The tubing down the river was relaxing, as well as exciting times on the rapids areas. The actual business was just ok. The bus dropped us off at the site where the tubes were. They said take a tube and life jacket and drove away....More

Spent a few hours tubing down the river with my 16 and 6 year old. Fun with plenty of small rapid to keep it exciting. Temp out were lovely. Perfect off-the-beaten-path activity.

Terrible equipment which made tubing almost impossible and brutal on the body. Not my idea of a fun day let alone enjoyable.

I don't think you can rent tubes and take back to your cabin, but most cabin rentals have tubes there that the owners leave for the guest to use. You may want to ask the owner. Also, tube at the WalMart in town are only... More

I've always gone without reservations. Their service is very basic and based on the assumption that people will show up and have fun. It is very casual- to the point that they may not have the best service, but when you get... More
