This time of year, I guess, the water is known to be low. This caused a few problems when kayaking the Chestatee but it was still a great day on the river.

Today my husband, 10-year-old son, and I kayaked for the first time with the help of Appalachian Outfitters. Everything went extremely smoothly. We had booked a 2pm time, but we showed up 45 minutes early, and they kindly got us ready to kayak right away. They gave us life vests, paddles, and kayaks, and a short demonstration of how to...

Whether you are a couple looking for a few hours to relax or a family with children tubing is a great way to spend a few hours! The price is right at just $6.00 to rent a tube and enjoy the river in Dahlonega! We have visited twice and the water was always clear and flowing so that we could... More

My friend and I signed up for the 2 1/2 hour kayak trip down the Chestatee River. We called for reservations but they said we didn't need them during the week, only on weekends. There were quite a few groups there but the staff was very nice and extremely helpful with getting us on our way. I would recommend getting... More

Neither of us had done anything like this before so we were both stepping out there, I am not a nature outdoor person, but I love the water. I was a little nervous because I have a huge fear of snakes an thought I might see some on my new outdoor adventure. We were given a ride to the tube... More

Visited late in the day after 5pm and had a very pleasant experience of tubing, floating down the river to cool down after a hot day of sight seeing. Would recommend to family's with younger children as a fun water based activity.

We visited on a Monday afternoon in July and practically had the river to ourselves while tubing. We had kids ages 5, 8, and 13 with us and it was no problem for any of them to go down the river. The outfitters will supply you with connecting ropes to tie your tubes together if you wish. They will also... More

We have been here a few times and we really enjoy it. I don't recommend it on a busy holiday weekend bc the river tends to be packed with tubers and kayakers. Great thing to do with family or on a date.

My husband like to canoe the Chestatee River in Dahlonega. We rent the canoe from Appalachian Outfitters & they make it easy. The employees are knowledgeable & friendly. Even though it was Father's Day, one of their busiest days of the year, they still got us on the river in no time & purposely spaced the launch so that we... More

Our family of four had a fantastic time tubing in Dahlonega, GA. Appalachian Outfitters staff was very helpful, friendly, and provided excellent service. You can float down the river several times for the bargain price of $6 a tube per person. We'll definitely be back!
