  • How It Works
    • We don’t suggest your tie up at all, but if you do only tie up in pairs due to low water levels.

    • When you see water tumbling over the rocks simply lift your body out of your tube to avoid any minor scrapes on your bum.

    • Please put ALL of your trash in the red mesh onion bags provided for you!

    • No lifeguards on duty so float with caution

    • If you can’t swim bring a life vest for safety

    • Stay off of private property- Indicated by purple marking

    • Bring own tubes deflated because it is easier to fit on the shuttles!

      • (we have generators to fill them up at the start of the river)

    • Twine is provided. If you chose to use your own and would like to keep it untie personal rope when you see the exit (to prevent blockage)

    • If for ANY reason you lose your keys call AAAA or contact Texas State Tubes to see if they have been turned in!

    • Keep in mind this is an outdoor environment so please respect your surroundings and they will respect you

    • Keep in mind the water levels vary

    • Be respectful of other tubers
