Tubing in Harford County, MD

July 11, 2017 - Susquehanna State Park (Deer Creek)

In 2011 we found the joys of river tubing locally and started this blog. From 2011 til present we have tubed numerous spots within a 30 to 45 mile radius of Baltimore.

A few years ago we heard about a cool new tubing spot and checked it out. You float on a creek called Deer Creek starting in Darlington, MD and ending in Susquehanna State Park. It's a great place for tubing we are happy to tell you about! Also, let you know we offer tube rentals and a ride to the start via our sister site/business called Tubing HarCo.

Rather then describe how cool this tubing spot is we've created a quick video for you to watch.

Quick Facts

  • Tubing duration: Varies based on rainfall. If the river is low 2 hours & more. Otherwise less then 2 hours.
  • Depth of water: Generally 1 to 4 feet yet depends on rainfall. Avoid during heavy rain; dangerous!!!
  • Rapids percentage: 40% of trail has small fun rapids
  • Lazy river percentage: 60% of the trail provides a nice lazy river experience
  • Water temps: Feels close to air temperature; generally not cold in season
  • Hurt butt on rocks: No doubt using any store bought tube vs. using a river tube with a cover like the ones we provide.

If you want to enjoy a fun float down Deer Creek free from getting your butt banged on the rocks and a ride to the start point message us on Facebook, text/call us at 443-585-0041 or send an email. We hold tubing events during the weekends and during the week for large groups. Reservations are required so please contact us to reserve your spot and or to discuss.

More info including frequently asked questions can be found on our sister site Tubing HarCo.

Check the water level/depth before tubing here. If it's too shallow(under a foot) or too deep (above 2.5) our events are canceled.
