North Georgia River Tubing, Outdoor Music Concerts, and Rustic Mountain Cabins

Spring time is here, and summer is just around the corner. The kids are out of school, and it’s time for a getaway! Now that the warm weather is upon us, take a trip to the North Georgia Mountains for some river tubing or a tube tracker trip! Also come on up to the North Georgia mountains to enjoy outdoor music concerts during  Pickin’ on the Porch every 2nd and 4th Saturday this summer. Better yet, why not make a little vacation out of the trip and rent a rustic cabin or spacious villa to soak up all of the mountain surroundings. Whether just a weekend trip or an entire week, The Coosawattee River Resort is THE spring and summer destination packed wallet friendly adventures.

NORTH GEORGIA RIVER TUBING The Coosawattee River Tubing Company in Ellijay is just an hour north of Atlanta, GA and just an hour south of Chattanooga, Tennessee. A fun-filled 2-1/2 hour inner tube float down the Coosawattee River in the North Georgia Mountains is all yours. Floating down the river is a great way to reduce stress and enjoy the peace and serenity of the North Georgia Mountains!

Tubing down the Coosawattee River is a lot of fun, and The Coosawattee River Tubing Company (706-635-1609) furnishes the tube, life vest, and shuttle service to and from the river for a $15 admission price. Changing rooms are available, as well as tubing / meal packages and group rates. Although reservations are not mandatory, trips book fast so availability inquiry and reservation(s) are advised. Please note that children must be at least 48 inches. A waiver must be signed and submitted prior to the tubing excursion. To save time, please read the rules and regulations and then print & sign the waiver prior to coming on the tubing trip

The Coosawattee River Tubing Company also offers tube tracker trips, which are similar to kayaks but are much easier to maneuver. Each trip lasts 1-1/2 hours and is $20.00 per trip which includes equipment and shuttle to and from the river. Reservations are required.

The tubing and kayaking season opens May 1st and runs through October. The Coosawattee River Tubing Company schedule is as follows:

Trip times are 10am, 11am, 12pm and 1:30pm. Some days on weekends they may run a 2:30pm trip.
  •     May 1st to Memorial Day: Friday, Saturday, and Sunday

GEORGIA SUMMER OUTDOOR CONCERTS  Pickin' on the Porch in front of The General Store at Eagle Mountain is an outdoor music event not to miss. The live music is free (can’t beat that!) and scheduled the 2nd and 4th Saturday night of each month (weather permitting), with a variety of local entertainment and music from gospel to blue grass to Old Time Rock 'n' Roll. Bring a lawn chair, pull up a seat next to the bon-fire, and roast some marshmallows while enjoying the entertainment and mountain ambiance!

THE GENERAL STORE AT EAGLE MOUNTAIN While taking a get-away in the North Georgia Mountains, be sure to stop by The General Store at Eagle Mountain where the days are slower like that of the old general mountain store and where friends gather for special activities, every day needs, good food, good times, and arts & crafts.
