River Rat Tubing & Rafting

Listing Information

Looking for the best Tubing in the Smokies? You’ve found it! Scenic mountain views, high-quality tubing equipment, unlimited shuttle rides, and an unforgettable float awaits in Townsend, TN! We offer two awesome tubing routes with a single wristband, 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!

Our tubing routes include both the upper and lower sections of the Little River. The lower section (Main Outpost, ages 2+) is our family and dog-friendly float, which features relaxing rapids, a private rock jump, and refreshing swimming holes! This section is ideal for those wanting to take it easy or first-timers to The Rat. The upper section (Outpost B, ages 6+) is what we like to call the “adventure float.” It features larger, adrenaline-pumping rapids and cool, refreshing swimming holes along the route.

Riverside Cabana Rentals are also available, nestled just feet from the shore of the Little River. Whether you’d like to pair your tubing adventure with one of our private Cabana Rentals, or simply enjoy the cabana on its own, there’s no better way to spend a day on the river. Check out all of the amenities we offer with these rentals on our website.

Note: Age restrictions may apply due to high-water levels. Check our website for daily updates.

Tubing Outpost amenities:

  • High-quality tubes, complimentary life jackets for all ages, tube tether rentals, unlimited shuttle rides, dog-friendly tubes, changing rooms, full-day locker rentals, car key kiosk, lunch options at both outposts, and Gift Shop
