This was a fun way to spend a Saturday, and prepare to get wet! The crew there is friendly, just ask questions if you aren't sure what to expect. They will answer and help. The process is straightforward: hop on a bus, get your tube,...More

This is so much fun. Being that I live here usually do it 3-4 times in summer. People that own it are awesome. Some tubes have a place for a small cooler. After rain storm is really cool water level really goes up.

Coal Tubin' Pennsylvania is a no frills, river tubing experience. We highly recommend taking an afternoon/day to visit. We bought the Groupon, which included a 2.5 hour tubing trip down the Stoney River. Unfortunately due to lack of rain, we were only able to do...More
