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.

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.  If you are late getting in line to leave, you will be left behind and will get less time on the river. You will also be charged a late fee. 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 that is late. Please read through all the river rules.

Recommended Items to bring:

  • Cooler with your favorite beverage
  • Lawn Chairs
  • Towels
  • Sunscreen
  • Snacks or Food
  • Camera
  • Trash Bags (you are responsible for cleaning out your tank)
