Whitewater Raft the Middle Ocoee River


    Added by Kristian Conway

    Raft exhilarating Class III & Class IV whitewater rapids through the beautiful mountains of southern Appalachia.

    The middle Ocoee River offers Class III and Class IV rapids through the southern Appalachian Mountains. Those with their own vessels can put into the river just below the Ocoee #2 TVA Dam. For those who do not have a vessel, there are numerous river guide companies who offer guided adventures. The middle Ocoee is a 5 mile section that takes roughly 3-4 hours to complete.
