Big Creek Expeditions Upper Pigeon River, Hartford, TN 2MAY2013
Whitewater/camping trip with my son who recently returned from overseas deployment. Great times!
Upper Section Whitewater Adventure
Trips on this section launch at the TN/NC state line, surrounded by views of the mountains as well as the hydroelectric powerhouse feeding water into the river. And it doesn't take long to get into the whitewater. Within minutes of the put-in, guests find themselves paddling into their first Class III rapid of the day; the aptly named Powerhouse. With the help of an experienced guide, your group will continue through a total of 10 Class III rapids and 3 Class IV rapids, before finishing the trip back at our outpost. With rapid names like Lost Guide, Double-Reactionary, and Snapdragon, guests can expect plenty of excitement on this trip. But don't worry, there will still be time between the rapids to take in the views, soak up some sun and have a swim. This is the ideal trip for those wanting to enhance the beauty of the Smokies with the thrill of whitewater rafting.

Whitewater Rafting on the Pigeon River in the Great Smoky Mountains!
Located near Gatlinburg, TN, the Pigeon River is the 3rd most popular whitewater rafting destination in the United States!
We booked our adventure with Smoky Mountain Outdoors and had an awesome experience! Our guide was experienced and the rapids were tough, but not too difficult that a 1st timer (like ourselves) can't conquer.
This video shows the Upper (or the Big) Pigeon River, which offered an exciting 6.5 mile raft trip down class 3 and 4 rapids through the heart of the Smoky Mountains.

White water rafting on the Upper Pigeon River

Pigeon River Vol. 1
Some of the footage from our 2016 pigeon river trip. Finally got around to putting it together nearly two years later.
Shoddy camera work, apparent audio issues, and mediocre editing brought you this video. Maybe i'll invest in a gimble and learn to take good shots on the GoPro next time. Until then, enjoy.

White Water Rafting (my trip to Gatlinburg Tennessee part 2)
The white water rafting was a blast. The tour was 80 bucks, which I think was the cheapest quote we got on it. Most of them run about 100 dollars. I'd highly recommend doing this if you go to Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge, but do keep in mind it's a physical activity.
In a larger party it would of been easier, but with just me and my wife paddling and carrying the boat we were pretty wore out by the time it was over.
If you do this also do not trust google maps as they will lead you to the office instead of where the tour is actually at so when looking on gps the tour will actually be 45 minutes away from Gatlinburg and not in the city itself.
