Rolling Thunder Offers Both Mild and Wild River Adventures

Here at Rolling Thunder River Company, we’re thrilled to offer river adventures for people of virtually all ages and levels of experience. Whether you’re a newbie seeking a mild river adventure or a seasoned pro looking for a wild whitewater rafting experience, we have trips that are perfect for almost anyone!

Mild and Wild Adventures on the Ocoee and Toccoa Rivers

When you visit our Ocoee River Rafting Center and Toccoa River Tubing Center in McCaysville, Georgia, you’ll be presented with multiple options for an unforgettable adventure.

Relaxing Trips Down the Toccoa

The Toccoa River provides tubing, canoeing and kayaking adventures for beginners as well as families with children who are too young to embark on a whitewater trip – ages 5 an up.

Located in north Georgia, the Toccoa River is the perfect destination for anyone who wants to enjoy the gentle flow of the water and relax.

Exciting Ocoee Adventures

The Ocoee River provides some of the best whitewater rafting in the Southeast United States. The Ocoee has two separate sections – the upper and the middle – and both provide unforgettable adventures.

The middle section stretches five miles through nearly continuous class III and IV rapids and takes rafters through the Ocoee’s scenic rocky gorge. The five-mile upper section features more than 20 rapids, some of which that are more intense than those found in the middle section. This span contains the actual course from the 1996 Summer Olympic whitewater events, and it’s the perfect place to actually experience history.

Not sure whether you should choose the upper section or the middle section? On some days, we offer full-river trips. During this adventure, you’ll experience more than 40 rapids and spend nearly the entire day on the river. Our full-day trips also include a catered lunch along the river.

Whether you’re in the mood for a relaxing day floating down the Toccoa River or a thrilling adventure on the Ocoee, contact Rolling Thunder’s Ocoee/Toccoa River Rafting Center in McCaysville, Georgia! We’ll help you plan an adventure that’s perfect for any ages, skill levels and experience levels.
