NOTES ON TRIP
One of the best places to go tubing anywhere in the United States is the Guadalupe River in Canyon Lake, Texas. A section of this river that is heavily tubed is called the Horseshoe. The beauty of this section of river is that when you get done, you can just walk a few blocks and start over again. A map is located below:
We will be going to Shanty Tubes at the following address:
12100 FM 306
Canyon Lake, Texas 78133
They are located right near the Horseshoe. Note that the number of life jackets is limited. If you own a life jacket, please bring it along.
