Drive yourself to our tubing spot! Ideal for families, as the Dotsero meet-up spot is 45 minutes from Vail/Beaver Creek and 2.5 hours from downtown Denver. Available every day from 11 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.!


Heading west on I-70, take exit 133 to Dotsero, turn right at the end of the ramp and take a right on Cotton Lane. You will see Dotsero Landing on the left-hand side, pull in and park anywhere. Walk West and you will get to the river for Turtle Tubing check-in at the Turtle Bus.

You will then meet one of our friendly staff members at the river who will get you set up and ready for your float down the river to Turtle Beach.
