Yes, with hundreds of tubes and brand-new shuttle vans we can get you on the river and having fun in no time! We are blessed to have THE BEST FLOAT on all the Guadalupe! Even when the river is low, our section of the river is great for tubing as there is a good slope and a constant flow of water!
Not for tubing but it is best to have a reservation for Cabanas, In-water Covered Picnic Table rentals and Glamping, as we wouldn’t want you to get here and we don’t have any available for you. If that were to happen though, you could always still tube.
