Smoky Mountain River Rat Tubing offers river-tubing fun for the whole family. You can take it easy or go a little faster with two sections of the Little River available for tubing. The upper section, the adventure float, offers a scenic trip along tree-lined banks that features rapids and swimming holes. The lower section serves as a family area with a rope swing, small area of more gentle rapids, and a rock jump. Bring your swimsuit and water shoes. Tubes with covered bottoms are available for very small children; you can also rent a tether to attach your child's tube to yours. Use our Townsend online sightseeing planner to arrange your visit to Smoky Mountain River Rat Tubing and other attractions in Townsend.

First time whitewater rafting while vacationing this past week, we had the best time ever! The instructors were absolutely amazing, extremely professional, and super informative. Thanks to Ashley, Crash, and Jake who were very welcoming,, personable, friendly, and courteous. I give 5+ stars for this establishment! We'll be coming back to Smokey Mountain River Rat on our next vacation to Tennessee!
Went with 6 kids and 3 adults. Unfortunately the water was very low but we still had fun. Would have been a lot better if the water was higher though. When you get to the place you can buy water shoes for $12 tethers for $5 and you get $2 back when you return the tethers and then you can rent a locker or they hold your keys for free. Half way through the river there is a rock that EVERYONE stop and jumps off of it. You go down the river and 2 miles down (the end) you get out and they take you back to your car (the beginning) in buses. Super cool would definitely like to do it again but when the water is higher.
