Has anyone gone tubing in the Perkiomen Creek? Wondering where would be the best place to start/end. I live in Collegeville.

I've gone kayacking down the Perkiomen from Central Perkiomen Valley Park down to Hoy Park. I would think for tubing the best place would be between the Collegeville bridge area and Hoy Park. Any further upstream gets a little shallow in some areas, and tubing around the Peco substation could be a little rough as there are a couple small dams.

The only place you might need to portage is around the Arcola Rd. bridge if it hasn't rained in awhile.

Went tubing this weekend on the Perkiomen and had a great time. The water was a little slow but it was fun! The water is mostly shallow 1-2 feet deep but gets deeper after the bridge for Arcloa Rd.

We start up near Green Lane and tube down to Spring Mount. Its empty most of the time so we can do a little "nudin-tubin." Shallow water so you don't move too fast.

Good luck with that. My neighbor saw fresh water sharks in the Perk last time he went fishing near Plank Rd. I aint going near that water.

OMG you have seen them too!
I remember tubing somewhere on the perkiomen creek, about 10 years ago in my youth, and I saw stingray looking animals. No one believed me. I guess i'm not going crazy after all.
