We rafted down the hooch 3 times The water was low, but it was still an awesome trip! Wished there were a few more swings close to the hooch in the "hotel" section, it would have been nice to sit on a swing and watch other tubers go down the hooch.

Picturesque small river. Great river for tubing and fishing. Winds through downtown Helen. Nice variety of places to stay along this river from cabins and houses to hotels.

This is a great place for tubing. Chattahoochee River runs through the middle of Alpine Helen, Georgia. During the summer months, the river is flooded with visitors taking a relaxing ride in inner tubes. There is a plenty of water activities for the whole family to enjoy at Chattahoochee River . The name Chattahoochee is derived from a Muskogean word... More

You couldn't ask for anything cleaner that the Chattahoochee River for a fun time of tubing. The pace and water levels made for excellent tubing and lots of laughing. Helping others and them helping us as needed was never an issue and added to the fun.

We came to Helen specifically for the tubing experience and we really enjoyed it. It's a great family experience and something that is great for the young and the old. I would suggest getting up early if you're going to catch a bus to the drop spot, as it can be an hour or more wait later in the day.... More

The Chattahoochee River winds all around the area of Helen, GA and is gorgeous. It is peaceful during the summer and must be spectacular in the autumn when the leaves are changing. A great place to vacation!

Well run operation and the price can't be beat--only $5 a person for the 1 hour 15 minute tube float. We had 9 folks ages 10 to 60 and all had a good time. The river was a little high so the rocks did not present much of a problem. Recommend you go on a weekday and in the morning... More
