Tubing in Helen Georgia has got to be one of the most fun activities I have ever experienced with my wife and kids. To begin with, there are 2 tubing facilities located in Helen Georgia. One is the HelenWaterPark, and Cool River Tubing. We used the HelenWaterPark since the entrance fee included tubing, plus a full day’s access to the HelenWaterPark, so I need not note that by the end of the day, we were drenched and well water logged.

There’s no better, and more family budget conscious way to spend the day beating the insane Georgia heat than by taking a float down a lazy, somewhat shallow portion of the ChattahoocheeRiver especially when you consider that the majority of the tour down the ChattahoocheeRiver is in the much shaded portion of the river. Tubing in Helen Georgia is safe for most any age. When I was there, there were children in individual tubes that were as perhaps as young as three and four years of age. Helen Tubing offers a gentle, mild, and somewhat safe, and lazy ride on the ChattahoocheeRiver. We saw a few families floating down the river with their dog.

We began our journey by parking at the main entrance of the HelenWaterPark, where there was more than plenty of free parking. We decided to first spend a few hours at the HelenWaterPark, floating lazily around the clean, clear cool waters of the one thousand foot pool that is located in the HelenWaterPark itself, and taking a few slides down one of the very fast water slides.

After several hours of getting water logged, and whipping up a appetite to die for, I drove just up the street and bought a sack full of awesome juicy BBQ sandwiches from North Georgia Bar-BQ, which is by far the best Bar-BQ in Helen Ga., and meeting back with my team where we enjoyed perfect Bar-BQ together at the scenic riverside picnic tables just outside of the Helen Water Parks gates.

After filling up on North Georgia Bar-BQ sandwiches, chips, and Coca Cola, we jumped on the parks shuttle bus which drove us to the upper portion of the Chattahoochee River to the starting point of our cool scenic Helen Georgia tubing tour down the river all the way back to the Helen Water Park were we first started. We then spent the rest of the afternoon getting a nice sun tan while enjoying all the fun filled activities available to us in the HelenGeorgiaWaterPark.

Tubing in Helen Georgia has quickly become a huge attraction. The cost is low for even the most budget conscious family, and if you are just interested in Helen Georgia tubing, you can take the Cool River tour which is less expensive than the Helen Water Park, and still get the complete experience, and Cool River Tubing also offers a add on to their tour giving you the option of enjoying a nice water slide that you can get on by exiting the river about half way down the tour.

The Cool River Tubing tour also offers perfect riverside picnic opportunities in beautiful shaded pavilions located right on the river at their exit point.

Whichever Helen Georgia tubing option you decide upon, tubing in Helen Georgia is a very low budget, fun filled, and exhilarating form of entertainment that will make for a long lasting and memorable family experience.
