The river walk runs along the entire section and you can walk back up and run as many times as you’d like. There are multiple town parks, 3 whitewater features and free riverside hot springs all within 1/2 a mile. Our favorite float for walking is from Cotton’s Hole Park down to Centennial Park.
If you have 2 cars or someone that will drop you off and pick you up, the float can be as long as 2 miles. Our favorite float for driving is from River Center Park down to Town Hall or even as far as Yamaguchi Park

- You get the best river tubes on the planet. We helped our raft manufacturer design and build the perfect river tube for floating on the river in Pagosa. These aren’t pool toys, they are built with commercial raft quality materials so you don’t have to worry about your tube going flat.
- We had double tubes custom built so your younger kiddos can float with you.
- Location. We are just across the river from the hot springs resort, right in the middle of the best section of river to tube, 100 yards from the free “hippy dip” hot springs and directly across main street from Town Park.
- Restrooms, changing rooms, lockers, and a well stocked retail store for all your tubing trip needs are available at our location.
What the River Flow Means For Tubing
The River Gauge in Pagosa gives flow in CFS – cubic feet per seconds. River levels can fluctuate daily based on snow melt and rainfall.
- 30-90 = low: stay in the deepest current, lots of rocks to dodge
- 90-180 = medium: our favorite tubing level
- 180-300 = high: rowdy fun for adventure seekers, you’re gonna flip!
- 300’s and up = Rafting!
