What better way to start off your kayak or canoe river trip than viewing the awesome Natural Rockbridge? Our river access is directly across from the magnificent Natural Rockbridge. After launching your boat you just paddle across the river, pull your boat up on shore and take the short hike to the Natural Rockbridge. The Rockbridge is not visible from the river but it is only a short hike.

River Tubing in Hocking Hills, Ohio
Looking for something fun to do while in the Hocking Hills? Well, grab a tube and head out on the river! Tubing is arguably one of summer’s most refreshing activities. We make tubing convenient and easy. Be prepared to relax the entire day as you float leisurely downstream.
Depending on water conditions, the trip will either start at Crockett’s Run and conclude at the Canoe Livery (typically spring and earlier summer) or start at Riverside Campground and conclude at Crockett’s Run (typically late summer).
The trip is approximately 5 miles and time varies greatly depending on water level. If water conditions are high, it could take 2-3 hours. If water conditions are lower, it could take up to 5 hours. The best advice is to check our river conditions page to see what the water conditions will be during the day of your trip.
Tubing can be a strenuous activity. When choosing a tubing excursion, it is important to keep these things in mind:
- Weight limit is 200-250 pounds for a tube. You must understand if tube is dragging on river bottom you must pick it up and walk. Busted tubes are your responsibility.Anymore weight could cause the tube to burst on the river’s rocky terrain.

- You must have a closed-in shoe. Flip flops are not allowed.
