If you're going to run a business encouraging people to float down the Salt River daily then you need to incorporate a DAILY clean-up crew into your business model. Your patrons are filthy beyond all belief and it's disgusting to paddle the Salt River after...More

The kayaking was amazing on this river. The wild horses were plentiful and unconcerned about human "intruders." We enjoyed swimming and the scenery cannot be topped. It was a little crowded though.

Salt River Tubing is something everyone should try at least once in your life. I have made a practice of doing this at least once a year since 1995. Bring plenty of drinks as you will need to keep hydrated, and anything made with glass...More

A group of friends and myself spent the afternoon floating down the river through Salt River Tubing. The water is crystal clear and nice and chilly against the rough heat of Arizona. They allowed us to bring speakers and coolers on the tubes. There were...More

Great way to cool off and enjoy the Sonorian Desert. Water level and flow of the river depends on the amount of water being released from the dam. Fun bus runs from Memorial Day to Labor Day weekend. Tube rentals available so you don't need...More
