River Romp Tubes and Kayaks Rentals features tubing in the Smokies, with a convenient location less than five miles from Dollywood. Each tubing trip takes approximately two hours, depending on river conditions. Your tubing experience begins at the Barn and goes approximately 2.5 miles where you exit to a pavilion with a phone that is hot-lined to the office. One day Kayak rental includes two trips and all day tubing. Life jackets and shuttle provided. Fun for the entire family!
Good To Know
This is an inexpensive activity in an area that costs money to do anything. Spent about 3 hours going down the river. There were a couple of places where we had to walk. Riverbed is all rocks and boulders, highly recommend water shoes. Rocks are slippery , the shoes help to gain traction and protect your feet.
West Palm Beach, Florida
We usually tube with a different company when we are in TN but this time we tried River Romp. The staff was SOOOO nice, tubes in great shape (they even have ones with a cup holder and back pillow available.) We enjoyed the slow float down the river and enjoyed seeing some really cool homes along the way. It was not crowded. I also like how River Romp updates their Facebook page regularly. Be sure to call or check FB prior to going because they will close if they feel the water is too swift, weather too icky or there is debris in the water. I love how they look out for everyone's safety first! They do offer a Firefighter and I believe military discount. So nice.
We had a great time! 3 adults 6 kids youngest was 4 and she loved it! Be sure. You have water shoes but if you forget they do sell them. Completely recommend people visit!

When are you open?
Our Season runs from the Friday of Memorial Day Weekend through Monday of Labor Day Weekend. Additionally if weather and River conditions permit, we will be open on weekends in May and September.
Where are you located?
We are conveniently located at 1980 Pittman Center Road, Sevierville, TN (Sevier County). Only 4.5 miles from the Dollywood Entrance on Veterans Blvd. From the Dollywood Entrance on Veterans Blvd. proceed to the next Red light (Jayell Rd) - take a right and continue on Jayell (exactly 3 miles long) till you reach the only Stop sign at Pittman center. Take a left in front of the Citgo gas station and go 2/10ths of a mile - where you will see the gray "Barn" on your left. Pull in and leave the rest to us!
What River do you tube/kayak on?
We are located on the Little Pigeon River, which begins in the heart of the Tennessee side of the Smoky Mountains and passes through residential areas. We are strictly a God-fed river. We do not receive benefits of the TVA or North Carolina waterways which are opened on designated days for White Water Rafting. This is why we strongly recommend you phone before coming so we can give you a daily report of the river conditions
Are there any age, weight or ability restrictions?
Kayak Rentals' maximum weight is 225lbs per kayak.
Tubing — Children 2-4 are welcome to tube with us free of charge; however, they must ride in the same tube with an adult. Children 5-17, as well as all adults are welcome.
We are honored to say we have been blessed to serve the needs of numerous mobility challenged individuals due to our easy access to the River and exit from the River. Although we have no height, weight or ability restrictions, we will advise our customers of the daily River conditions to the best of our ability, including shallow and deep sections.
Is there any reason you will close?
Two years ago East TN suffered one of the worst droughts in nearly 100 years. We opted to close 32 days of our 102 day Season, rather than have our guest “carry” their tubes down River.
Additionally, we monitor several local weather stations, the National Weather website, and a Federal website that monitors rate of River flow per cubic foot and River height. We will apprise our guests of River and Weather conditions to the best of our ability and prefer to close, than possibly remotely endanger our guests.
