Tubing in Ohio

Where else can I go tubing in central Ohio?

Those living in central Ohio are lucky because Columbus is located, quite literally, smack in the center of the state, making pretty much every far corner and side of the Buckeye State an easy day trip away. One of our favorite tubing trips that's an easy day trip from Columbus is up in Loudonville, Ohio. The Loudonville Canoe Livery is another opportunity to explore the banks of the Mohican River from the water. Enjoy two hours of relaxing tubing on the cheap, traversing a total of three miles along this scenic river. Our advice? Check out one of the outfitter's "moonlite float trips" when they're offered! And if you're going to check out a twilight float, you might as well pitch a tent too. Luckily, this is considered one of the most beautiful campgrounds and outdoor destinations in all of Ohio, making for the perfect summer adventure in the Buckeye State!

Another worth-the-trip tubing excursion near Columbus is in Hocking Hills. Many people opt for kayak or canoe rentals along the Hocking River, but we've got a soft spot for tubing. Hocking Hills Adventures offers up kayaks, canoes, and tubing, so there's something for everyone here. We like the ease of a floating trip down this resplendent river; there are a variety of trips available, lasting anywhere from two to five hours. The outfitter is typically open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, depending on weather and water conditions and really is an activity that belongs on your summer bucket list in the Buckeye State!
