubing on the Little River. With two river trips, upper section and lower section, included in our one low price this is a must-do activity when in the Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg area.

The Upper section is the adventure float and features a scenic float with adventure rapids and swimming holes. The upper section of the river is suitable for ages 6 and up (depending on water levels) The lower section is our family friendly float and features a rock jump, rope swing, relaxing rapids, and is just as scenic as the upper float. The lower section of the river is great for ages two and up. River Rat Tubing is only 15 miles from Pigeon Forge, 20 miles from Gatlinburg, and only 9 miles from Cades Cove Scenic Loop in the Smoky Mountain National Park. We pride ourselves in our customer service and offer a great atmosphere on and off the river.

We will re-open in May 2016, for the best tubing experience in Townsend!
