Canoeing and Kayaking in Gatlinburg

It should come as no surprise that Gatlinburg, Tennessee—also known as the Gateway to the Smoky Mountains—is famous for its outdoor Gatlinburg activities. Hiking, biking, jogging, and exploring are a couple of the well known activities, but we can’t forget to include water-related adventures as well. Kayaking in Gatlinburg and canoeing are two such “wonderful” experiences that are guaranteed to make your upcoming Gatlinburg vacation a memorable one!

Walking trails along the banks of Little Pigeon River can be a great way to while away some extra hours of your getaway, especially since your Cabin Rental Store vacation home may be located close by, but don’t you want to get out there and FULLY experience the joys of nature as you peacefully paddle your way through some of the most beautiful landscape in all the world? Here’s how you can bring the vacation fun to the next level during your stay!

Renting the Equipment

We’re pretty sure you won’t be packing a canoe, kayak, or any of the equipment that goes along with this type of adventure in your carry-on, so your first stop will be finding a spot to rent the equipment! Because outdoor activities rank so high here in our hometown, the plethora of equipment rental places available can make it difficult for you to choose the right one—which is where we come in!

River Romps Tubes and Kayak Rentals in nearby Sevierville is a great place to start. Offering lifejackets, shuttles, and tubing tours along with the kayak rentals, their inexpensive prices make this a budget friendly way to explore Little Pigeon River. River Run Canoe & Tubing, also in Sevierville, is where you want to go for your canoe; the adventures never end on your Smoky Mountain vacation! Even better, both these places offer guided tours, allowing you to fully enjoy the experience without worries or fears!

Where to Go for Kayaking in Gatlinburg

Now that you have your equipment, where do you take it to get it wet? Chances are you will be cruising on whatever waterway is nearest to where you rented your equipment, but just in case, here are a few places that will guarantee the fun continues when you go kayaking in Gatlinburg!

The Pigeon River and its counterpart, the Little Pigeon River, offer a mixture of tranquil waters, rocky rapids, and breathtaking scenery! Douglas Lake is another fun place to paddle around and is large enough that you can still find some tranquil and secluded spots in spite of its popularity. Be sure to enjoy some kayaking in Gatlinburg for your next trip!

Family Reunions in Gatlinburg

With spacious Gatlinburg rental properties like ours, you could fit an entire extended family under a single roof. In fact, we even recommend it!

Much to Do, and Memories to Make

The beautiful Smoky Mountains and the excitement of Gatlinburg combine to make any family reunion full of fun. Outdoor activities abound—the family can try their hand at zip-lining, skiing, ropes courses, or old-fashioned hiking. Gatlinburg also hosts an aquarium, as well as the marvels of Ripley’s Believe it or Not! Odditorium, Mirror Maze, and Moving Theater. It’s the ideal town for family fun!

Of course, with larger groups, it’s reasonable to split up. Some folks can enjoy our golf courses (or miniature golf), while others enjoy Westgate Wild Bear Falls, a year-round waterpark, and still others can go shopping and see what souvenirs they can score. And at the end of the day, everyone can reconvene back at the cabin.

Larger Cabin, Better Reunion

Our larger properties are ideal for fitting together large groups of people, vastly improving the quality of the reunion time. Instead of a tangle of group texts, have everyone talk about plans over breakfast and reminisce about old times on the carpool to your Gatlinburg activity. When you come back, you can talk about your exciting day over dinner—there’s plenty of room at the table! With everyone together, you can maximize how much of your reunion you get to spend with family.

The Biggest and the Best

There’s no need to worry about how large the family is. With a rental cabin from The Cabin Rental Store, just name your number and we’ll have something for you! Do you have thirty people staying together? Forty? Fifty? We’ve got cabins of ten to even 28 bedrooms that’ll fit everyone and have plenty of room leftover! Room for what, you may wonder? Just check our amenities—some come with pools, some their own golf courses, some have game rooms—there’s plenty to do without leaving the house!

Regardless of size, our properties all enjoy TVs and fully-stocked kitchens, not to mention comfortable furniture. Best of all, there will be a vacation specialist assigned to you to make sure your stay is the best you can imagine.
