Cool River’s mission is to provide you with a safe and memorable outdoor experience. We offer families and friends opportunities to relax and enjoy the outdoors together. Our aerial adventure park offers ziplines, three aerial adventure courses, and a climbing wall. All ages can find an adventure here. 

Planning a trip? We’re located at 112 Poplar Stump Road, 1.5 miles north of Helen, Georgia, a Bavarian-themed town in Southern Appalachia. We encourage reservations but walk-ins are welcome. We are within driving distance of Athens, GA, Atlanta, GA, Greenville, SC, Asheville, NC, and Chattanooga, TN


Our history: We are a small, family-owned and operated recreation company, started in 1990. However, our family has homestead farmed here for many generations. We’ve seen the Helen area undergo extensive change — from all-Appalachia days to the Alpine tourist destination it is today. We strive to continue to contribute positively to the town, to visitors’ experiences, and to the surrounding area.
