We do recommend all floaters wear the provided life jacket or you may bring your own. By the Iowa law, people on a river tube do not have to wear a life jacket but we do recommend wearing one.

River tubers, once you are at the river, please see a Seven Oaks staff member to get your life jacket.

If you have rented a canoe or a kayak: by Iowa law, kids ages 12 and under must wear a lift jacket when in a canoe or kayak.  People ages 13 and older do not have to wear the life jacket but it must be with you in your boat.

Orange around the neck style life jackets are included with your canoe/kayak/tube rental.  You can upgrade to a 2 or 3 buckle vest when you are checking in at the office. Seat cushions can also be rented at the office.  Seat cushions and upgraded life vests can be rented onsite.  Kids under 90 lbs will automatically be given a 2 or 3 buckle life vest. Please Note: we do not have life jackets for children under 30lbs so you will need to bring your own.  We also recommend you know how to swim before being on the water.  Please understand this is not a “lazy river” at the local water park….it is a free-flowing river.
