We took our four children out for a day tubing on the Shenandoah River. Setting up the outing was easy and we had no problems. The day was a little bit overcast, so the crowds may have been lower than for a sunny day. A bus runs all day (10 AM to 5 PM) to take you to the river entry from which you drift 1.5 miles back to the lace where you park. We also did a combo deal where you can kayak or canoe. If you come there are not many picnic tables, so plan on bringing you own food and chairs, tables, etc. to use for picnicking. The changing areas and bathrooms are also primitive, so be prepared. The changing area is a tent separated into two areas by a wooden wall with benches and the bathrooms are port-a-johns. We made a reservation, but they are very loose about it. You can show up most anytime and get on the bus with your tube. Not fancy, but a lot of fun.
