WHAT AND WHERE IS THIS THING?
The fourth annual Totally Tubular Tube-a-Thon is set for Saturday, June 15th, 2019 at Still Waters Campground. Campground is located at 249 Strohmeier Rd, Frankfort, KY, Still Waters Campground is located in the middle of a horseshoe bend on the beautiful Elkhorn Creek. It’s an easy five-minute walk from the put-in site to the take-out point and we will also be operating shuttles between both points. You can tube as many times as you like. Put-in and take-out will be clearly marked. Our course is along a gentle two-mile stretch of the creek with no rapids. Kid friendly, but we encourage independent swimmers only on the creek and life jackets for all ages!
Check-in starts at 10 AM! Family fun tube is from 10 AM – 1 PM. Last tube, the Twilight Tube, will be at 7 p.m. Kentucky tubing conditions are typically great this time of year. There will be signs for the Tube-a-Thon at the entrance and people there to assist with parking.
Grab a campsite or just stick around post-float for the full Tube-A-Thon Festival experience. The twilight glow float and bonfire will kick off the epic evening! Food and drinks (including beer) will be available for purchase on-site — along with the gear from various awesome brands.
