Tubing Trip-Shenandoah

  • This is our lazy, leisure, scenic float. This float starts on our property.
  • We have 2 different launch points on the property. Launch Point 1 sends you around an island, right next to the power dam.
  • You can experience a fun class 2 white water right off of the start. After that it is all lazy and leisure.
  • The great part about this float is, you can choose to go through the white water or avoid it all together.
  • Launch Point 2 is at the lower end of our property.
  • This launch point avoids the white water all together and you can meet your more adventurous party members at the end of the island and continue on together.
  • This trip takes about an hour and 20 min.
