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.

Instead of tubing try kayaking. We do it about 4pm after the tubers. It is a lot of fun and you see a lot of interesting animals - wild horses, cattle, owls, various birds. 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

Every year around mid July. Dont matter where we are or who were with, my siblings and i always make it down to the river. Pack up the cooler with beer,soda,water,and ice. also extra tubes cause youll never know who youll met on the river. I cant get enough of this place :) Prepare to get sunburn!! haha

My BFF and I had a fantastic time on our first ever tubing trip but as many others have stated be prepared! (we learned much the hard way on this trip). The black tubes become VERY hot during the course of your trip. We had no covering for our tubes and suffered first and second degree burns from the tubes... More

Spent last Saturday floating down the Salt River with my family and 15 friends. It was so fun. Some of us rented from the local tour company, others came with their tubes. It was fun to have some bonding time without electronics (except our water proof radio). The water was so refreshing and it was great to have nothing to... More

We went tubing at Salt river on recommendations of locals. The ride up there is well organised, but be sure to take your driving licence / photo ID as it is required as the deposit. Prior to staring out DO NOT TAKE ANYTHING from the car that is not absolutely necessary - it is not needed. We had fun from... More

This was our first "tubing"-experience; together with the family we enjoyed our first days in the US. It's fun, but you rather be well prepared: the tubes get damn hot, so please bring a cover with you to keep them properly wet. Also bring tons of sunscreen with you (although applied twice a factor 50, my legs got severely burned... More

We were looking for a quick and fun excursion while in Phoenix for a convention. Price was great, only $17 and were given a $7 coupon to come again. What a great way to beat the heat in AZ. We had no idea what we were doing, but everyone on the river was very helpful and fun. There were a... More
