I have gone to Helen every year since the 70s and yes the water is cold; but, you don't really notice it once you get wet especially on a hot day. The river is really low this year. Must be that no rain thing. They do have a small waterpark there with a couple of slides and a lazy river and a small amusement park and putt-putt. I would go with some of the other suggestions from other members unless you just have to have some of the home-made fudge or hand-blown figurines from Helen.

The Toccoa River in McCaysville, GA is quite nice for inner tubing and canoeing. Rolling Thunder River Company rents tubes, canoes and kayaks for trips during the warm months. TVA controls the water in this river so there is usually plenty for these kind of activities.

For a trip with kids, I would suggest the Nantahala (NC) or the Ocoee (TN).

Thanks
