  • Best time to tube the Muskegon River?

    I always love it when West Florida plays a new team and I can learn a little about the opposing school's area. It looks cool how the river runs by your campus and I was wondering when the water warms up enough for tubing. It looks like a fun place to change up the mid-August summer heat for a week or so.

    Never. You couldn't pay me to go tubing, let alone on the Muskegon River. If you want a good time in Michigan during the summer, get an airbnb on the beach. Now that's a good way to take a load off in the mid-August summer heat.

      Well I do quite a bit of beach time so something a little different sounded fun.

        I LOVED tubing down the Muskegon back when I was a student. We usually could do it the last couple of weeks of the school year and the first month or so in the fall.
        spent one summer on campus torwards the end, we must have went a half a dozen times. We loved it
        The farther south you go the scenery is beautiful, saw a mink once, great memories on that river for sure.
        Safe travels to all the West Florida contingent heading g North.

          The great tubing days in the summer in early 90's. Staying at school in the summer - school in morning, work out with teammates and then off to the bar on river and float down river for 4 hours. Then a bus picks you up and back to campus. We would put a keg in a tube and tied all the tubes around the keg and float away. Don't get me wrong we also would go to Grand Haven and hit the beach or going to one of 1000 lakes in Michigan. A lot to do outdoors in Michigan....

            Sounds like a blast to me! I wouldn't trade my time at UWF for anything, but maybe I should have taken a summer class or two at Ferris State one summer. :)

              Well the good news is that you will not have to worry about mosquitos this weekend. Bring your sunblock and welcome to Michigan. For those of you driving from Florida you will know the moment you cross into the state by the way your car drives on our soon to be gravel roads.

                  Now would be a good time to go tubing on the Muskegon to celebrate your victory over the 'Dawgs. But, wear a snow suit and have a snowmobile tow your tube on the ice.

                      I go 2 or 3 times a summer for the past 12-15 years or so. although down stream a ways from BR, past the dams. Mid to late summer, as others have mentioned, is definitely the best time. There are some that get rolling on Memorial Day weekend but the water is usually a little chilly still then. As June cranks up the tubers do as well, I’d say third weekend in June is the start of peak season until about mid August. I’m partial to 4th of July weekend, quite the party on the water then, especially before a couple years ago when the cop patrols picked up a little. This past year we actually ran into a crew all the way from the Wash DC area on the 4th weekend.
