Ocoee River Rafting in Chattanooga
Cascade Outdoors aims to create a unique and memorable experience for its Ocoee River whitewater rafting guests...
Tennessee's Ocoee River flows from the foothills of the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains and offers some of the finest whitewater in the world. The Ocoee River is the home of the whitewater slalom events in the 1996 summer Olympics so itíll be sure to challenge you and your crew. Due to the excellent rapids and rock formations of the Ocoee River, this was also the only Olympic whitewater course built on a natural riverbed.
Ocoee Rafting boasts class III and IV rapids, which are best described as large waves with significant rapids that include moderate drops. The excitement of Ocoee rafting will only be comparable to the beauty that will surround you in the Cherokee National Forest. As you are plunging into the vast waves of the Ocoee River, towering hemlocks and Virginia pines will surround you and remind you of the remote wilderness that surrounds the area and truly lets you escape from it all.
