Grab a tube and enjoy a float down a river
Ready to cool down? Grab a tube and enjoy a float through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on the Oconlauftee River, one of the cleanest, clearest and most beautiful rivers in the SE United States. Sit back and relax and you tube along the river with a Class I rapid or two. Grab your sunscreen and river shoes and head for Cherokee, North Carolina - outfitters are available to help you get to prime put-in and take-out sites. Tubing companies generally operate from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day.
