I wish it could stay as clean and clear all the way through Atlanta. Riverfront hotels are fun to throw a ball into the water for your dog while you sit in comfort on your patio out of the rain!

What can I say as the beauty of the river speaks for itself. There are many hotels, restaurants and bars with a view of the river. Also, great entertainment by watching the tubers.

Great river to cool off in..if you want to get the blood flowing just wade the river..the hooch will give old bones new life and the young ones a thrill..be sure to explore the upper hooch's many attractions and the natural wonders of the North Helen Mountains.

We stayed in a hotel tight on the river. It was so peaceful sitting on a swing watching the people float by on tubes.

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.

The name Chattahoochee is derived from a Muskogean word... More
