While the 2016 tubing season may officially be over, it’s never too early to start planning your next vacation to the Smokies. When you make your next spring or summer trip down to Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge, we think you should highly consider a river tubing adventure on the Little River! Tubing in the Smokies is an amazing experience for the whole family. Children as young as 2 years old are welcome to come and tube on the Little River, and children between the ages 2 and 5 always tube for free! No matter who you’re bringing with you, now is the time to start making your reservations for the 2017 tubing season, starting in May.
River Rat has been serving the East Tennessee community since 1995. Shannon and Shannan Skidmore have been running River Rat since they graduated from ETSU, and have been growing the business for the past 21 years. With their experience and a family atmosphere (their children Emily Kate and Joseph are frequent tubers and on-site helpers), River Rat provides customers with the attention and passion that cannot be found anywhere else.
Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, taking a Scout Troop trip, organizing a school field trip, forming a church group outing, or initiating a team building activity for work, Smoky Mountain River Rat tubing is a perfect, wholesome way to let loose. In addition, Smoky Mountain River Rat tubing offers the best service, equipment, and customer service in the area — we cater to your group’s every need!
Want to experience multiple tubing routes on the Little River? River Rat offers two tubing trips for the price of one! With tubing trips on the upper and lower Little River, you can experience all of the beauty and excitement of the Little River and the Smoky Mountains for one low price! The lower section and main outpost is our family-friendly float and features relaxing rapids, scenic views, and even a rock jump for the more adventurous visitors! The upper section of River Rat Little River tubing adventure is what we like to call the “adventure float,” because it features a scenic float with adrenaline-pumping rapids and cool, refreshing swimming holes.
So plan your trip to the Smokies and come spend an afternoon with us at Smoky Mountain River Rat! We pride ourselves on our customer service and will do everything we can to ensure that you have a blast on the Little River. We know you’ll love it!
