About Outdoor Adventures and Our Trips

Our outpost is conveniently located on the Pigeon River in Hartford TN bordering the Smokies. We are the ending point for the Upper section of the Pigeon River and the beginning point for the Lower section of the Pigeon River. We have many groups that raft both sections—or split up their group so everyone rafts the section they want. We have trip times scheduled simultaneously for groups that wish to meet at the same time, raft different sections, and return within 15 minutes of each other.

After your trip, plan to change into dry clothes in our new changing rooms and restrooms, right on the river. We have showers and changing rooms. Check out our What to Wear page for more details and pictures of our new changing rooms! We just finished making our area more spacious and enjoyable for our guests in 2011.

Enjoy your day rafting with our friendly and entertaining guides and staff here for you. All of guides are trained and certified in at least CPR and First Aid, and are here to show you and your group an exciting and SAFE experience. Our goal is to be the highlight of your vacation! Let us share with you rafting memories that will last forever.
