The Little Pigeon River, which got its name because the birds seemed to favor the area, has long been at the center of Pigeon Forge’s history. The West Prong of the river has help to provide the area with fresh ground corn and wheat from the Old Mill located along its banks. This is a central meeting place for the community and place to enjoy the scenic view that makes Pigeon Forge so special.

Little Pigeon River is located entirely within Sevier County, Tennessee and is made up of a series of streams which flow together on the dividing line between Tennessee and North Carolina.

Anglers will find outstanding fishing opportunities in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, as well as the Little Pigeon River. Locals and visitors alike enjoy peaceful walks along the tree-lined Riverwalk Trail that travels parallel to the Little Pigeon River.
