Nestled along the Little River in the historic “Peaceful Side of the Smokies”, River Rat Tubing is the ultimate summer vacation destination for nature-lovers, adventure-seekers, and relaxation-enthusiasts. We are family-owned and operated, so no matter the occasion, River Rat is a perfect, wholesome way to let loose in the great outdoors.
