Had a great time tubing with the family. Staff friendly. Can't wait to go back. Picnic tables on site. No bathroom for changing, only port-a-jon so come ready and dressed for tubing.

So if you plan a trip on a sunny hot summertime weekend be prepared to wait in line to pay and for the bus to take you to the upper section of the river. I called ahead to ask how early I should get their to avoid there busy time and they said by 11:30. I got there at 11:00... More

This place is fabulous!! Staff great & extremely friendly/helpful!! My son & I had the best time!! Plus it was only $9 compared to sites that were too crowded & overpriced. Green River Cove Tubing is the one you want. Only minutes from Mars Hill/Asheville area. Go & enjoy!!

Our family went tubing on the Green River in Saluda, N.C. We had a blast! However, it was not for the faint-hearted ! It was actually whitewater tubing complete with drops. Four of us were flipped out of our tubes. Two of us almost lost our bathing suits ! Only one of us wasn't "dunked." There were a lot of... More

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
