Tubing on the Toccoa River


The happy days of summer are here, and tubing down the Toccoa River is a refreshing and exhilarating activity while staying in our luxury Blue Ridge, Georgia vacation rentals. Tubing in Blue Ridge, GA and the surrounding area is a fun way to cool down, enjoy the beauty of Blue Ridge and the North Georgia mountains, and have a great time with friends and family.  

The Toccoa River is a dam-controlled river and water is released daily, so be sure to stay alert or check the TVA website for water releases. Water levels and speed can change significantly after water is released. At low water, the river is shallow and moves at a slower pace, wonderful for leisurely tubing. At high water, the river rises 2 to 3 feet and picks up considerable speed. 

When tubing down the Toccoa River you can enjoy the river in a number of ways. If you're staying at any of our Toccoa River cabin rentals, like Riverview LodgeOutlaw RidgeFallen Timber LodgeA Rolling River Cabin, or The River's Edge, be sure to bring your own tube ($5 at Walmart) and put in on the river. You will experience an awesome 2-hour float into Horseshoe Bend Park, which is outside of McCaysville.  Have someone in your party pick you up, which is a short 10-minute drive from those cabins.  This is one of our most favorite summertime activities from your own cabin!...
