What an awesome experience! My wife was afraid that the upper river trip would be to challenging for our 9 and 10 boys. It was perfect. Fun and safe. Willis was our guide. He was fun and knowledgeable. Highly recommend. Top notch outfit!!
Took my two teenage daughters to the upper raft trip here and it was really great. Guides were all really nice and helpful. Judd was our raft guide and took his time to explain a lot of the rafting tricks and also the scenery we were passing. Will definitely come back when in the area.
We had a group of 3 kids from 9-11 years old and had 3 adults and had the best time. Judd was our a guide and he was so cool and knowledgeable about the river and the sites, just really pleasant to be with. And the guides from the other boats were splashing our kids and they were loving it! They guides were playing games on the ride to the drop in and cracking jokes! The rapids rocked too and the water was warm in August. They have a new changing house with showers which was about 100 times nicer then I expected and their store and check in area was new too. Really awesome experience. Judd was great he is the type of guy who can make a fun family trip or let it rip with the boys on a bachelor party. Best part of 4 days in Gatlinburg.
We had a fabulous time! This was our first time white water rafting! Our guide, Huey, really made the experience so memorable! He’s fantastic! Make sure you ask for him!!! We will always go to Big Creek Expeditions when in town!
Our guide was great as I hear most guides are the same there. Do not be afraid to try this adventure out, it is a good first level experience for white water rafting and you will be fairly safe. The guides prepare you for the adventure get your gear and drive further up the river before loading you in. Off the river you go on this manned damned river. It does not run every day of the week so call ahead, and it is highly seasonable. Waters were very cold and pleasant during August. They advice you don't bring your phone but this was a regret of mine. You phone should be fine if it's in a case or water proof. The store has snacks, shirts, art, and gills is outside for BBQ. They are building a better bathroom facility so that would be great when it is done but it didn't seem like most people used it.
