About the Ocoee

_

Middle Ocoee River

Ranked one of the top rivers for whitewater rafting you will not want to miss out on the Middle Ocoee trip.  It offers offers the most continuous stretch of Class III-IV Rapids in the country! Tumbling through a spectacular scenic gorge in the Cherokee National Forest, the Middle Ocoee plunges 269 feet over five miles. Paddlers must maneuver around treacherous boulders, crashing waves and a drop over steep ledges.

Let our guides help you experience the thrill of rafting the Middle Ocoee, from the put-in at Grumpy’s to the final wave at Hell Hole. No matter what your skill level or previous experience may be, your professional High Country Adventures guide will deliver you through the wild and wooly rapids of Double Suck, Tablesaw and Broken Nose— in one piece!

Know Before You Go

Key things to keep in mind

  • You will get wet

  • The minimum age to raft the Ocoee River is 12 years old

  • The Middle section of the Ocoee is 5 miles of rafting and you will be with us for approximately 3 hours

  • The Ocoee River is dam controlled but Mother Nature can impact our flow of water
  • We will raft rain or shine

  • No experience is needed. However, physical participation is required by everyone that will be in the raft, this includes paddling, and walking on uneven terrain. We recommend that you are in good health as the activity can be strenuous.

  • PFDs (Personal Flotation Devices) are fully adjustable but will not expand past a size 56” chest. A PFD must fit appropriately to ensure safety.

  • Due to the unpredictable nature of this activity we cannot allow the following guests to participate; women who are pregnant, those with heart conditions and anyone with a recent surgery.

  • We will do our best to keep groups together, but due to raft capacity we may have the need to split groups up on occasion. We appreciate your understanding.

  • Summer Months

    • Clothes you don’t mind getting wet; shorts, shirts, bathing suits.

    • Shoes or sandals that you can secure to your feet (old sneakers, river shoes or sandals)

    • Bring a dry outfit to change into after rafting because you will get wet

Covid-19 Information

 

Our guests safety on and off the river is our top priority. We are preparing increased sanitizing measures at the outpost, including our buildings, gear and our buses.
