Plan Your Trip
Are you open for the 2022 tubing season?
Our official opening is Memorial Day Weekend.
Do I need a reservation?
We accept reservations for groups of twenty or more. We need reservations for groups of 50 or more. This helps us schedule our staff. If your group has less than twenty people, there's no need to request a reservation; we'll be able to accommodate you on any date and at any time we are open.
How deep is the water?
It varies. Most of the river is ankle to knee-deep, but some sections will be over your head. In the deeper sections, the water tends to be much calmer and with fewer rapids.
Can dogs tube?
Absolutely, dogs are always welcome to tube! Don't believe me? Check out our Pooch on the 'Hooch photo album.
Is there somewhere we can picnic?
We have pavilions, picnic tables, and grills. They're all available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Do you have restrooms and changing rooms?
Yes. Restrooms, changing rooms, and showers are available to paying customers.
Can we tie our tubes together?
Yes. We have straps available to connect the tubes. These are included in the ticket price, and you can use as many as you need. For safety reasons, though, we don’t recommend floating down with more than three tubes connected. The more tubes that are connected the more likely you are to get stuck.
What to bring AND what NOT to bring on the River:
What should I do with my keys and personal items while I’m tubing?
You can rent one of our lockers for $3 (only at the Chattahoochee Outpost). Or, if you want to lock your things in the car, we hold car keys for free with a photo ID. Do not take your keys in the river with you. Many who insist on taking their keys end their trip with a call to the locksmith.
Can I take a cooler?
No, but each tuber is allowed to take one 32 oz. plastic drink container. No alcohol.
Can I bring my own personal flotation device?
Yes, as long as it is US Coast Guard approved.
Can I bring a camera?
Unless it is waterproof, we don't recommend it. It will get wet. We have waterproof phone cases and analog waterproof cameras for sale in our store.
Is there a weight, height, or age limit?
The minimum age is 3 years old for tubing. We don't have weight or height restrictions, but keep in mind that some places can be very shallow. Physical exertion may be required.
Do I need to be physically fit to go tubing?
Most people don’t find tubing strenuous. If we haven't had enough rain, however, it can involve a bit of work. The lower the water level, the more work required. This may involve using your push stick more often, walking, or getting up to move your tube if you are stuck.
Is the water safe?
We are at the head of the Chattahoochee River. The water is clean and cool. We have no E.coli trouble in the river. Keep in mind that you are in the outdoors, there is wildlife and natural rapids.
Do I have to be able to swim?
Since we're on a calm and relatively shallow stretch of the Chattahoochee, non-swimmers go tubing with us often. The rapids aren't classed, and only a few swimming holes have water deeper than 5’. Anyone who can't swim should wear one of the life-jackets we provide, and all kids age 12 and under are required to take a life-jacket.
Do you have a lifeguard on duty?
No guide or lifeguard accompanies you on the river, but our waterslides do have a lifeguard on duty.
Do I need a waiver if I'm under 18?
Yes, every participant must have someone 18 or older sign for them. You can download and print a waiver to be signed by a parent or guardian.
