What to Bring?North Carolina Tubing in Saluda


As of May 1st, 2014: For your child's safety, only children over 42 inches tall will be allowed to tube. Wilderness cove tubing and campground river tubing 

Tubing the Lower is big fun.  Life jackets are required for children under 13 and available to anyone who needs one.  An old pair of tennis shoes is the best footwear choice.  Sandals or water shoes also work great, just make sure they fit securely.  Flip-flops are not recommended.  Our camp store keeps a small supply of water shoes on hand, prices vary.  As far as clothing goes, you should wear something you don't mind getting wet.  We've seen it all, bikinis to blue jeans.  A bathing suit works just fine.  Sunglasses are not a must have, but they do help.  Leave the high dollar pair at home and pick up an economy pair at our store.  If you are blind without your glasses, make sure you have a way to secure them.  We offer a few types of sunglasses neck cords in our store.  Another product we carry is sunscreen.  Bugs are not a big problem in the heat of the day, so bug spray is not a requirement for tubers.  We Strongly suggest that you do not take your keys into the river.  Lock- smiths are not cheap, but we end up calling them every year for a customer.   Drop your keys off at the front desk and we place them on our keyboard to await your return.
