Wow, this was a great experience! We were taken in minibuses from the ticket counter further up along the river and took the tubes back. 3-4 hours of floating on the beautiful Shenandoah river.

We are a couple in our sixties. Just had a trip in a canoe down the river for hour and half possibly. Have never done it before over these "Rapids" (grade 1 !!!) but thoroughly enjoyed it.

I believe they will allow you to bring your own canoe and/or kayak but they do charge you for dropping off/picking you up with it. The best thing is to call them and they will provide you with the cost. Have Fun!!
