Tubing in Indiana

July 11, 2019

Where is the best place to go tubing in Indiana?

Tubing in Indiana is a wonderful way to spend a hot summer day. Not only will you stay cool in the water, but you’ll also be able to relax and let the current do all the work. If you’re looking for the best places to do some Indiana tubing, of course Sugar Creek, featured above, is one of the best. There are a few other spots to float in the water. Try the Tippecanoe River in Winamac or the Whitewater River near Brookville. For a manmade version, head to Indiana Beach in Monticello.

What else can I do besides tubing at Sugar Creek?

Sugar Creek has so much to offer for summer fun in the sun. In addition to tubing, you can go kayaking in Indiana, as well as canoeing along the same route on the river. There is also the campground right on the river that can turn this adventure into an overnight stay. Choose from a comfortable cabin or bring along an RV or tent for the ultimate riverfront camping experience.

Does Indiana have clean rivers?

Like many states, Indiana has worked hard over the years to clean up its rivers and keep them pollutant free. With all the hard work that’s been done, many of the state’s waterways are perfectly safe for tubing, canoeing, swimming, and other water activities. Of course if you are unsure or worried about the quality of the water, a little research on that body of water will tell you of any concerns.
