Somerset, Wisconsin - "Inner Tubing Capital" of the World.

Somerset is a village in St. Croix County, Wisconsin, along the Apple River. The village was named by General Samuel Harriman after his father's home of Somerset, England.

Somerset has several camping establishments along the Apple River. Outfitters in the area provide rentals and transportation for tubing on the river. Every summer concerts are held at the Somerset Amphitheater.

The Apple River is ranked as one of the best rivers in America for tubing

The Apple River is a 77.5-mile-long tributary of the St. Croix River in northwestern Wisconsin. Tubing down the Apple River is sometimes referred to as a floating tailgate party or a floating Mardi Gras. It is Midwestern tradition that doesn't include the Packers, cream puffs or brats. The Apple River is different from other tubing rivers because of its sandbar halfway down the river, where revelers set up parties with food, drink and beach volleyball.
