River Tubs — Available only at Foothills

Enjoy a half-day floating down the Yadkin River in our RIVER TUBS. Our RIVER TUBS are extremely sturdy and safe for ALL ages. They are 2 feet deep and either 6 feet or 8 feet in diameter, which means they are perfect for groups of up to 8 people. You can even bring your pet along! Pack a picnic lunch and beverages to bring along in the RIVER TUB — there is plenty of room.

The price of this unique adventure includes RIVER TUB rental, 2 oars, 2 coolers (bring your ice), life jackets for everyone in your group. Also included is FREE Shuttle service with advanced reservations (minimum of 48 hours before your scheduled trip). There will be a charge for Shuttle service for groups without a reservation.

River trips start in either Ferguson or in Wilkesboro and will take approximately 2.5 – 5.5 hours. At the end of your trip, we will pick you up at a designated area and transport you back to your car.

If there’s a better way to spend a relaxing summer day in North Carolina, we can’t think of it.


We offer 2 runs to choose from. See rates page for details.
