Summer Vacation Fun Pigeon Forge-Smoky Mountains

What's more fun in the summer than cooling off in the water? There are tons of great choices for water fun around Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.. There's always Dollywood's Splash Country Water Adventure Park with loads of wet and wild fun but one of the most popular is in Townsend near the Great Smoky Mountain National Park border.

The Smoky Mountain River Rat offers tubing and kayaking on the Little River in Townsend. It's only about 20 minutes from Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg and only 5-10 minutes from our Heavenly Vacation Cabin Rentals.

This is my kind of relaxing in the Smokies ;-) just choose your sturdy, colorful tube at the River Rat - walk down to the river and just float in the cool water downstream about 1 1/2 miles.. THEN, the shuttle bus picks you up and carries you back to the "put in" place and you can do it all again!! How cool is that??

Husband and wife team - Shannon and Shannan have made the River Rat a family favorite. They are open all summer - 7 days a week from 10am - 5pm.
