The 10 Best Lake Tubes

This review has been updated 22 times since it was first published in June of 2016. One of these lake tubes will provide the perfect platform for you to spend the hot months floating away your worries. Coming in sizes that can accommodate up to 10 people, you can let a whole host of friends and family in on the fun, too. Some work well for drifting calmly down a lazy river while others can be used to navigate some rapids. No water-centric vacation should be without one.
