Tubing in the Smoky Mountains is as much a part of a Smokies summer vacation as planning a trip to Dollywood, or taking a hike to Mount LeConte. It’s just something you do around here in the summer. If you’re in Sevierville, there are plenty of opportunities to get out, float a tube, and just relax on down the river.
Tubing is also one of the cheapest ways to enjoy the Smokies. And places like River Rage Tubing in nearby Townsend specialize in tubing FUN. For a mere $8 you can rent a tube and spend all day on the river. Each time down you can simply ride the shuttle back then ride down again. It’s still only $8 there are no additional fees for as many trips as you’d like to make.
As for the river itself, River Rage provides for tubing on the Little River in the Smoky Mountain towns of Sevierville and Townsend, TN. If you’re looking at other tubing options, you’ll likely be charged in the $12-16 range to tube the Little River. At River Rage Tubing you can choose from different size floats . Pick the one that you’ll feel the most comfortable in. You’ll also enjoy private access to the Little River, 3 different locations to choose from, etc.
When you’re not floating down the Little River, River Rage’s BBQ restaurant is a great place to take a break and get some good grub. Besides a restaurant, River Rage has a place to ride Go-Carts on site and there are restrooms for those who might need to change clothes following a day on the river. Is there a better way to spend a day in the Great Smoky Mountains? It’d be hard to find one. You don’t have to take a class or anything to go tubing, just start floating and enjoy the ride!
