Great customer service! - I was really looking forward to this! Sadly the weather didn’t cooperate. Many roads/backroads that we were going to go on were closed. They called us that morning to let us know and gave us the option to switch to another day or cancel. Sadly this was our last day, so we had to cancel. I love how this company put their customer first! We will definitely be using them next time we come down!

Perfect 50th birthday present! Awesome company to rent from! - Absolutely perfect! I rented an one day rental for my husband’s 50th birthday. It was perfect thanks to SMJR! Jeep was in fantastic shape. Check in/return process was smooth and fast. Trip suggestion, via map, was laid out amazingly well. We packed a picnic lunch and enjoyed the day. Will definitely rent from SMJR again.

A must do in Pigeon Forge! - A must do in Pigeon Forge! Staff is awesome & extremely knowledgeable. They provided us with a map consisting of preferred driving directions. Our low mileage jeep was spotless and filled with gas for us. You must see the Smoky Mountains from within, a jeep rental is the perfect fit. Mark & Rhonda

Rent a jeep, it’s a blast! - Rent a jeep! The mountains are better seen in a jeep. We had so much fun in this jeep. The staff was friendly. She gave us a map, which we followed. My only suggestion is,you don’t have to follow the whole map that is given. ( the staff did say,it’s just a suggestion) We would totally do this again!! The store is really nice too! Cool items! Bought a really cool shirt and stickers!

A Must Do - Renting a jeep from Smoky Mountain Jeep Outfitters was the best experience while staying in Pigeon Forge. We saw a couple of bears on journey. The views were spectacular. I would definitely recommend renting a jeep for a day from them.

The best rental place in Smoky!!! - I highly recommend rentals Jeep Smoky Mountain Rentals. This is the 2nd time when we rented a Jeep at Smoky Mountain Jeep Rentals. Their customer service is exceptional! Lady gave us many advice where to go to get the best view of the Great Smoky Mountains and the view was breathtaking! They gave us a little map so we knew where to go. They also provide all year permit to enter to the National Parks in the area so you don’t have to worry about where you can park the car. Pick up time is at 11:00am and drop off at 9:30am the next day. You can also drop off the car after closing time. There is a special mailbox to drop off the key. Whatever will works best for you. Don’t hesitate and rent a Jeep at this place, it’s really worth it!
