Went down the river in august when the water was lower and still had a great time. Had to push thru a few areas so the push stick was worth the five dollars. What a wonderful way to spend the day with the kids an not spend a fortune.

The staff will advise you as to how long each ride should probably last depending on the water level, and sometimes when the water is lower only the shorter ride is available. I strongly suggest you get... More

One hot day we went to the Cool River Tubing Company to try our luck floating down the Chattahoochee River. We paid our $5 to rent the tube and purchased one stick for $5 between us to assist us with navigating the river. We then selected a tube and got a strap so we could tether our tubes together so...

I loved it all. It is a cheap way to have a lot of fun!! You need to make sure you go when it has rained a lot so the river is moving good.

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!
