Park & Play Tubing

We offer tubing at our privately owned riverside location. Customers check in at our Mountain Top location then take a casual stroll down to the river where you can play and sunbathe all day while tubing Harpers Ferry style.  You can splash in your tube and float and play in the beautiful waters of the Potomac River.  You can tube all day if you'd like and when all your play time on the water gets your stomach growling for something tasty, you can hop aboard one of our ATV's for a ride in style and comfort back up to the top of the mountain for just a small fee of $5 for an all day  UP shuttle pass. ATVs provide transportation for guests and gear.  This is the latest in river conveniences, exclusive to Harpers Ferry Adventure Center.

Once you purchased your lunch or snacks and your belly is satisfied you can get back on the water and spend the rest of the day soaking up the sun. When you are ready to leave you can catch the ATV shuttle back to the top, but if you prefer to enjoy a walk after your trip, that of course, is fine with us and you can enjoy the gorgeous views and scenic atmosphere.
