4th Annual Totally Tubular Tube-A-Thon

Stillwater Campground, 249 Strohmeier Rd
Frankfort, KY 40601 United States
+ Google Map

This year we’re excited to be partnering with Kentucky For Kentucky, to host the 4th Annual Totally Tubular Tube-a-thon! The event goes down on June 15th and takes place on the scenic Elkhorn Creek. Meet us at the Still Water Campground near Frankfort for a day of fun on the water. The campground is perfectly situated along a horseshoe bend in the creek, allowing for lap after lap of awesome tubing action along a beautiful, mellow section of the Elkhorn. We’ll tube from 10 A.M until dark, and also have food and drink available for purchase at the campground —along with several awesome exhibitors and sponsors! No tube? No problem! Choose the festival pass + tube option when you register to reserve your very own tube (yours to keep!) or choose the festival pass only option and bring your own! Simply choose from the options when you register for the event, sign the waiver at the end, and you’re all set! Don’t forget to bring any essentials you might need for the Totally Tubular Tube-a-Thon—a personal flotation device (mandatory), sunscreen, towel, sunnies, drinking water, camping gear if you’re staying the night—and be prepared to have the time of your life!
