It's a fact, late Aug the water is low. (Note, a large number of low ratings are from folks that tube when the water is low.) The staff warned about the water level and strongly encouraged folks buy or have a stick because they warned you would get stuck. Warning, thus is not the time for big (heavy) guys to... More

We went on a Sunday after school was in, it was still pretty crowded, but most people on the river were very nice so it wasn't bad being bumped into. Lots of families, kids and even some grandparents. We had a good time, though the river is low so you can get stuck here and there. We bought a few... More

This was worth the money. It was a lot of work because the water was low. Lots of rocks to get caught on, etc. It was still fun.

What can be said about Cool River Tubing in Helen, Ga? They have the tubing operation well planned out. We come to Helen once a year specifically to “tube the hooch”. Prices have gone up over last year so a family of four can expect to drop ~$50 for the all-day multiple run experience. There is a short and long... More

If you want to go on the slides ask the lady you buy tickets with. The river is beautiful. I recommend getting a stick the water can be very shallow. The falls are fun! Cool River is definitely cool!!!

We had a lot of fun. River was a bit low and it was very very crowded. Cool river tubing was friendly, efficient and a good value. Definitely would go again.

We originally went to the tubing company down around the corner from cool river tubing, and wasn't impressed at all. They were only selling the three hour tour, so we went to Cool River tubing. Yes it was three dollars more expensive per person but completely worth it! They offer different tours. Three hours and the hour n half. That... More

The river was way too low. They should not have been sending people on the two hour float trip. Myself, and the three others with me, where constantly getting stuck on the river bottom as it was only ankle deep. You had to get out of the tube almost every ten feet to drag it to a little deeper water... More

We found the staff very helpful. Price is very reasonable. We did the shorter ride which was about hour and a half. We loved our time on the river and would have gone again if we had more time. We thought the water was ok and not as polluted as some have said. Definitely give this a go if you... More
