Great time with the family. Tubing was so fun. There are a couple of deep spots so if you are not a swimmer I would advise wearing a life jacket. Just a great way to relax while in Helen.

I love listening to the water as it rushes thru the middle of the town. Spraying out mist as it goes by. We went there about three years ago in the summer time.

Tranquil and lazy in some areas, tumultuous and wild in others, I will ALWAYS find time to sit by the river

Was in Helen for Octoberfest. Helen is exactly as you would expect, it is a tourist trap and is a bunch of shops and bars but I recommend going for a day. The river is nice and it appears that the tubing rides have solid...More

I wish I knew. We did not go tubing. I'm sure that that information is readily available in Helen or on the internet.
