The Middle Section
Ocoee white water rafting on this section is 5 miles of almost continuous class 3 and 4 rapids. During this five mile trip down the traditional middle section of the Ocoee River, everyone in the raft works as a team and paddles upon commands from their guide. On an Ocoee rafting trip, our raft guides will steer you through such memorable rapids as Slingshot, Broken Nose and Tablesaw. Adventurous first timers as well as the more experienced rafters will all enjoy this exhilarating whitewater rafting ride through the rocky, scenic gorge of the Ocoee River. Before being transported to the river, all rafters will attend a pre-trip safety orientation. A short, bus ride to the river will give you a little time to enjoy the mountain scenery along the way. At the river you will help carry your raft a short distance to the launch site. With the dramatic backdrop of water roaring over dam #3 you will begin your adrenaline rushing Ocoee rafting trip.
“Ride the bull” through one of these heart thumping rapids while screaming "yeeehaw" at the top of your lungs and you’ll have an experience you’ll be recounting to friends for years to come. Ocoee River rafting - an adventure that you don't want to miss.
Note: TVA rarely releases water for rafting on Tuesdays and Wednesdays so we do not schedule trips on those days.
The Ocoee River runs through Tennessee and Georgia. The Ocoee white water rafting sections are in Tennessee's Cherokee National Forest. The headwaters cross the state line into Georgia where the name changes to the Toccoa River. We offer relaxed float trips on the Toccoa.
