New, Larger Parking Lot! Lions Club Tube Rental and River Shuttle Service
Lions Club Tube Rental is located in the Rec Hall at San Marcos City Park. The float lasts about an hour and ends at Rio Vista Park. Play around for a while or shoot the falls and then take the shuttle back to the beginning. Rentals are good for all day activities.
We are open weekends beginning in May and seven days a week all summer - Memorial Day through Labor Day. Hours of operation are 10:00am to 7:00pm. Our last tube rental is at 5:30 pm and last pick up at Rio Vista Park is at 6:30pm.
Come by to rent a tube, air up your own, get a ride back on a shuttle, rent a life vest for your little ones or pick up refreshments and river necessities you may have forgotten.
*Unless weather or river conditions forces closure.
Search "San Marcos City Park" in Google maps and it will take you right to us!
Due to construction on Aquarena Springs Dr., the Tube Rental is not always accessible from that direction.
Take exit #205 on IH-35 west onto HWY 80 (Hopkins St.). Turn right on Charles Austin Dr. then left on Jowers St. directly behind Strahan Coliseum. Follow the signs to City Park.

The tube rental and river shuttle service is a fund raising project of the San Marcos Lions Club. Proceeds from this and other projects allow the Lions Club to support many charities and educational opportunities for students.
