Cost was important to our group of teenaged cousins and my husband and me. Parking was $20 but that $20 was deducted from the price of our tickets- so in the end parking was free for our 2 vehicles and 8 people. We bought the sticks for pushing out of low water areas...well-worth it. Though the water was low and... More

we went Sept 18 the water could have been an inch higher so go May thru Aug. 22 dollars for two people and a stick, yes a stick for 5 dollars but well worth it and we gave it to people going after us so we felt good about that

This is the best thing to do in summer! It takes about 2 hours and slowly slowly you go down to the river. I like the fact that it's dog friendly, but 5$ for for a stick it's to much.

Great fun. The river is a bit low, so sometimes it's not tubing, it's walking while holding a tube. Get a stick for $5! Or bring one from home. 5 people with 1 stick was $48 with tax. The kids can't wait to go back, it will be even more fun with more water next year.

Drove an hour and a half on vacation to spend the day on the chattahoochee to discover they are closed on a Thursday at noon. TripAdvisor list they are open from 9-6. Waste of time and very upset children. Maybe the hours should be edited. VERY DISAPPOINTED!

Nice way to spend the day on the river. If the water is low you will get stuck on some rocks and have to push your way out. Invest into a stick!!!!!!! you will thank me later

Visited here the later part of July. If you are considering a trip to Helen and tubing, I would encourage you to take the shorter route as the water is deeper and moves better. We have been 2x and both times had a difficult time maneuvering through the first portion on the longer route. Water appears to be more shallow... More

$8.00 to float down the river- can't beat it. Wear old clothes or your swim suit, water shoes or some kind of shoes that can get wet are highly recommended. Staff is friendly and floating down the river was so fun adn relaxing! I'm in my 60's and enjoyed it- second time I've been.

My family and I have been coming to tube the Chattahoochee River for the last 3 years. This year I think that they went up a dollar or two on the price but it is still a great value. The water was down so they recommended that we do the shorter float instead of the long one. You would have... More
