“River Ride”

Satan's Kingdom State Recreation Area
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Heart thumping rapids on a tube. Bus picks you up at the end of ride, which probably is an hour long on the river.

Park your car and walk downstream along a long ago washed out tail track. The vfiews are worth the trip

I would go tubing every weekend if they just cut the distance in half. You have a ton of fun in the first half, going over some small rapids, but then the river stands still and you have to paddle the rest of the way. Your arms will be jello, and cut from the edges of the tubes. The water is beyond freezing and you will be so numb and miserable by the end. Don't go if theres a droubt, because you will either have to get out and walk in some parts where the water is so low, or at least scratch up your butt pretty good on some hidden rocks. Otherwise it's a great thing to do with friends or some older kids. You can also bring your own rafts or rent one next door (probably much better quality) and go on your own without paying. Lots of people float down with a cooler of beer. Theres a spot where you can get out and go over the rapids again and again, and another with a giant rock you can jump off of. A pretty fun time until the last leg.

Ok, here it is : when I was in the few rapids or a current that moved me, it was GREAT!
However, I was disappointed in how SlOwwwwwww it was otherwise. Honestly, I thought the river would be high because of the rain we've had, but it was NOT. Evidently the damn Dam regulates the flow of water. So, it was not what I wanted which was faster. The last 45 minutes the river is more like a pond with very, very little flow. I am going to suggest a Tow Rope be constructed because by the end of the trip, I just wanted OUT and it was difficult getting to the end.

Had wonderful time floating down Farmington River with 9 & 12 year olds - very easy to get into and enjoy ~2hr of time on the river. Great way to cool down and spend time together with tubing and swimming. Thrill-seekers (i.e. older kids) might find the pace a little slow, but otherwise very fun.
