“Fun time on the rapids”
Reviewed August 31, 2014

I didn't know beforehand that this was only the UPPER section of the little river, but still glad we went. Cowboy tubing drops you off seemingly farther up than the other tubing companies (aka a longer ride) and then you get to go down about 4 rapids and a few lazy river sections until the end. We ran it 3 times and had a fun time. I got nervous with all the rocks sticking out of the water, and got stuck a few times, but after doing it you get the hang of it. I would definitely tube this river again. The price is good and the tubes worked well (note the tubes have no bottoms, from what I heard only river rat does). You can go inside and use their bathrooms to change. We were also able to leave the facility, get lunch, and come back for more tubing.

“Great fun for everyone! ”
Reviewed August 30, 2014 via mobile

Went tubing with the family at Cowboy Tubing and it was a lot of fun for everyone. The staff was great very helpful and friendly, their bathroom were super clean. You rent the tube at their location and they drive you to the starting point.
We went through a few rapids which were so much fun. The kids and non-swimmers in our group enjoy it!
Would defiantly return here next time we come to TN.

“Afternoon Fun”
Reviewed August 27, 2014

The location was great for tubing. All places take you up to the park boundary and end at the tubing location. Cowboy Tubin' was at the perfect spot where you get to go through all the fun parts without being stuck in the slow part of the river longer than you needed to be. Price was great, and everyone was friendly. Definitely make sure to stop at the rope swing.

“Great people, great times”
Reviewed August 26, 2014

From the time our group walked in the door till the time we returned our tubes the people working Cowboy Tubing were awesome. Everyone was so courteous and nice to us we almost did not know what to do.

The river was perfect and the water very refreshing. An older gentlemen provided us some entertainment in the way of story telling on the way to the launch site. I left feeling that we all had a blast and had the privilege of meeting some of the nicest people our beautiful country has to offer.

Will gladly come back and pay them a visit and bring some more visiting friends.

“inexpensive fun!”
Reviewed August 22, 2014

Place was clean, staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Different size tubes for various sized people. The van took you a couple miles down the road and dropped you off with some instructions about staying to the left in the rapids, looking for the rope swing, and what to do if stuck. what everyone failed to mention was that the water was FREEZING!!!!! (and i failed to rely on my common sense to figure this out on my own prior to entering the water.....it was, afterall, a mountain river, NOT a lazy river!!!!) that aside, this adventure was a blast!! there were nice, easy slow points in the river....and then there were the rapids.....quick, wild, fun points! everyone in our party enjoyed this attraction, even though one of us was flipped off our tubes in one of the rapids. it took about 1.5 hours to complete the course. you were able to run through as many times as you'd like for the price of $9 for the entire day. what a deal! i would definitely recommend water shoes though, as there are times your tube gets caught up on the rocks and you need to push off against them to get unstuck and they can get a little sharp at times. other than that, SUPER!!
