The St Vrain Creek provides world class tubing in the Summer months. We just might like it even more than the tubing on Boulder Creek! For easy access to the best sections start at the top of LaVern Johnson Park in town. You can take out at the end of the park or all the way at the end of town. For an extended run, start at the top of Apple Valley by the beautiful arch bridge and go all the way to the kayak park at the end of town for over a hour of relentless tubing fun!
Pro Tip: Watch out for rocks that can hit your butt when the water level is lower. Rent pro tubes from Ray’s River Rentals!
Whether you are staying here at the A-Lodge to summit Longs Peak or for the Planet Bluegrass concerts Tubing the St Vrain is a great way to cool off and soak those weary feet. Either way, climbing a 14er or dancing all night long you earn a relaxing float down this beautiful stretch of river. Our location is ideal for either of these link ups, if you are looking for somewhere to stay to attempt Longs or for Planet Bluegrass lodging our location is perfect and our suites provide all the comforts of home to ensure you have the best trip possible.
Our goal is to give you access to the best outdoor adventures that Lyons has to offer. Whether you’re climbing, fishing, skiing, cycling, hiking, or taking in the town, the A-Lodge offers instant access to all your favorite adventures and the right amenities to come home to after an exciting day off the beaten path. This is why our philosophy centers around the three A’s: Access, Adventure, Amenities.
