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 when available we hold tubing events throughout the summer where we provide each tuber a professional river tube and a ride to the starting point via our sister site/business called Tubing HarCo(on a hiatus.. started it for fun/share my love of tubing, but it stopped being fun due to things :-(    Also the creek floods frequently & then events have to be canceled. If things can be worked out we could have more events when conditions permit).

Check out our video of an excursion enjoyed in 2017.

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.

We have two events coming up Wednesday July 4th and Saturday July 7th(rain date of the 8th). Please RSVP to either event by messaging us on Facebook, text/call (443-585-0041) or email us. You can also contact us for any future weekend event dates you might be interested in or for large parties during the week. Further information can be found at Tubing HarCo.
