River Tubing

The #1 Question we get asked... "How does it work?"

We have 2 Tubing runs that we recommend while you are staying at our Park.  Maps are available in the Office.   


SHORT RUN - about 45 mins*

You will take your vehicle with tubes and family members out of the campground to the "Red Iron Bridge" and park there. You will float from there down river into our campground.  You will need to walk, bike or find a friend to retrieve your vehicle.  If you want to continue tubing then move your vehicle directly to the "Concrete Bridge" and follow instructions below.

LONG RUN - about 2 hours*

One driver will take your vehicle out of the campground and park it at the "Concrete Bridge".  You will then either walk, bike or get a ride from a friend back into the campground.  Gather up your family and tubes and head to the swimming hole where you will enter the river.  The river will meander for about 2 hours and take you down to where your vehicle is parked.

* Tubing Times will vary according to the water levels in the river.

Tubing the Saugeen River is a fun activity that the whole family can enjoy together! 


Daily Rentals from 9:30 a.m. - 7 p.m.
