Tube The Brazos River

Tubing Near Dallas and Fort Worth

The Brazos river is available for tubing, kayaking, and canoeing.

The Brazos is generally a slow moving, "flatwater" river. This means there are very few rapids if any in normal conditions. There are many sandbars in some areas.

The water is very good here, but most sections dependent on water released from Lake Granbury. Therefore the river will often become very low (and slow) in late summer.

There are many road crossings on the Brazos, so that DIY trips are very possible here. The prettiest sections are nearest to Possum Kingdom lake, but overall the river is very scenic.

Water sports are a great way to relax on Texas rivers. But be courteous of land owners and the real estate around the water. Take your cans with you. Kayak, canoe, rafting, fishing boat, or tube ... help keep it clean.
