Let me preface by saying that this river is not the best tubing I've ever had, but if you are set on tubing here than this is the best company to use. The staff is very nice, and they are not nearly as big or crowded as the place down the street with the big signs. Here you'll get more... More

This has to be the cleanest, most friendliest tubing company we have ever used. The staff was very friendly and informative. The van was clean and working properly (unlike the company we used last month) They offered life vest that were in great shape and the dressing rooms were clean and spacious. I think we will be using Cowboy from... More

After reading several reviews online we chose to go with Cowboy instead of the other place we used last year. They were more than polite, and very friendly. For $9 pp you can't beat it! Of course other companies offer a lunch with their higher price, but trust me, it's not worth it! Pack a cooler and eat at the... More

We had a great day floating down the river after getting our tubes at Cowboy Tubing. They had good recommendations, like walk an extra 15 minutes and enjoy an extra 40 minutes of tubing in an area of the river that's not crowded. Or stay on the left after the bridge to avoid a low spot, etc. We got our... More

I chose this place because of the reviews and my experience was NOT good! My husband and I took our three children. My 17 year old daughter is very petite (4'11" and small frame) . The woman asked how old are the kids and when I said she is 17 she said whos 17? Where is the 17 year old,... More

We decided on Cowboy Tubin' after reading reviews on trip advisor and it did not disappoint! The staff was very pleasant and helpful! Vans ran regularly so we didn't have to wait long at all. My only complaint was the water was too low but of course this was no fault of Cowboy Tubin'! The rapids were milder than I... More

Friendly staff and nice tubes. Our float down the Little River was very relaxing. Will definitely do it again when the river is a little higher.

The real draw here has nothing to do specifically with Cowboy Tubing - enjoying nature floating down the river, a stretch punctuated by Class 2 rapids, makes for a great day regardless of whose tube you're on. That said, the folks at Cowboy were extremely friendly, very knowledgeable, and offered their service at good value. As far as "paid attractions",... More

Rented tubes from this business directly from Townsend KOA. Started our trip right from the campground and were picked up and shuttled from there location. Very convenient and good service.
