Tube the South Fork of the Shenandoah River

Tube Adventures Fit For All Ages and Groups


Tubing is by far the most popular river activity in the hot Summer months. For those lucky guests that have chosen to go tubing, hop the shuttle, grab a tube, and relax while our team does all the heavy lifting for you! Tubing offers the flexibility to go solo for some “me” time or it can be the perfect experience for large groups.

Remember to pack your cooler as we throw in a free cooler tube (a tube to float your cooler) for your trip. Our laid back 3 mile tubing section of river is by far the premier stretch on the Shenandoah, which includes a fun Class II rapid, 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 and 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 tubing day. Join us on the South Fork of the Shenandoah River because it truly is your day to play!
