About The River

Olympic Class White Water Rafting

Ocoee River rafting has become the most memorable highlight of a mountain vacation for hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. For many years, the tempestuous rapids of the Ocoee River were one of the best kept secrets in the Southeast. Then the whole world watched the ancient Ocoee River in action when it was chosen as the venue for the whitewater events of the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games. As a result, Tennessee rafting on the Ocoee River suddenly became a very popular destination.

With two separate “hang onto your helmet” sections of surging whitewater, the Ocoee River produces the most continuous stretch of class III and IV rapids of any river in the country. The legendary Ocoee River will give you a rowdy, romping, rollicking ride. Ocoee rafting is the perfect way to get your adrenaline rushing.

The dam-controlled Ocoee River has two separate sections for rafters to tackle - the Upper and the Middle. You will also hear some people refer to the Middle section as the Lower or the traditional. You have the option of just running one section or on selected days running both sections. Our Ocoee River Trip Schedule will show you which days each section is available. We use top of the line self bailing six person rafts on this river in order to give you the best possible ride on the water. Ocoee River rafting is a great way to rejuvenate your spirit! Just try it.
