OUTPOST A (MAIN)

This is our family and dog-friendly tubing route! Your first time at the Rat? We recommend floating this route first.

Splash through a series of relaxing rapids and swimming holes, take the plunge and jump off our private River Rat rock jump along your route, and enjoy gorgeous Smoky Mountain views on our Main Outpost (A) float.

Remember – you have access to both A and B routes all day ’til the last trip time of the day, so arrive earlier to get the most paddle, splash, and play out of your tubing pass!

Age minimum: Suitable for ages 2+**

**Additional age restrictions may apply under high-water conditions, so check our Weather and Water Levels page on the day of your visit!
