Clad in life jackets, participants leisurely drift 2.5 miles down Little Pigeon River on an approximately two-hour jaunt. Once patrons reach The Smokey Mountain River Romp's pavilion, a shuttle returns them to the starting point, where they can float down the river again for no additional fee.
The Smokey Mountain River Romp
From the Friday of Memorial Day weekend until the Monday of Labor Day weekend, The Smokey Mountain River Romp sends tube riders and kayakers traversing the tranquil waters of Little Pigeon River on inflated tubes. Visitors strap on US Coast Guard–approved life jackets before letting the water steer them for a two-hour, 2.5-mile excursion past the Tennessee side of the Great Smoky Mountains before they encounter a stretch of residential Sevierville. Upon reaching the pavilion at the end of their trek, guests hop onto a shuttle that returns them to their starting point, nicknamed "the Barn," where they can feast at the picnic grounds or spend the remainder of the day fishing. Subsequent rides down the river are also free of charge, with a final journey commencing between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m.
