We're your float trip and tubing destination on the Tuckaseegee River in Western North Carolina. There is no better location in the Southeast to go rafting with your kids.
We are currently offering $5.00 off for members of any branch of the military as well as those of you working in law enforcement or as a fire fighter. Thanks for your service! Limited to one discount per group or family (for example, you cannot use a group and a military discount).
River trips start from our Outfitters at Barkers Creek Crossing 3 miles North of Dillsboro (NC 28725) on hwy 74 & 441. We issue equipment and do our pre trip briefing at the Outfitters. The Outfitters location is where you park your car and return to at the end of your trip. After your trip visit our store for outdoor equipment, t-shirts, snacks, and more. The Tuckaseegee Outfitters also offers clean restroom facilities for customers. Your 5 mile trip down the river from Dillsboro ends at our Outfitters so no 2nd. bus ride in wet clothes to your car.
Float trips on the Tuckaseegee with us are set up self-guided allowing your group or family to go at your own pace not led down the river at a pace dictated by scheduling demands. This allows time to stop enjoy the views and step back from the often hectic pace of life (Reservations Recommended).
Guided float trips are available for those who feel the need for that extra help or attention. With prior reservation we can arrange to have a guide acompany you down the river. Call or e-mail to confirm your reservations.
We offer a variety of craft for your river adventure talk with your group or family and our staff to choose the one that best fits you and the water level. The local power company releases water at different levels depending on the time of year and power demands. During the times of high water a raft offers a more stable platform for your river adventure.
