This is a great family experience. Bring lots of sun lotion! Cruise lazily on the river watching for local wildlife and serene landscapes, then, OOPS! You are in a crazy swirl of water as the river moves up and down, tubes spin around, and the kids squeal! There is a beach at the halfway point where you can have your... More

the salt river tubing experience is great also kayaking is fun my only complaint is the folks who throw their trash in the river and they are few but the evidence remains there for a long time there are sections of the river bottom that look like a dumping ground, unfortunate more people do not care. Otherwise, the tubing and... More

This is truly one on the "Must Do" activities in the valley. Be prepared, be safe and don't get too crazy on the river. Enjoy.

We arrived right as the first bus was ready to go.....9:00 a.m. There were no crowds and once on the river it was so peaceful and quite. I was advised that going on a Sunday and early hours would be best for a more peaceful trip, and that advice was right on. I am a native of Arizona, and had... More

The Salt Lake River had a beautiful and very peaceful feel to it. The kayaking was great with a wonderful workout. The wild animals that I saw was well worth the work down the river. My favorite part was seeing the wild horses in the water.

But you need to go after the tubers are gone. It is so much fun. $6.00 to park your car at one of the entrances. There... More
