RAW Camp is offering tubing trips on the Hocking River in Nelsonville to our campers.

The trip covers a placid, mile long stretch of the Hocking from Hocking Parkway to the Bike path where it intersects the river in front of Hocking College.

All campers are fitted with a life jacket and provided a sit on top float, most commonly in the form of an inflatable duck or flamingo. Trips are run by staff with watercraft experience. Before trips weather radar is checked, and our guidelines have a go or no go set based on the river gauges which can be checked at the National Weather Service website. We do not run tubing trips if the water is at or above 7 ft.
