Enjoy something different, float down the Cedar River in a tank. The Cedar River twists and winds in a horseshoe bend fashion, nearly doubling back on itself several times. The river often cuts several miles of channel to make one mile of progress. This constant twisting can result in 3-4 hours of river adventure! Please bring your own lawn chairs.

Tanks and one vehicle shuttled from the river per group included. Showerhouse included for overnight guests only (tents & primitive cabins or Campers who have already paid for the shower house use). Other guest will be subject to a $3.00 fee per person using showerhouse. Please let us know when you check in if you will need to use the showerhouse.

We have 3 time slots for putting people in the river: 10:00 AM, 11:00 AM or Noon. Please check-in at the office 30 minutes before your float time so you are ready to go on the river 15 minutes before your float time. People going out at the 10:00 AM time slot need to be back by 3 PM. The 11:00 AM time slot need to be back at 4:00 PM. People going out at the Noon time slot need to be back at 5:00 PM. If you are not back by the designated time there will be an additional charge of $50.00 per tank/tube/canoe per 30 minutes late. Please read through all the river rules.

Recommended Items to bring:

  • Cooler with your favorite beverage
  • Lawn Chairs
  • Towels
  • Sunscreen
