Ocoee River, TN
Rafting on America’s Olympic River
If you’re looking for a rafting trip with big waves, warm water, and non-stop whitewater action, the Ocoee River delivers. Located in Eastern Tennessee, the Ocoee is an easy drive from Atlanta, Chattanooga, and Knoxville. The Ocoee River was home to the 1996 Olympic whitewater slalom course; in fact, four NOC staff members competed in the Olympics that year.
NOC offers Ocoee rafting trips on two outstanding sections of the Ocoee River. The Middle Ocoee earns its title as “America’s most popular river trip” with five miles of continuous Class III rapids like Broken Nose, Double Trouble, and Tablesaw. For added excitement, try NOC’s full-day Ocoee trip, which combines the Middle Ocoee with an extra five miles of intense class III and IV rapids – including a run down the 1996 Olympic whitewater slalom course – plus a freshly prepared riverside lunch.
