Float with Elkhorn Outfitters

Elkhorn River Tubing trips last 4-6 hours depending on river conditions. We provide you with a tube, a personal flotation device (life jacket), & hardware to connect your tubes together.

Refunds are only given for cancellations  if WE need to cancel due to weather or river related.

We ask all floaters to arrive 15 mins before your scheduled time to make sure we have all waivers signed.  There will be a $5 per car parking fee.

The river is very low this time of the year. Because of that we will have to float from Maple street (where you park) to Graske Park off of Dodge. We will bus you back to your car.

Please read this waiver carefully so you are aware that if you are injured or drown, we are not liable.  You are floating at your own risk.

Minors under the age of 19 will need to have a minor release form signed & the same guardian/parent on float trip.

Which stretch of the river do we use

If the river is at normal depth and flow, we drop in at Elkhorn Crossing and take out at a private beach at Elkhorn Shores.  If the river is low and slow, we will start at the beach and take out at Graske.  We want our guests to enjoy their float with as little work as possible.  When the river is low, we use a shorter distance to allow for all floaters to relax, stop and hang out on sand bars, and not feel rushed.  We do not give refunds for shorter float times.
