Ocoee River Rafting - Wildwater

The Ocoee River with big, closely spaced rapids, makes it one of the most popular whitewater rivers in the nation.  No other river in the East offers the degree of challenge, variety and consistent water flow that is found here in Ducktown, TN.

Raft one of the ten best whitewater rivers in the country as rated by Canoe Magazine.  It has been chosen as the site of several national whitewater championships and was the home of the 1996 Olympic Whitewater competition.  The Ocoee River is an easy day trip from Atlanta and a popular local attraction for Blue Ridge, GA, Chattanooga, TN and Hiawasee, GA.

In the spring and fall water is released into the river weekends and in the summer water runs five days per week, Thursday through Monday.  The Ocoee River water is used by TVA to generate power when not released for whitewater fun.
