We thought we would have a slow, easy ride on the river. Well, it was partially. The middle of tubing was slow. The beginning and ending tubing was dangerous. At the initial starting place, you have a 2' jump into the river. The river is only about 1' deep and very rocky. I would strongly suggest wearing old tennis shoes... More

Went to floatrite at apple river for my bachelor party. Wow. One of the best times I have ever had in my life. Who knew that floating down some tubes for a few hours was such a great experience. Some good stops along the way with big crowds to party and have fun. I will say though, not a place... More

Living near the Apple River myself, I can say that the River's Edge is the best place to camp because your trip down the river starts here. The campground is huge and beautiful, with views of the river everywhere. The staff opens the bar in the evenings for karaoke. I only hope they can open the restaurant for full service... More

We rented tubes from the Hideway and they told us they are open until 8pm, but we were done tubing at 645pm and waited for 45 minutes to be picked up after a passerby called the owner of the Hideway to pick us up, as we kept watching the people at the River's edge bus coming and going 3-4 buses...

Gosh what a fun place to play and camp. As soon as we got there we got our suits on and headed to the river for tubing....the water was cool at first but we adjusted quickly. And by the time the rest of our camping buddies arrived we were able to tube again down the Apple River. We had a... More

Just want the public to know, especially women, that there is sexual harassment that goes on while tubing. Be aware of teenage/college age males with plastic beads who approach & think that they are at Mardi Gras wanting to give you beads in return that you take your top off. Security is needed. There is no one to go to... More

The tubing: The river is a little dirty, and shallow. The "Rapids" are not much. But if you like to sit in the sun - this is a great place to do it. Just be sure to go on a weekday to avoid the drunken, mardigras-like parties. River's Edge: Good. Fair pricing, great service. You leave your keys with them... More

I live within 1 mile. The campgrounds are nice and the tubing is fun. I suggest that if you tube with a family, go during the week. Weekends are usually for the younger crowd escaping the city.
