If you are in Helen, GA make sure you take a trip down the river. You take a short bus ride to a drop off location.....then you float down the river. We had such a great time. I recommend a waterproof camera (they sell disposbale ones in the shop) so you can take pics. Make sure you have water shoes... More

Easy ride down thee river. Try to go weekdays as weekends are crowded. The price of a short trip and a long trip are the same. Unless water is low or you are short on time take the long trip.

We took all 3 grandkids on a camping trip. An 8yr old and 2 5yr olds. Neither had been camping or tubing before so we had a blast. When a 5 yr old tells you that was fun can we do it again you know you have made an impression! The facility was clean and the staff helpful. Though the... More

$5 per person to float down a relaxing shallow river with some easy flowing rocky areas. Ties can be purchased to link tubes together which is great for couples, families, groups. There is a 1 hour float and a 2 hour floats. Nice relaxing scenery. Good for all ages. Before or after tubing the surrounding area has picnic tables, grills... More

This is a standby for family and friends. Where can you spend so little money and have so much fun? You want to spend the extra money and get the wood pole. This comes in handy when navigatin the rocks. You may also want to bring sunscreen or a hat as the sun can be overbearing at times. After that... More

Our room was on the river front. Enjoyed watching the tubers. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Everything was within walking distance.

Although the river was a little crowded and shallow, it was still a very good time for $5 per person. You can also buy a "push stick" to help you unstuck while you tube. There's an hour and a 2 hour trip, and we took the two hour trip. You float through some woods, and even float through downtown Helen,... More

I would recommend strapping younger kids to you. Get the stick. $5 and totally worth it. I did this three times on out trip. The first time, one of our kids floated waaaay ahead of us in the river. We were freaking out but we got the hang of it. Strap your kids to your tube and be prepared to... More
