This wasn't our first time with Big Frog, and it definitely... More

Great experience! Alex the owner's son was our guide. He was extremely knowledgeable of the river and historical facts. My friend had a injured knee Alex was cautious but made the rafting a thrill seeking experience if that's possible! We didn't feel rushed to get the trip over. Safety was their first priority at Big Frog! We enjoyed it so... More

We took a large group of high school students and leaders on a Big Frog trip and we LOVED it! The pre-trip reservations end was excellent. They had great customer service all the way from the front office to the guides. Thanks Big Frog. We'll be back again this summer with our group as well!

This trip was great. The staff was very polite, friendly, and upbeat. The place was very nice and you didn't feel like you were at a low class business, everything was nice, clean, and new looking. The trip to the river was done on a nice, newer bus, and once you got to the river, the guide took us through... More

Big Frog always does an excellent job taking us down the river. They provide a thrilling adventure with breathtaking views of the Ocoee River. Alex was our guide this time around. He did an incredible job guiding us down the rapids with the perfect mix of adventure, humor, and safety. Our family rafts with Big Frog year after year. Highly... More

For the last 2 years we have been camping, biking, kayaking and white water rafting through big frog expeditions on the 4th of July holiday. The experience is so amazing that we look forward to making this a yearly tradition. Camping: Ask for the campgrounds in the back if you want a more authentic experience. The campgrounds closer to the... More

I love Big Frogs Expeditions. I've gone every year, usually twice a year. Last year I went twice bringing a different set of friends each time. They all want to go again this year, so it looks like I'll be going 4 times this year, minimum. If that doesn't say how great these people are, I don't know what else... More

We had an awsome time. Our guide Joey and Rob the guide of the other raft made our adventure very special. We will go back and do it again.

We had Rob as our guide. Not only did he do some fun things with the raft like surfing, but he also gave great history lessons as we floated down the river. Learned a lot about the area and had a blast!
