Plan a Tubing Trip in the North Carolina Mountains

Plan a Tubing Trip at West Tubing Company

You’ll arrive at West Tubing Company and park in our lot. Should the parking area be at capacity, you can follow one of our shuttles to overflow parking at the West Preserve put-in and the shuttle will carry you back to the outpost so that you can sign in.

Come inside the outpost, sign your waiver, and pay. We accept most major credit cards. There are no restroom facilities at the put-in or along the river, so plan on using the restrooms prior to boarding the shuttle. The trip is approximately 1.5-2.5 hrs. long, please plan accordingly.

You’ll be assigned to a shuttle van. The shuttle will take you to the put-in at West Preserve, a few miles away. At the put-in, you will get your tubes and you can start your tubing adventure! You’ll then you float down Brasstown Creek to the outpost. As you near the outpost, signs will direct you to exit the creek on the right side, completing your journey.

We do have a changing room when you exit the creek. If your hungry, you can enjoy a burger or hot dog from our grill alongside the creek to add to the day! And, don’t forget to visit our gift shop and take home a memento of the day.

How Much Does it Cost?
