    Excellent Pet Friendly Adventure!

    We took our water lovin’ lab and she loved it!! The water was a bit chilly but that didn’t stop her from swimming and riding the tubes with us. We were encouraged to get a tether and her own float. In the future we will forgo both just because when she wasn’t swimming on her own she was in one of our floats and was not comfortable in her own tube. Over all I give it a 5/5 on pet friendliness! Definitely will be back!

    So much fun!

    My dog did not particularly like the tube so he ended up riding down the river with us. But he is small so it tossed him around alot. He had lots of fun though!

    Can't wait to float with them again!

    We tubed with our pup at their Main Tubing Outpost - we'll be back again next season! They provide dog tubes and have tethers for a refundable fee of $2 to tie your tube to theirs. Awesome afternoon. Great facilities.

    Stop at the Burger Master up the street after too! They have treats for you and your pup.

    Great activity to bring your dog!

    We had a wonderful trip down the river. All the staff were very friendly and accommodating for our fur baby. Would highly recommend.
