This was our second time using Don't Fish Camp to park, rent innertubes, and take the bus to upstream to float down. Easy experience and the quality of the tubes was great (had a back from neck support).

We went tubing for the day and it was $19 a person just to rent a tube. It's cheaper if you bring your own, but other than that it was fun!
