I called ahead & got a reservation. This was the highlight of our vacation! Everyone in our family of 4 ,ages 11-47 loved it! We got 2 tandem kayaks. Would love to go again! Definitely worth the money!

We had a blast on the calm tubing trip. There were just enough small rapids to make it fun with the in-laws and cousins but still calm enough to crack a few brews. They will rent you a tube for your cooler. The whole trip...More

We patronize Tuckasegee Outfitters almost every summer. They are the best for guided rafting or renting a 1-person ”duckie.” If you have small kids or just want a low-stress, fun day on the river, call them! This July we saw a family of bald eagles...More

This was a perfect introduction to some rapids that roll and turn down the river. The children were thrilled and we felt safe with enough excitement.

My wife and I, and another couple, enjoyed a relaxing, and sometimes thrilling, ride down the Tuckaseegee River one afternoon. The boats (two-person inflated kayaks) served us well. It would be interesting to try the single kayaks, but my wife prefers to have me in...More
