The Green River is a must see. Beautiful trees, rocks, water. No industrial invasion in this prestine gorge. I wouldn't take small children because the water is fast and rocky. But I try to go at least once per year. Best tubing in WNC.

The Green River was always a great way to spend the day. Its now more family oriented and you can no longer take your cooler...lol. But it is still a great way to spend a hot summer day..

I have gone down the green river several times and learned from each trip. I discovered that the best and most enjoyable way to ride the river is to carry a long stick, be it a real stick, an old mop or broom handle as long as it's approximately 3-4 feet. This helps you to avoid rocks and other treacherous... More

Beautiful and relaxing with a touch of excitement going down the levels, lower river only. It was nice to have the option of doing the one hour twice instead of the 2 hour trip and having more grades to contend with. More instruction for first timers would have been nice, since the river divided between trees, rocks and an island... More

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

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
