This is a great section for beginners and young paddlers or tubers to learn. The current is normally slow and allows you to paddle back up stream for an extra lap or two without committing to the longer 6-mile trip.
ADDITIONAL TUBING INFORMATION
Our River Road livery property is private property and not a public access. The adjacent properties down river from Conner Street in downtown Noblesville are also private properties. We do not allow privately owned tubes on our River Tube trips. We do not allow mixed parties of rented tubes and private tubes to land at our River Road property. Private tubes will be turned away, and trespassing laws will be strictly enforced.
Our River Tubes are 44” outer diameter and have a backrest and cupholder. Some, but not all, have covers. Covers are subject to availability at the time of departure and cannot be reserved. On extremely busy days, we may run some of our river tubes that do not have a backrest. All tubes are subject to availability at the time of departure, and cannot be reserved as backrest or non-backrest.
Our Cooler Tubes hold coolers up to 55 quart. They are a raft, and your cooler rides in the cooler tube. Cooler tubes are for coolers and personal gear only, and cannot be used for a person to float in. It is illegal for a person to float in a cooler tube.
Our Tube Straps are a 5’ nylon strap with a snap buckle. They are used to tie your river tubes and cooler tubes together. You rent these when you reserve your tubes. We do not allow rope/twine or other strap methods to be used on our tubes.
Note: No private tubes or cooler tubes allowed, with the exception of floating coolers that can be transported on the shuttle in the same manner as your normal cooler. Coolers must be no larger than 55 quart. No glass is allowed.
