We used Green River Cove Tubing and had a very god experience. They will hold your keys for you. This section of the river was fun, with rope swings and a couple of nice large, flat rocks, for breaks. The scenery is beautiful. The take-out spot is well marked (even an advance notice that it is coming up!) with a... More

We took a group of 14 adults and kids to Green River Cove Tubing yesterday and had such an awesome time. They directed us to the part of the river that had the better water flow and it didn't disappoint. There were some fun rapids as well as some slow areas that you could just relax. Everyone in our party... More

Plan for about 2 1/2 to 3 hours - tubing has some calm areas and some areas of small whitewater. The people running Green River Cove are nice. Be sure to bring water shoes.

Best Actual Tubing so far. $9 for a two hour ride ($8 if you are camping there) actually took more like 3 hours as we made a few stops. They provided life jackets also. You get in right there and take a ride which was pretty active, not like other places I've been where you get stuck on rocks a... More

Very economical adventure for the family. It was $9.00 per person for 2 hours of tubing. There was an option for 5 hours as well. The river had areas of calm river and rapids. Half way through, there is a rope swing but we had a hard time stopping our tubes. Our group ranged in age from 9- 50 and... More

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
