River Romp Tubes and Kayaks Rentals in Sevierville, TN

River_Romp_Tubes_and_Kayaks_Rentals_(002)This rafting center is located on Pitman Center Road.  I have found that it is sometimes easier to get around Pigeon Forge by this road.  It is much less congested and parallels the Pigeon Forge Parkway (it is about 6 miles off the Parkway) and turns into Birds Creek Road at Upper Middle Creek Road.  Birds Creek Road will take you into Gatlinburg.

Each trip takes approximately two hours, depending on river conditions. there is a shuttle to take you back from your trip. Afterwards you can enjoy a picnic on the grounds, fish or take another ride down the river at NO ADDITIONAL charge. You can ride all day!

The River Romp is a family owned attraction in its 20th year in the water recreation field. they are located on the Little Pigeon River, less than five miles from Dollywood’s Splash Country, yet it offers the scenery and peacefulness of a secluded mountain river.

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. Once you identify yourself, they will dispatch a driver, who will pick you up within minutes and return you to the “Barn,” where you can get back in the River, picnic, leave and return (prior to 4:00 p.m.) and take another ride.
