Big Frog is a well run company and they have great experienced guides. I would highly recommend them for their expertise and care for their clients. We are senior citizens and they put us with the most experienced guide and a trainee. We enjoyed ourselves so much we want to go back!

We used a different company, however our guide, Chuck Virciglio, regularly works for Big Frog- he was just helping out this day. We had 2 adults, 2 children, and did the upper and lower Ocoee. Chuck was amazing with our daughter, who is on the small side. He kept her close to him for safety, but gave her several jobs... More

We take our church youth group whitewater rafting each summer and always use Big Frog. They have a great staff who is always professional and clean-cut. The facility is nice and clean.

We've rafted in this region a number of times, but Big Frog is definitely the most accommodating, friendly outfit we've dealt with! They were generous with fitting our larger party in, our guide Joey was fabulous, and the swollen Ocoee couldn't have given us more thrills the day of our launch! Thank you all so very much! Y'all know the... More

My wife and I took the kids to go rafting and were looking forward to the full day trip. Unfortunately the rain did not agree and they closed down the whole river that day. However Big Frog and Rob, the manager, was great and worked to schedule us for the next day which we were only allowed to raft the... More

A great day! Totally worth it to do the "combo" trip, which is both sections of the Ocoee in one day. Doing just the middle section is fun, but since you have to spend time driving to the Ocoee, then going through the safety talk, the bus ride, the put-in, etc., you had might as well just book the combo...

We experienced a great time on the mountain biking expedition through Big Frog!! Our guide, Yile (SP?), was outstanding!! She prepped us for the trails, the area, and what to experience. The trails were dirt/gravel, with some great views of the mountains and rivers. Would do it all over again!

I have done another river several times and the guide I always use, told me that I needed to try a more adventurous river. He recommended the Ocoee and Big Frog as the outfit to go with; I owe him a big "thank you". I did the whole experience, rented a tent for the night and chose the whole day... More

We did the upper/middle combo trip. What a great time we had! We went through the Olympic part of the course and made it through with no problem.(can't say that for others). We stopped after the upper section for lunch. A pretty good spread was served. Then onto the middle section. An exhausting but fun time. Highly recommend Big Frog... More

We went in the Upper & Middle trip this Saturday & are definitely hooked on white water rafting. Big Frog Expiditions Rafting Company had a great price, well worth our money. The staff was extremely informative and funny. They all seemed to love what they do for a living and made our trip one to always remember. Lunch was very... More
