Located at 245 Durham St. in beautiful McMinnville Tennessee, Smooth Rapids was formed out of a love for lazy river floats. We specialize in the highest quality kayak and tube rentals for a stress free experience. Our service is also mobile. This allows us to design the perfect trip for your group based on experience, water levels, or the desire for different river runs.  The local rivers in McMinnville are perfect for beginners and kids.

In 2014, we introduced our new campsite with full river access. Our restaurant is now OPEN! We feature a 10 acre campground  that is perfect for tent campers and outdoor events!

We can handle all your event planning needs from outdoor concerts to catering. Check out our “Demo Videos” tab for some of our favorite events. If it’s doable, Smooth Rapids has you covered!
