Farmington River Tubing YAY!!!

Price:$20/person. CASH ONLY!!!

We will go down the river then hop on the bus which will take us back to the place. After tubing let's have a light picnic so please bring some snacks, fruit, veggie platter etc.  They have a picnic area but please bring a blanket or chair. I am going to call them before the event to ensure the river conditions are good. In case of rain the meet-up will be postponed.

 

Farmington River Tubing will put you and your friends in our specially designed river tubes for a 2.5 mile ride down the wild and scenic Farmington. Traveling over three sets of rapids, you'll experience a thrill as you splash through the white water.

Wear bathing suits or shorts; or whatever you are comfortable swimming in. It's also a good idea to wear something on your feet: Sneakers, Teva's, Leave all unnecessary items that you don't want to lose, at home(eyeglasses, watches, rings, favorite hats, and jewelry are commonly lost during tubing.)

    Ok guys, I called the place and the river is looking good. The water temp is 60 degrees. There's a slight chance for summer showers. You can check out the hourly weather on their website. I'll keep on eye on the weather for the next few hours though. So please make your decision based on the facts above! Thank you!

      Hi Janet! I am going to call the place at 10 am and ask about the river conditions/weather. There's only a 30% chance for rain in New Hartford.

    Is there any specific dress code to go tubing? Is just plain shorts and a t-shirt ok?

    June 25, 2013

    • Jason

      Oh. I just read the paragraph below and it answered my question.

      2 · June 25, 2013

  • Donna W

    Zsuzsanna, can I also bring my kids 11 and 13? I brought my daughter with WCOA last year...

    June 24, 2013

    • Donna W

      Thanks for the info! They are 11 and 13 and may bring them both also.

      1 · June 24, 2013

    • Zsuzsanna

      Sure, Eric!

      June 25, 2013

  • Sharon W.

    Sorry I have to back out. I pushed too hard at the gym and hurt my knee. A lazy river is probably a safer option at the moment! ;)

    June 23, 2013

    • Zsuzsanna

      Sorry to hear that. Feel better!

      June 23, 2013

    I would like to remind everyone that the water will be very cold this time of year. I plan on purchasing an inexpensive wet suit. I will search for a place to buy one and post the link.

    1 · June 23, 2013

  • Bruce

    Looks like any sporting goods store. I checked out Walmart. The prices range from $40-$70/100 dollars. Not sure if there are any other cheap places. Walmart might be best.

    June 23, 2013

  • Donna W

    Hi Zsuzsanna will you be opening to more guests? I'm still on the wait list!

    June 22, 2013

    • Zsuzsanna

      Hi Donna! I just opened up the RSVPs. I can 't add you cause my application doesn't work at this moment...So glad it's a nice turn out! :)

  • Christina H

    Depends on the date! Question - are there some sort of lockers to put your car keys in? Do you park there, do the ride, then walk back? Or is there a shuttle? Been meaning to do this for years!

    April 12, 2013

  • Sharon W.

    Been wanting to do this for a long time. I'm in, unless I have a scheduling conflict.
