River Romp Tubes and Kayaks Rentals in Sevierville, TN
1980 Pittman Center Road • Sevierville, TN 37876
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!
This is a great outdoor experience for families with children of varying ages. Our guide provided required life jackets for the children and great advise before putting us on our tubes. The float trip took about 2 hours and they picked us up at the end point and shuttled us back. They have a couple picnic tables on site and advise you arrive early to take advantage of multiple trips down the river. Bring water shoes!

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.
Can I bring a cooler? Can I reserve a float for my cooler?
Customers are not allowed to bring their own coolers. Guests may rent specialized floats with coolers. These particular floats are in limited supply. Guests may call ahead to reserve a cooler float.
