Smoky Mountain River Rat Tubing
Looking for the best Tubing in the Smokies? You’ve found it! Come float your way down two routes on the Little River in beautiful Townsend, TN. Both awesome tubing routes are included with all day passes, season memberships, and adventure packages - which you can float as many times as you want during operating hours on the day of your visit. Groups of all sizes are welcome. The bigger your group, the bigger your discounts!
The Main Outpost float is our family-friendly float and features many small, refreshing rapids, scenic mountain views, swimming holes and even a private rock jump! This section is suitable for ages 3+, is dog-friendly and is ideal for those wanting to take it easy or first-timers to The Rat.
Outpost B’s route is what we like to call our “adventure float,” as it features a handful of steeper, adrenaline-pumping rapids, refreshing swimming holes, and gorgeous mountain scenery along the way! Due to the increased physical requirements of this route, this float is suitable for ages 6+. Dogs are not allowed on this route. You can also find our luxury, Private Riverside Cabana Rentals at this outpost. A full list of cabana amenities can be found on our website.
