First off, let me say that I have never rafted or kayaked anywhere besides Wildwater, so I may be somewhat bias; however, I cannot imagine there being a better rafting or kayaking experience available in the Southeast US, or perhaps any part of the US (especially for new or inexperienced rafters). Constituting the border between North GA and SC, the... More

I'd always wanted to try whitewater rafting, but was too chicken to go on my own, so a trip with my sister and her family was the perfect opportunity. I think we were all pretty nervous, but everyone at Wildwater was so professional and helpful that we were quickly put at ease. The safety briefing was thorough yet funny -... More

Before writing this, I read some other reviews, and it kind of fit the "profile" of the rafter I felt was good for this trip. First, years ago I'd rafted the New and Gauley in W. VA and more than once. I'm not sure I was prepared for a "wild and scenic" river as the Chattooga was referred to in... More

Took my 13, 15, and 17 year old on this trip. It was the best! Our guides name was Mia - she really rocked! The cottage was awesome - quaint and slept 4 beautifully. The only things I had wished is that I would have thought about firewood or charcoal. Maybe is was available from the staff but I didn't... More

Everything was wonderful about our experience! During the pre-rafting introduction, Nic, was very informative and did a great job of preparing everyone but was somehow able to still keep it fun, yet stressing the importance of safety! Throughout the rafting day, Nic and all of the guides, worked well as a team to keep everyone safe and having a blast!... More

We stayed at one of the cottages. The cottage is old but still decent. However, the bed sheets were smelly. They looked clean but they had a very strong stale odor. We also went on a whitewater rafting trip. It was a lot of fun but the life jacket I was given smelled terribly. I thought it was the smell... More

I took my older son(Kit) rafting in WA but wanted to take my younger twin boys (10) rafting this summer. The 1/2 day trip was a great way to give them an introduction to rafting. They got exposed to floating down the rapids in a safe and controlled environment both in/out of the raft and we ended with great drop!... More

This was another great experience with WW, my 11yr. old daughter and I had a blast, this trip was the best out of the three, longer and more big rapids (section 3), we cant wait until next year when my daughter is 12 and we can do section 4 and the Ocoee river. The guides have all been professional and... More

I promised my niece (visiting from New York) that I would take her rafting. We had an incredible day. Making reservations was easy and the folks in the phone explained everything! Place was easy to find and the staff totally awesome. As a first time rafter I was a bit nervous but our guide, Tupelo, had me at ease in... More

Our group involved both children and adults for a 1/2 day rafting trip. I have rafted with a number of outfits in the past and what I really enjoyed about this operation was the fact that their approach was very relaxed and made for a lot of fun. The staff was not over-the-top in terms of what you could/could not... More
