Did You Know? 

Fall in the Smoky Mountains is breathtaking! Why not experience it from the natural flowing rivers? If the the summer months kept you busy, you can also raft in the fall! If you’re heading to the mountains this fall, be sure to make time for whitewater rafting. After Labor Day, the river is not guaranteed water release from the dam. This means that guests are rafting at natural river flows which can be unpredictable. The exciting part is that you could experience the class III & IV rapids or the I & II rapids. In addition to experience the river, you can also see how the trees begin changing for the fall season!

Just ask one of the staff what the river looks like that day, and they’ll let you know. In addition, Rip- Roaring Adventures tries their best to offer the absolute best pigeon river experience no matter what the water level is!
