Take a scenic ride down the river

You haven't truly experienced the area until you've gone tubing on the McLeod River - a popular recreational pastime of our locals. There is no charge to float the gorgeous McLeod River.

Set off from the access site located within Woodlands County, just off of West Mountain Road (follow the signs on Highway 43 for Mountain Road - West Access; additional signs will guide your way). From the tubing access area, your trip should take approximately 2.5 hours to the coordinated pickup point located within Whitecourt. So sit back, relax, and see what all the fuss is about.
