if you like or just relaxing in the boat. You will have a guide with you to make
your trip enjoyable while you relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery with your family
while being splashed by the small rapids. Perfect for non-swimmers and beginner
rafters. The Lower Pigeon meets and is scheduled at the same times as the Upper

is conveniently located on the Pigeon River in Hartford TN bordering the Smokies.
We are the ending point for the Upper section of the Pigeon River and the beginning
point for the Lower section of the Pigeon River. We have many groups that raft both
sections—or split up their group so everyone rafts the section they want. We have trip times
scheduled simultaneously for groups that wish to meet at the same time, raft different sections, and
return within 15 minutes of each other.
After your trip, plan to change into dry clothes in our new changing rooms and restrooms,
right on the river. We have showers and changing rooms. Check out
our What to Wear page
for more details and pictures of our new changing rooms! We just finished making
our area more spacious and enjoyable for our guests in 2011.

experience. Our goal is to be the highlight of your vacation! Let us share with
you rafting memories that will last forever.
