About This Experience

General Information hide

The Ocoee River, in southern Tennessee, is one of America’s most popular rivers for whitewater rafting. The dam-controlled water flows from March thru October, and for eight months you can enjoy whitewater fun in the great outdoors.

This full day Rafting Adventure on Ocoee River includes a 10-mile fast-paced whitewater trip with a riverside stop for lunch between the Upper and Middle sections. The fun begins on the Upper section of the River with a mild float along the bushes and trees that clutter the riverbed, and ends seemingly abruptly as the churning and powerful water pushes the raft at great speeds. After lunch you will experience the Middle Ocoee which features a more relaxing ride, but still offers Class III and IV rapids to which are sure keeps your heart pumping!

So whether you are looking for a new way to enjoy Tennessee’s great outdoors, or for a unique gift, this Ocoee River Rafting is the ticket!
