Shenandoah River Tubing

Tubing Adventures For Everyone!

Shenandoah River tubing is by far the most popular river activity in the hot Summer months. For those lucky folks that have chosen to go tubing, all you’ll need to do is check in at the office, hop on a shuttle bus and grab a tube at the river. Once you have your tube, you can just relax while the river floats you back to our office. Our Shenandoah River tubing trip offers the flexibility to go solo for some “me” time or it can be the perfect experience for large groups.

To ensure no one gets hungry or dehydrated, remember to pack your cooler with your favorite drinks (no glass bottles, please) and snacks. Don’t forget to add on a Cooler Carrier (36QT or 50QT) to easily float your cooler down the river beside you. Our laid back 3 mile tubing section of river is by far the premier tubing stretch on the Shenandoah, which includes a fun Class II rapid at the beginning, a few Class I rapids and multiple riffles along the way. There are also a couple nice islands to stop on for a quick break or to watch others float by.  If you have an event planned or a group to plan for, we can customize your tube trip to fit your specific needs. Let us help you plan the perfect stress free Shenandoah River tubing day.

Join us on the South Fork of the Shenandoah River because it truly is your day to play!
