This was a really great and relaxing river tubing experience. It is dog friendly so we were able to tube down the river with our dogs on our laps and they really seemed to enjoy it! In some areas the river moves slow while other areas it moves faster and there are what we called mini rapids that you hit... More

Love coming to this place for tubing. Not our first time but for our guests it was. We took the long ride in tubes....but river was on the low side and we have now discovered that it's better to take the shorter route (water is deeper). The long route takes longer getting through the shallower water and numerous rocks to... More

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
