Rules & Regulations of Tubing

TUBE AT YOUR OWN RISK

Waiver

Absolutely, no customer will be allowed to participate in river trips with Saugeen Springs R.V. Park Inc without acknowledging these rules and signing a waiver. The river conditions change daily and the current can become very strong making it hard to stand in some areas. While the use of the river is at your own risk we do not recommend going down the river unless you are a comfortable swimmer.

Life Jackets

We highly recommend that each person wears a life jacket when using the river.   Each tube rental at Saugeen Springs R.V. Park includes a fitted life jacket.

Tubes & Paddles

You are welcome to bring and use your own tubes and paddles. However, we do recommend that you bring tubes that have a more durable plastic/rubber as the river is a rocky bottom and there are branches and rocks that may come into contact with you.  DO NOT tie your tubes together as the rope can easily get caught around branches or rocks causing you to capsize or get caught up amongst the banks.  We suggest holding hands or tube handles when in groups, especially with young children. This will allow you to free yourself from each other if the event arises.  Paddles can be very helpful in steering your tube and helping you repel from the water’s edge and protruding branches. You can purchase tubes and paddles from the camp store.

Clothing

We recommend that you wear a tight fitting shoe while on your river float.  River shoes or old running shoes work best, flip flops and crocks are not suitable.  Saugeen Springs R.V. Park carry a small selection of water shoes in the camp store, but it is best to bring your own shoes.  Swimsuits or t-shirt and shorts are recommended.  Don’t forget your sunscreen.

Keys/Eyeglasses/Jewelry

It is recommended to use a securing retainer of some type to prevent loss on the river.  We carry “Load ‘N Lock Airtight Waterproof” Pouches from Coghlans in the camp store.  Saugeen Springs R.V. Park will not be held responsible for lost or damaged articles.

Alcohol, Glass Container, Coolers, or Illegal Substances

Any customer who appears to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs will not be allowed to go on the river tubing trip.  No glass bottles on the river.   According to Provincial law, alcohol is to remain on your campsite and not to be taken down the river.

Emergency

In the event of an emergency please call our office at 519-369-5136 immediately after dialing 911.
