We took a tube ride down the river though Backdoor Sports. You get the tubes and directions right from the "store" and hop in the rive ~50 feet from it. We were there in Aug of 2017. Water was kind of cold but not bad....More

This was a fun adventure with our family. We had kids ranging ages 5-15 plus adults and we all had a blast. It is family run and they take good care of you. I highly recommend it!

Rent a tube from them. It has a built in seat. You can rent water shoes too. If you go during the week, the river is less crowded. Had a great time, thanks!
