The Omaha Metro's Largest Tubing and Private Camping Facility
Tubing & Adventures is Omaha's first and largest tubing outfitter located on the Elkhorn River in Omaha, Nebraska. Tubing & Adventures, T&A for short, provides a fun day on the river while focusing on safety and keeping the river as clean as possible. We proudly own a 54 acre property in Sarpy County and offer multiple services that focus around camping and river activities.
T&A currently offers several different river activities which include tubing and kayaking. We have also teamed up with The Neighborhood Offshore to add Stand Up Paddleboards and Yoga Classes to our services. As for camping, we currently have several different tent camping options, and we are working on developing RV sites. We currently only have primitive RV camping, but we are designing our infrastructure to hopefully be constructed in the near future. Day Passes are available to come visit us and spend the day on the property.
The River Adventures
The river adventures include tubing and kayaking down a 6 mile float of the Elkhorn River. This stretch of the river is a straight float without any dangerous curves that collect debris. You will float past huge dirt cliffs along with some beautiful rock walls. Tiny little cabins are intermixed along with million dollar homes, and you may observe many varieties of wildlife. The river adventures give you all the proper equipment and knowledge to safely travel down the river. We have several buses to transport you upstream to the drop-off location and begin your adventure. If the river conditions are right, then we will have a privately owned sandbar along the float where you can stop, hang out, listen to music, and play some fun games before continuing on with your float. At the end of your float, we own the nicest beach on the river where we will have games set up for you to continue the fun.
The Camping Adventures
Our privately owned 54 acre property, called T&A Crossing, has plenty of room for parking, tent camping, RV camping, etc. T&A Crossing offers several different camping options, which includes showers, restrooms, rinse-off areas, storm shelter, and a small convenient store. There are 2 stocked ponds available to fish for our guests, and there are plenty of fish in the river as well. As we grow, we will be adding more amenities to help make your experience even better.
Safety is our number one priority. We go above and beyond when it comes to safety. We provide the required life jackets for your float, but we also give a safety speech before you begin to help you understand the possible dangers of floating on the river. We work closely with the NRD and the Waterloo Fire & Rescue to make sure river conditions are suitable. If there is an emergency, Tubing & Adventures owns an airboat that can quickly get to you and assist with any issues that may arise. All T&A tubes and kayaks have an emergency number listed on them, so just give us a call if you have an issue on the river, and we will do what we can to help out. We also follow all DOT regulations with our buses to make sure they are inspected and in safe working order.
Whether you want to float the river on a tube, get a good workout in on a kayak, or perhaps spend the weekend camping in a beautiful spot along the edge of the river with a bonfire, Tubing & Adventures is the perfect solution. It is ideal for birthday parties, bachelor/bachelorette parties, family reunions, company outings, a Boy Scout or Girl Scout river event, or just a group of friends that want to get together for a fun day. We have groups as large as 120 people and as small as 1 person from ages 8 all the way up to 80. Many of our guests are from the Omaha area, however we do get a lot of guests from out of town, including guests from Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, South Dakota, and all over Nebraska.
