The staff was friendly and we really had a good time. For only $9.00 per person you can tube down the river for over two hours. A bus will pick you up and take you back to the parking area. They do not provide life vests so bring your own although they did have a few laying around for people... More

Our family went tubing on July 2nd 2014. You have a choice of renting a "boat" or a tube. The boat rental is $20.00 and the tube is $9.00. If you have a small child they can ride with you in the boat. Part of our family rented the boats and several of us the tubes. You can choose from... More

SilverCreek doesnt have to sit and wait on their tubers, they know when the people which are tubing are due to get off the river. They send the bus at the time needed so people don't have to wait. They strive to get this done, I dont see any way possible to run 800+ tubers in one day, and do... More

This was a quiet relaxing tube ride that almost anyone could do. The vegetation is lush and green. I felt very safe with my four children ages 9 to 17. They all enjoyed it. Great value for 9 bucks

I am surprised by some of the reviews here. Not sure what they were expecting, but having tubed a number of places, this is by no means a dangerous place. A few of the rapids are fast, but bringing a 6 year old along could be a lot of fun, depending on the kid. I did the upper part yesterday... More

I tube the Green River via GR Cove at least 4 times every summer. The staff are friendly and informative. Just a reminder, if you're looking for safety, try visiting your local public pool. The company rents their tubes, offers life vests, and even gives you a lift to and from. It is NOT their responsibility to hold your hand... More

We just went with a group of adults and kids from 10 to 45 and everyone had a blast and want to go back ASAP. Keep in mind that this is a river, not a man made ride and coming in contact with tree branches or rocks in the shallow parts is entirely possible. We had about half of our... More

For our group it was an overall fun experience. Staff is very helpful and friendly. We called ahead and they informed us the river was quite rough, so we knew already it would be a bumpy ride. They told us they are at the mercy of the dam, so it's a good idea to call the night before and see... More

Wanted to take my six year old for a safe tubing experience. Called ahead and lady said this was perfect for a young child. She recommended the course that would be mild and had several areas for swimming. Swimming for your life, maybe!! We asked for life jackets and she said we could use one of theirs but didn't have...

This place was recommended to us by another tubing company that was unable to accommodate us due to a tree that had fallen across the Broad River. There were 3 adults and two 6 yr old girls. When we arrived at the office we were told there was an upper or lower we could tube down. We told them we... More
