If you have ever loved a water park lazy river, river tubing is the experience for you! These natural lazy river adventures are available throughout the country, whether it is facilitated by a local company or you find your own river. Luckily, we have three locations within driving distance of Fayetteville, North Carolina that offer impeccable river tubing experiences.
Cape Fear Adventures
Located in Lillington, check out their super lazy two miles of river floating. There is plenty of forest and wildlife to experience on this five hour trip. There is only one Class I rapid. You will also see a rock garden and a unique wild habitat. At the end of your day on the river, a shuttle will take you back to the beginning.
Please be aware that the trip duration depends on the speed of the river. They are open all week long, with the last tubes going out at 10:30am on the week days and 12:30pm in the weekends! The minimum age is three. Adults cost $24 and children cost $19. Reservations are strongly recommended.
Cape Fear River Adventures also offers canoes, kayaks, paddle boards, whitewater kayaking, and scenic rafting trips.

Another fine, lazy day on the river can be found at Endor Paddle in Sanford, North Carolina. It can take up to four hours to finish this 2.1 mile float. Their offered section of Deep River is perfect for all ages. You will experience some history as you float under two train trestles from the early 20th century and witness Native American fish traps. The Camelback bridge that signals the end of your journey was built in 1901.
Reservations are required for your float. Ages three and up. Adults cost $24, children cost $19. They are only open on the weekends from 9am to 5pm.

Along with river tubing, they offer kayaking and paddle boarding, as well as having a few camp sites available right along the river. Be sure to make a reservation, because it is required for all activities! River tubing costs $19 a person. They are open daily from 10am to 5pm.
