Our last day of vacation we decided to go tubing down the little river. 1st time we went tubing, we had an awesome time. Some was like a relaxing lazy river, them some like a rapid roaring river. But it was great and only $10 for all day so awesome and great. Next time we are there we need to... More

There were several different tubing companies in the area. But we chose Cowboy Tubin' based on Trip Advisor reviews. It cost a couple dollars more than some of the others, but I think it was worth it to use a company that had been given good reviews online. My teenagers had a great time! There were a couple different sizes... More

This was our first time tubing. I have 2 teenagers and a 6 year old and we all had a great time. My father-in-law was with us and didn't want to tube. So, he stayed up on the porch and talked with the workers while we tubed. I think he had as much fun chit chatting as we did on... More

The $10 fee is absolutely great as were the shuttle drivers, however, we felt that the staff at the counter were not so friendly and inviting. At times they were a little short and blunt. Nothing was too intolerable, but it was pretty obvious that they weren't having a good day and demonstrated some frustration openly. Still the value is... More

Cowboy Tubing is a relaxing and refreshing ride through the beautiful scenery Townsend has to offer. It's definitely worth your time and is a good value because you can ride down the river all day if you want to for $10. Watch out for a few spots on the river that are rough, but that is just part of the... More

Cowboy Tubing is a great deal of fun for all ages. It is very relaxing and the people who run it are always very nice and helpful. Watch out for a few spots on the river that have faster speeds and rocks, but this is just part of the experience. You could make this an all-day affair if you wanted... More

Happy, friendly smiling staff, good equipment and a quick turn-around meant that we got two good runs and could have done a third if WE felt up to it, but we were bushed. The first run was great because of fewer people on the river. On the second run, the river was just to crowded and congested, making the rapids... More

This is the second year we've used Cowboy Tubing, and we plan to go back everytime we're in the Smokies. $10 for all day unlimited tubing shuttle service and that covers tube rental. We parked under the shade and brought a cooler with drinks and snacks this year, and last year picked up fried chicken at the IGA grocery store... More

You need to realize the waiver you sign is for a reason. We tubed on 7/31 and the water was extremely low. Dangerously low. In rapid sections of the river you can get stuck and when trying to free yourself you can both fall or have another person push you over. Very easy to fall and get hurt or even... More
