Kick back, relax, and enjoy a lazy river trip down the scenic Monocacy River! This is the perfect event to connect with friends, team build with co-workers, celebrate birthdays, bachelor/bachelorette parties and much more. Along the course, enjoy viewing the wildlife (bald eagles are a regular sight!) and going with the flow of the current. At any time you can hop out and go for a swim to cool off!
Start by meeting the River Island staff at the Monocacy Boat Ramp located on Park Mills Rd. in Adamstown, MD. This convenient location is just 30 miles from Baltimore and DC and just a 10 minute drive from Frederick. We provide everything you need (life vests, tubes and a ride in our party bus) so that all you have to do is float- It doesn’t get easier than this! All of our tubes come standard with a headrest and cupholder so you are comfortable the whole way down.
Your group can choose to float alone or be accompanied by our experienced river floater for an additional fee. Either way, this 2 to 3 hour trip will not disappoint!
From Dickerson Road (Route 28) head north on Park Mills Road. The entrance to the boat ramp and parking lot are located on the northwest side of Park Mills Road under the bridge.
From the Washington, D.C. area take I-270 north toward Rockville and exit at Route 28 west toward Frederick County. Approximately one mile after crossing the Frederick County line you will see the main parking area marked before reaching the Monocacy River Bridge.
