We decided on last minute tubing trip. Green River was fabulous. Family operated, friendly, no frills! All we needed was a quality tub for our float and a ride back to our car. Our 3 mile trip tool close to three hours. The ride was...More

We had a great day of tubing, a well spent $9 per person! You'd spend way more than that a movie and get only 2 hrs of entertainment max! The 3 mile float seemed to take us about 3 hours. The water was GREAT. Lots...More
