Went there today with my wife and daughter, overall good time. With the water level so low, it wasn't a great time, this tubing place was nice and the employees were helpful, liked to place, but they do not control the water level. Would have had a better time just swimming in the area at the beginning of the trip.... More

This place charges $10 per person, which is very reasonable. The facilities are spotless and the employees were very friendly. We went when the water level was down, but it still was a great time even with the extra work required. Our 6-year old had his own tube while the 2-year old rode with us. The big operators in town...

The shuttle was a great service. We did not have to wait at all to be taken to our stops. The staff was friendly and courteous. It was a great value.

My husband and I rented a tube from Cowboy Tubing because they have tubes to rent at the KOA Campground where we were staying. We did not use the shuttle service. The tubes held up well considering the water level was not very high and we got stuck on several rocks along the way. We had fun but would like... More

We had a blast tubing here last year. This time I have to give a warning: do not tube if the water level is low. The rapids disappear, it's obviously shallower (more rocks to get stuck on), the ride becomes long and boring, lazy sections become dead still. I couldn't wait to get out of the tube. We had just...

LOVED tubing with Cowboy tubing. Everything was GREAT! They were nice, courteous, informative, friendly ....... We'll not go tubing with another outfit. Price was only $9.00 per person for the whole day. Very cheap entertainment for the day and so much FUN!!!!!!

I didn't know beforehand that this was only the UPPER section of the little river, but still glad we went. Cowboy tubing drops you off seemingly farther up than the other tubing companies (aka a longer ride) and then you get to go down about 4 rapids and a few lazy river sections until the end. We ran it 3... More

Went tubing with the family at Cowboy Tubing and it was a lot of fun for everyone. The staff was great very helpful and friendly, their bathroom were super clean. You rent the tube at their location and they drive you to the starting point. We went through a few rapids which were so much fun. The kids and non-swimmers... More

The location was great for tubing. All places take you up to the park boundary and end at the tubing location. Cowboy Tubin' was at the perfect spot where you get to go through all the fun parts without being stuck in the slow part of the river longer than you needed to be. Price was great, and everyone was... More
