Clean restrooms and changing rooms are available for when you are getting ready for your adventure or preparing to head home after a great day with us. Between activities, visit our Pigeon River Dog House for a delicious lunch! You can also enjoy the use of our volleyball court or check out our souvenir shop! The Pigeon River’s close proximity to Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Maggie Valley and Asheville provides an accessible exciting trip for the entire family. Rafting on the Big Pigeon River is done on two sections. The Upper Pigeon is more exciting and the Lower Pigeon is a little more tame. Our Pigeon River Canopy Tours opened in May 2010, and is the only zipline/canopy tour that crosses over the Pigeon River, has a platform on the side of a cliff with waterfall views and has a reppel through our ‘rabbit hole’. Enjoy a soaring and gliding experience naturally fueled by elevation change in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. This adventure is available in a short and longer version to fly you beside, above and 1200′ across the Pigeon River and back to your starting point at heights up to 120 feet above the river. We are close to Asheville, Knoxville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Tours run rain or shine. Combine this with a Pigeon River rafting trip and/or Jeep® tour for a full day of activities. Add lunch at the Pigeon River Dog House!
