No summer vacation in Vermont is complete without a trip to Tweed River Tubing. Situated on the White River in Stockbridge, VT, this tube rental company is perfect for those who want to beat the heat. Cars with Massachusetts and Connecticut license plates come in droves to spend the day floating down the river, with lush forests and looming mountain peaks as a backdrop. Here’s why an adventure with Tweed River Tubing should be on your Vermont to-do list.
How to Experience Tweed River Tubing
About the Owner
Chad Merriss grew up tubing on the White River. He had dreamt about running a tubing company for years, and when he was told that Vermont Tubing Company was closing, he decided to make that dream a reality. Vermont Tubing didn’t shut its doors after all, but Merriss still went forward with his plan and established Tweed River Tubing in the summer of 2011. The two companies have been coexisting peacefully ever since.
Today, Tweed River Tubing is a Stockbridge hot spot where visitors and locals come to drift lazily down the river. On the hottest days, Tweed River sells more than 100 tubes. Merriss even accompanies guests as a special tour guide if he’s heading out for an end-of-the-day sweep of the river.
Tips For Your Trip
Located at the junction of Route 100 and 107, Tweed River offers the best tubes in Vermont as well as the most fun stretch of river. They even provide life jackets, paddles, and a free shuttle back to the start point. Below are a few tips to ensure that your day on the water goes smoothly.
- Upon arrival, park your car in the field out back and drive slowly. Be sure to watch for children and pets!
- You’ll need to sign a waiver stating that you are responsible for yourself and your belongings. To save time, consider downloading a printable PDF of the waiver beforehand and bringing it with you.
- We highly recommend wearing strappy sandals, water shoes, or another form of footwear that is secured to your feet. Flip flops may get lost!
- Refrain from bringing any glass bottles or containers as they can damage tubes and pollute the river.
