Best Time to Tube

When do we show up?

Are you about to walk out the door? Call ahead for today's schedule  (828)749-9100
As of June 1, 2010: For your child's safety, only children over 40 inches tall will be allowed to tube.

Here's how to figure the daily schedule


The one constant with Duke Power's release schedule is change. The schedule for the release of water is posted online in three day blocks. The two resources are The Green River Flows Page and Scheduled Release page from Duke Power.  Duke's page gives a three day schedule under the Tuxedo section.  The Flows page gives next day info, three day schedule, and lake level info.

We know when the water is coming over the dam...but when can we tube?

The most common scheduled release through the summer months is:
100% from 7:00am to 12:00n
When this is the case our schedule is as follows:
 
#1  1hr  (1.5miles)  11:00am - 4:00pm
 
#2  2hr  (3miles)     12:00n  - 3:00pm
 
#3  3hr  (4.5miles)  11:00am - 2:00pm
 
#4  4hr  (6miles)     11:00am - 1:00pm
 
You can "START" any ride between the above posted times.  You must be on the water before the cut off time. 
 
Another common summer time release is:
 
100% from 12:00m to 11:59pm
In this case our schedule is as follows:
 
#1  1hr  (1.5miles)  11:00am - 4:00pm
 
#2  2hr  (3 miles)  11:00am - 4:00pm
 
#3  3hr  (4.5miles)  11:00am - 2:00pm
 
#4  4hr  (6 miles)  11:00am - 1:00pm
 
You can "START" any ride between the above posted times.  You must be on the water before the cut off time.
 
If the schedule reads "Shutdown"
 
We do offer a low water ride for a reduced rate.  It is our regular #1 ride but it averages 2 hours when the dam is shutdown.
 
If the schedule reads any other way, please contact us for information on our schedule.
