Tubing In Vermont

July 26, 2019

Where is the best place to go tubing in Vermont?

You’ll find an abundance of places to go tubing in Vermont. If you’re up for a river adventure, you can enjoy a float down the Winooski River in Richmond and the White River in Stockbridge. In addition to Great River Outfitters, Vermont River Tubing also offers tubing adventures that will take you down a scenic 3,000-foot river.

If you prefer to escape the summer heat or crave a bit of summer during the winter, visit Jay’s Peak Resort in Jay. The indoor water park boasts a lazy river with some surprises (think: getting unexpectedly drenched).

What else can I do besides tubing at the Connecticut River?

You’ll find plenty to do on the Connecticut River in Vermont. Slip on your swimsuit for a swim in the river (swimming is permitted in the majority of the Connecticut River), or bring your fishing gear for a morning or an afternoon of fishing. Boating is another popular activity on the Connecticut River. You can find dozens of launches in Vermont.

Does Vermont have clean rivers?

Vermonters work hard to ensure their rivers are clean. The state has a Clean Water Initiative Program, which has numerous goals, including restoring the waterways. Overall, the state’s waters are relatively clean. However, according to the Department of Environmental Conservation in Vermont, nearly 15 percent of the lakes in Vermont are unusable due to current water pollution.
