“Sharp Rocks & Freezing Water”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

my husband and I had three near death experiences there. The water was freezing and the rocks were very sharp. We were flipped many times and had to fight the current to get back on the tubes. We also saw a snake that was a little too close for comfort. Bring a stick to get yourself out of the rocks and don't forget the sunscreen. OH, please wear shoes!...

“Beautiful river”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

The Chattahoochee River has changed over the years - and for the better. The river was very clean and the banks are well kept.

“So Much Fun!”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

It's amazing how Helen makes the Chattahoochee River an attraction. You can tube and even play in the water. My family mostly loves to tube, we even have sometime to play and swim in the river. Overall, this is a fun attraction.

“Tubing!”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

My grandparents live an hour away from Helen. Every summer my sister & I come to visit and we tube down the river. It's gorgeous and a lot of fun! Just be careful to go when there is a good amount of water flowing.
