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!

For some of our group this was their first trip, but for me this was my fourth trip with Big Frog, and we loved it! Kat was our guide and she had us laughing the whole way down the river. I would highly recommend rafting with Big Frog!!!

Very friendly and professional. We had our two teenaged grandchildren, and we are young "senior citizens". We requested an experienced guide and we were paired up with Mark, who has been on the river for 22 years. He gave us instructions for anything that might happen. The staff at the outpost also vent over all equipment and safety measures. It... More

Our two families rafted the upper and the middle Ocoee with Big Frog on August 9th. 2014. It was amazing. Our guide Joey (Monkey) was awesome. He was very informative and extremely careful with us. This wasn't our first rafting trip on the Ocoee. We rafted the middle back in June with Ocoee Adventure Center, which was great too. We... More

My 2 best friends and I took part in the full river trip. We initially had 5 going, but 2 guys couldn't get away. Big Frog worked with us, and made it painless to just adjust prices for 3. The day of the trip was great from star to finish. From the painless brief on safety, to the staff basically... More

I have been several times with Big Frog and few times with other companies, and Big Frog is truly the best time on the river every time I go. There great guides make the trip.

In my lifetime, I have rafted the Ocoee on at least 50+ occasions. During these trips, I have used most all of the rafting outfitters in the area. I can say without hesitation that Big Frog Expeditions is THE BEST of all of the outfitters in the area. The guides are extremely professional and knowledgeable of the river and how... More

We've gone on rafting trips with Big Frog four times now. Each time, we've seen other rafting companies in the river with reckless or inexperienced guides who manage to run into big rocks, flip their boats and put their customers in danger. Big Frog never takes unsafe chances for a laugh or a thrill. They are experienced guides who want... More

I called to make a reservation as an anniversary gift for my “outdoorsy” husband, and the woman who helped me was very attentive and prompt, I appreciated it! Directions and map provided with our confirmation helped us to find our way easily. Drew was our guide. He mentioned that he was new, but we never could tell. He was excellent!... More
