for the evenings and shorts for the days. It really warms up fast.
WEATHER CONDITIONS AND WHAT TO BRING FOR YOUR
WHITEWATER RAFTING TRIP!
Days in the Gorge are generally cool. If you check the local weather in
Bryson City above, you can bet that it is going to be 5 to 10 degrees cooler in the
Gorge during the warmer months, and 5 to 10 degrees warmer in the winter months, so
Yes!, the water is Cold. It ranges from 48 - 55 degrees during the open
season. So when you get splashed, chances are, you are going to let
everyone know it. Swim suits are fine, but we suggest they be worn under
your shorts and T-shirts.
You and your feet are going to get a little wet, so if you have some sort
of closed toe shoe that you don't mind getting wet, that will be perfect.
If not, we have "neoprene wet shoes" called booties that we can
rent to you for a small fee. During the Winter or Cold months we have the
full line of Wetsuits, Booties, Splash Jackets and Pants. Bring something
warm for your head, and we'll have the showers hot for you when you return
to the Outpost.
If you have a camera, or something that you want to keep dry, we suggest
that you double bag your items in zip locks, or we have water proof cases
and zip bags that you can purchase here.
Absolutely "No Glass or Cans" are allowed on the River. If you
want to bring something to drink, bring a plastic bottle, and keep the lid
on it when not in use. We discourage eating on your trip. It is only 2
hours on the river, and food usually means wrappers and containers that
turn into litter, and they tend to be the last thing you think about if things get
a little hairy. We do everything we can to keep our river clean. We have a
picnic area on the campground for grabbing a snack either before or after
your trip, or we can arrange a BarBQ or Pizza Lunch for you that will be just
right before or after your trip.
And if you really need to be told, we are concerned for your safety,
so Absolutely No Alcohol or Drugs are allowed. If you are under
the Influence of either, or we suspect you are under the effects of,
you will not be allowed on the river, and will not be eligible for
a refund. We are concerned about your safety, and the safety of others
who might stop and try to help you.
