We will have a blast floating down the river and then we’ll go to Helen for a bite to eat. We’ll meet the camping group from the Squirrel’s Nest Trip at Cool River Tubing in Helen, Ga at 10:30 am. Cool River will transport us to the “drop spot” on the river and we will float approximately 3.5 miles down the river. There is a spot with a cool natural slide. We will stop there and repeat the spot as many times as people want. When we reach the pull out point, our guides will pick us up and return us to office. There are changing rooms and showers available as well as a gift shop. You may bring beverages to drink on the river but be aware that glass and disposable containers are not allowed on the river. After tubing, we’ll drive to a restaurant in town for a bite and some refreshment. This was an awesome day last year and promises to be the same again.

Required Items to Bring:
bathing suit
Change of clothes
Old shoes or sandals for the river
Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
water bottles or beverage of choice (disposable containers are not allowed on the river) Water proof camera
