What to Expect

The Hiwassee is one of the very few Tennessee State Scenic Rivers. It is accessible to all levels of paddlers. It is a comfortable float punctuated by occasional Class I & II rapids. The trip is self-guided so you can enjoy the river at your own pace. Chances are that you will get wet, and the water can be cold. Note: All individuals must sign waiver forms before rafting. Parents/ guardians must sign for minors. Must be 18 years or older to float alone; 12 – 17 year olds are allowed in 1 person kayaks and tubes WITH ADULT SUPERVISION.

Recommended Gear

Your boat, paddle and personal floatation device are provided with your rental. Shoes are required in the river. Closed toed river shoes or Chacos are ok. No flip flops. We recommend that you bring personal items like sunscreen, insect spray, water, snacks, waterproof bag for your phone, camera, car keys etc. Coolers (non Styrofoam) are OK, but alcohol and glass are not allowed on the river in the Cherokee National Forest. If you forget something, our camp store probably has it.

Reviews From Our Guests

“The water of the Hiwassee is clear, clean and refreshing. It is a great way to spend a vacation day…or two.”


 “A handful of mild rapids make the day fun and exciting. Stop and body surf Devil Shoals for an extra thrill. “


“Having paddled and rafted for 40+ years, I keep coming back to the most beautiful river in Tennessee, the most family-friendly river around.”


“These guys are more personal than the bigger outfitters on the river. We’ll be back.”


Frequently Asked Questions


Booking your rental early ensures that you secure your kayak! If you have a large group or family, you should book as soon as possible.


Aside from wearing something that you don’t mind getting wet, the best rule of thumb is to keep an eye on the weather. See what temperature the water is, how warm of a day it will be, and how sunny. Protection from the sun is always encouraged whether that is sunscreen or a protective lightweight long-sleeve. A hat with a brim helps keep the sun off of your face and out of your eyes. Wear quick-dry shorts or pants on the bottom and wear water shoes or sandals on the feet.


You may cancel up to 48 hours before your rental. If you have issues canceling, contact us.
