What better way is there to spend a summer day than by embodying Bruno Mars’ “The Lazy Song” and floating for hours downstream? This relaxing Mississippi river tubing run will help you do just that and bring you some of that summery leisurely lounging. Don your cutest suit and pack the perfect floatie and get ready to float free, blissfully.
The Canoe and Trail Outpost offers several different trails and day trips for the ultimate relaxing float down your choice of the scenic Bogue Chitto River or Magee's Creek.
The two rivers meet in Tylertown, Mississippi, not far from the Bogue Chitto State Park.
The Canoe and Trail Outpost's short day trip is about 4-miles of floating bliss, usually taking about two hours to complete. But if you really need to soak the stress away, you can spend the whole day on an 11, 13, or 18-mile tubing run instead.
The longer routes last about 5 to 11 hours depending on if you stop to play in the river banks along the way. Let yourself roll for hours on the slow current, taking in the fresh air and lush landscape, and you can stop at a sandbar any time for a quick picnic.
Just choose how long you want to float, grab a tube, and jump on in, the water’s fine!
Of course, if you only want to go downstream for a couple of hours, the surrounding parks offer their own nature escapes worth exploring.
Rental rates vary depending on the length of your trip, with the day trip tube going for $10, while kayaks and canoes run anywhere between $30 and $60.
If you want to rough it out for camping, primitive campsites are $6, while the cozy cabin is $100.
Remember to gear up with sunscreen, a towel, and a garbage bag for any trash you may make from food. The ultimate lazy summer day is waiting for you at Canoe and Trail Outpost!
