For general inquiries and further information, please contact us:





Since we are a Private Reservation Only Campground, reservations must be made prior to arrival

Columbus River Co. offers tube rentals and transport from Waldo's Camp! 

The Scoop:

Columbus River Co. operates out of Waldo's Camp to offer an awesome tubing experience! From Waldo's Camp, Columbus River Co. will shuttle tubers upstream, for FREE, to begin their tubing adventure. Tubing exit will be back at Waldo's Camp at the infamous blue wall! Float time is 2-3 hours, depending on the water flow and any sandbar stops. Tubing cost is $15 per person for non-campers, $10 per person for campers. Hard bottom cargo tubes are available to rent for $10 each. 


No change is available and credit cards are not accepted.

Reservation only, walk-ins will not be accepted

- the property is gated!

Please arrive 30 minutes prior to shuttle time to prepare to float the river. The shuttle will leave Waldo's Camp at the exact shuttle time, and if tubers risk missing their tube time if they are not prepared to leave on time.

No Styrofoam of any kind is allowed on the river.

Open alcohol containers are not allowed when entering and exiting the river. 

No glass containers allowed.

No plastic jello shot containers allowed.

We can provide adult lifejackets, but we DO NOT furnish kids' lifejackets. If your child needs a lifejacket, please bring one with you.
