Water Tubing at Antietam Creek & Optional Dinner in Harpers Ferry

  • August 3, 2013 · 10:00 AM

















IMPORTANT NOTE: We got 25+ people confirmed from another meetup group going.  If you wish to join, please see paypal link below for how to reserve your spot and send yoru payment in NO LATER THAN SUNDAY, JULY 28.

Well, summer is here so that means water activities galore!  Let's go tubing on Antietam Creek!  

Antietam Creek River Tubing has been named "Best Summer Outdoor Activity" by Washingtonian Magazine. The tubing trip is 4-5 hours and we get to see mallards, blue herons, and water turtles in their natural home. Because Antietam Creek is spring-fed, the water is always refreshing, even when the air temperature breaks through the 90s.  The put-in for the trip is a quarter mile below the  famous Burnside Bridge and tubers float through part of Antietam National Battlefield — a cornerstone of our nation's history and a treasured National Park. We'll be floating through riffles and ledges of this scenic, beginner white water stream.

Meeting time: 10:00-10:15 a.m.  The meeting place is in the Harpers Ferry area (about an hour or so from DC).  I will email the detailed directions to paid attendees.

COST: $49 This is a guided tour!  We get to have someone tell us about the area and the historic sites along the way.

The cost is $49 with fees, tax, paypal etc.  The payment is NONREFUNDABLE but you can find replacement up until July 24, 2013.  The cost includes lunch, tube, shuttle pick up and drop off. Lunch consists of chicken, salad and a drink.  If you have special dietary needs, please notify me via email when you sign up.

To reserve your spot for the tubing trip, please send the $49 via paypal link below:


Optional Dinner: After the event, we can hit the town of Harpers Ferry for dinner and drinks.  A few of us are camping/overnighting in the area as well.  If you're interested in staying overnight, e-mail me.

Carpooling:  You are responsible for making arrangements for carpooling.  If you wish to carpool, make sure to post on the comment section to make arrangements with each other.  The sooner you make arrangements, the better.

Gear: bathing suit, sunscreen, ropes to tie tubes together, change of clothes, water bottle, hat.
