Ocoee Whitewater Rafting
If you are looking for big waves, warm water and continuous fun, then an Ocoee white water rafting trip is what you are looking for! We offer both half day and full day whitewater rafting options on the Ocoee River.
Located near the Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee border, the Ocoee offers two exciting sections of Class III-IV whitewater, making it one of the most popular river runs in the southeast. It is easily accessible from Atlanta, Chattanooga, and Knoxville.
Trip Leaders, Parents, etc: There is a minimum age limit of twelve (12) years old, which is strictly enforced by the U.S. Forest Service. Please make sure your children meet the requirement before the trip to avoid disappointing them on arrival.
Two Great Sections of the Ocoee
For exciting Class III-IV continuous big water fun, the Middle Ocoee is a favorite. Roller coaster, big wave rapids with names like Double Trouble, Table Saw, Double Suck and Hell Hole makes this run too much fun! The Middle Ocoee is available on weekends from March – May, and October, and from Memorial Day – Labor Day is available 5 days a week: Thursday – Monday.
Upper Ocoee (Olympic Section)
The Upper Ocoee is an action-packed run that includes the 1996 Olympic Slalom course. It is often referred to as the “Olympic Section”. More remote than the Middle, the rapids are steeper, more pool-drop and carry such names as Humongous, Edge of the World, Roach Motel and Let’s Make a Deal. The Upper Ocoee is available on weekends only, from May – September.
Ocoee Deluxe: The Upper & Middle
Two sections of the Ocoee River in one action-packed day. We begin with a morning run down the Upper Ocoee. At the end of the run, we stop for a delicious riverside lunch. After downtime to relax and enjoy lunch, we then embark on an afternoon of roller-coaster fun down the Middle Ocoee. Trip price includes all equipment, shuttles, a delicious lunch and an action packed-day on the river. For those coming from east of the Ocoee, complimentary transportation from our Nantahala Outpost. This is hands-down our favorite trip.
Ocoee Double Middle Trip
This is a full day of non-stop fun on the Middle Ocoee! The continuous, big water of the Middle Ocoee is so much fun the first time we offer it twice in one day! We use the first run as a warm-up run to orient the group to the river, followed up with our delicious picnic lunch alongside the river. This gives you a chance to catch your breath before an exciting afternoon run. Trip price includes all equipment, shuttles, a delicious lunch, and a memorable full-day on the river. For those coming from east of the Ocoee, complimentary transportation from our Nantahala Outpost is available.
Ocoee Single Upper or Middle Trip
When there is only time for one! We offer a single, half-day trip on either the Upper Ocoee or the Middle Ocoee. Each section is 5-miles of fantastic whitewater. The Upper Ocoee is available as a morning run on Saturdays and Sundays, May – September. The Middle Ocoee is available as a morning or afternoon trip on weekends from March – October, and from Memorial Day – Labor Day it is available every day except Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The single trip is perfect when time or budgets do not allow for a full-day trip.
