River Romp Tubes and Kayaks Rentals features tubing in the Smokies, with a convenient location less than five miles from Dollywood. Each 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. Fun for the entire family!
Good To Know
We had a wonderful day on the river. If you're looking for something fun to do that's inexpensive this is a great way to spend the day. Dianne and the staff were awesome and the scenery of the river was too! We had so much fun we ended up going twice and thank you for the military discount!
The water is the most refreshing and therapeutic I've ever experienced. A series of small rapids bring the excitement, while the flow provides a total relaxing sensation. The young workers are polite and friendly, adding to the experience, while Diane in the office manages people with a professionalism and a smile. We had several great experiences in the Smoky Mountains, but none even touched this. We went down the river twice- so for less than 40 bucks, we had six hours of perfect connection with nature. We even saw a few people fishing, and catching. A 10/10 place to go.
Staff was fun to talk to - polite & helpful. Tubes were in good condition. Outhouse was clean. River conditions were ideal. The only negative was the location of the river: too close to a noisy highway and the endgame is located a residential area where everyone was mowing their lawns. Not bad overall. It would have been really great if the noise pollution was a bit less.
What a great float! Left at noon and floated/played for 3 hours. Shady and lazy was the treatment I needed today and they did not disappoint. The staff was friendly the tubes clean and properly inflated and the woman behind the counter was the ideal country ambassador. Thanks for the afternoon when we come back to Tennessee we will float again.

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?
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.
