Floating

Float

How does this thing work? It’s EASY! The gates at Cool River Ranch open at 10am to all tubers on Saturday and Sunday. Once you show up you will be pointed towards the box office where you can redeem your tubing passes, camping passes, and concert tickets. If you are camping you can check in to your campsite starting on Friday at 2pm-8pm. See our Tubing and Camping page for more information on camping. Once you get your wristbands we will have a large tent and tubing staging area near the box office that tubers will wait for the shuttles. Once your turn arrives to hop on the shuttle, the shuttle will take you a few miles up river and drop you off at our river drop in location. Then, you FLOAT about 2 1/2 miles back to Cool River Ranch. The FLOAT takes about 2.5-4 hours so come prepared! Once you arrive at Cool River Ranch river exit you will be directed up the hill to the concert gates! Feel free to go back to your car and change or whatever you need to do before you come party at the concert. Easy Peazy!

Do you float the river while listening to music? No. Those two activities happen separately. You float the river in the morning or afternoon, then when you’re done tubing at Cool River Ranch, you head over to the concert to enjoy the music! We recommend you float early!
Yes, you can bring your own tube, but you will still have to pay for a floating pass. This pass gets you on the shuttle, which will drop you off upstream so you can float back down to the concert.
Of course! However, you’ll have to leave whatever you have left in your car before entering the festival grounds for the concert.
Well first of all, we love the San Marcos River and are committed to leaving it in better condition than we found it. To that end, we’ve hired professionals to clean up whatever mess is left. Also, Don’s Fish Camp does weekly clean ups of the river and will also be assisting in the cleanup pre AND post event. Together we can make this both a fun and an environmentally responsible event!
No, of course not! Tubing is first come first serve. Feel free to just come enjoy the shows!
Live music starts at 2pm!
Camping passes allow you to sleep at the venue on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night. You’ll want to stay each night so you can wake up early and hit the river to make sure you’re done floating before the music starts. You’ll want to stay every night so you can party all day and not have to worry about how you’re getting home. Check out will be Monday morning. Bottom line is, you’ll want to camp!
You should be prepared to camp outside under the stars. There won’t be electricity and for safety reasons you won’t be able to light a fire (but you shouldn’t need one to keep you warm on a Texas night in July!). There won’t be running water, but we will be providing porta potties for when nature calls. You’ll need to bring a tent, a sleeping bag, and rations to get you through the night. Parking is $30 for Friday-Monday or $20 for Saturday-Monday- cash only.
Yes, grills are allowed. Just no open fires
Of course, available to all campers 24hrs a day.
There is no specific size to each campsite. It’s first come first serve. There is plenty of room for your giant tent and all your friends!
Yes, you can park next to your tent. Parking for campers is $20.
See our site map for more RV spaces are $100 per vehicle. There are no electrical or water hookups provided.
Yes, you can bring some food and beverages including alcohol inside the campgrounds.
No. Campgrounds will close one hour after the concert ends each night and 12am on Friday and you may not exit and return after gates are locked. So be sure you bring everything you need!

Let us know if you have any other questions and we'll get them answered here!
