The staff here was very friendly and the shuttle driver had excellent customer service. At the time of my visit it was 10 bucks a person to rent a tube and 5 dollars for the sticks you need to help you get unstuck. Which is a must have due to some of the water levels and the way the currents... More

I also recommend water shoes because your butts gonna be dragging on rocks and you'll occasionally want to get up and walk and drag your family along

We did the short river tube (approx 2 hours of floating down the Chattahoochee) as the water levels were quite low. The optional sticks you can buy are really actually quite necessary when the river level is low- we used them a lot to get going along the way.

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
