River Adventures

Enjoy the natural beauty surrounding the North Toe River by scheduling kayaking and tubing trips at Springmaid Mountain. Our self-guided trips generally last about two hours. Paddles and lifejackets are provided. Schedule a trip in advance when you book your cabin online! You may also schedule with our office when you check in. Available seasonally.


Kayaks hold one person each.
Cost is $25 per kayak


Tubers walk ½ mile up the waterfall trail and float down the relaxing river to the Springmaid swinging bridge. Tubes are available first come, first serve. A deposit is required for tube rentals.

Tubing is $6 per day and tubes must be returned to the office.

When water levels permit, other river activities include:


Our canoes transport one or two people each.

Cost is $50 per canoe


Our rafts are suitable for up to four people.

Cost is $80 per raft
