3 Summer Adventures To Experience Before Going Back To School

Summer may be coming to an end, but there’s still time to make the most out of this gorgeous Tennessee weather and the rivers that run through the Great Smoky Mountains. Before folding up your swim floats and packing a new backpack, have one last summer adventure in Mother Nature’s waterpark with River Rat Tubing and Whitewater Outpost. Our adventure packages are designed for a wide range of ages, abilities, and thrills. 

Fishing Adventure

Who doesn’t remember spending summers fishing with dad off the dock in the warm Tennessee sun? Before school starts back, take your little fisherman up to the Great Smoky Mountains to learn about fishing from an experienced guide on this adventure package. Against the tranquil backdrop of towering trees and babbling brooks, your guide will lead you in an instructional course covering gear selections, casting techniques, reading the river, and so much more! Included in this package is everything you need to have a successful trip including gear, tackle, transportation, and guiding services. Our fishing lasts approximately 3 hours and we guarantee you’ll have a catch before the day ends! The minimum age for our fishers is 8 years old and it is required to have a valid Tennessee fishing license to participate. 

Lower Pigeon Rafting Adventure

Designed for even our youngest thrill-seekers, our Lower Pigeon Rafting Adventure contains just the right amount of thrills while being tame enough for little ones. Your adventure begins at our Whitewater Outpost in Hartford, TN where you will meet your guide and prepare for your ride on the rapids. Included in this 2-2.5 hour adventure is everything you need to enjoy your time on the water. We provide you with all necessary equipment, transportation, and guiding services so there is no need to worry about coming prepared. We only ask that those participating in our rafting adventure bring a quick-drying swimsuit or shorts, secure water shoes, and a towel with a change of clothes.
