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.

  • We decided to go on the tubes last minute. I think the price is high just because you do it that day, but you still have to do the reservation online, but have to pay more because it is the day of. The facility seems nice, you just pick a vest, a tube and then load up in the bus. We went on the faster part and it took about an hour, but we weren't in any hurry to get there and stopped along the way to have fun and just play in the water. The staff seem nice and helpful if needed. The tubes are large and great for any size person. We had a good time.
  • Did course B and it was pretty good. Hit some rocks but not terrible. Took around 45 min and this is with what they consider water high. I would not go if it was any lower. Read a 178 today.
