Cool River has tubes with bottoms in them. Since the Chattahoochie River is a trout river, the temperature of the river never rises above 75 degrees. If one tubes from the upper facility at alternate 75 highway, ones bottom can become quite chilly and the tubes with bottoms are an asset. Both the upper and lower facilities have excellent parking,... More

NIce trip tubing the river after the labor day rush. We had it all to ourselves and one other couple. Water was a cool 60ish but enjoyable. Make sure to do as they say and Shoot the Houch!

This was the first time my family and I went tubing and it was great fun. We took the short trip and enjoyed ourselves completely. This was also an incredible value price wise. They had a nice picnic area by the river where we ate our lunch and watched other tubers enjoy themselves. The only complaint about the whole experience... More

There are several tubing places in Helen but this is by far the best! They have a great system for getting you on the water quickly. You can take your time and make a day of it.

The price is right for this lazy river tubing attraction set in the quaint town of Helen, GA. As a party of 4, we arrived at 2pm, bought our tickets and push stick rentals (A must) and was picking out our tubes all within 20 minutes. We had to wait in the scorching sun for 4 buses before we could... More

This tube ride down the river was both relaxing and exciting. The people that run the tubing are outstanding. The bus driver, the people in the store selling the tickets and sticks. Yes, be sure to buy a stick...you will need it. Also, you will want to have water shoes, which you can also buy at the store. We had... More

This is the third time my parents and I have floated down the river. Every time has been great. Staff is friendly. The water is cool and a refreshing break from the summer heat. If you go and the water lever in the river is low will mean you have to push off the rocks so get a stick from... More

We went with a group of about 35 youth and it was a fun afternoon. The water was low and I was told that when the water is up things are a lot more fun. However, we had sticks to push off the rocks and the water was deep in some places. The take-out spot was well manned with plenty... More
