Pigeon River RaftingTrips Near Pigeon Forge & Gatlinburg TN


Having fun whitewater rafting with Wildwater

 

The Pigeon River’s close proximity to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gatlinburg / Pigeon Forge, Maggie Valley and Asheville provides an accessible exciting trip for the entire family.

The Upper has five miles of intermediate class III and class IV rapids which provides a fun, fast-paced whitewater run through rapids named Powerhouse, Big Rock, Roller Coaster, Lost Guide and Double Reactionary.   Our raft fleet is self bailing and all Guests have a guide in the raft with them.  Summer Trips scheduled Memorial Day thru Labor Day.  Summer Pigeon River Release days are Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday plus Saturday.

We will also be offering early fall rafting after the final Labor Day release through September 27. The water levels will vary from class I-II with the possibility of levels up to class IV rapids.  We will not know the level until time of rafting.  You may ask why we do not know the levels until time of your trip, it is because they are determined by natural flow of the river and the power companies need to generate electricity!

Be sure to add lunch to your days activities at the Pigeon River Dog House!
