We had a fantastic time, everybody was great but of course our guide, James, was the "bestest". Must include the Upper River (1996 Olympic run) if you are planning to go.

Great time!! Staff seemed to be ok, but ALEX (one of the guides) made our trip very fun & definitely worth the money! If you happen to go to the Big Frog Expeditions in Benton, TN, and you really want to have a good time, request ALEX, if he is there.

We had a fab half day trip with Big Frog with the BEST guide- Les!! He was so knowledgeable, fun, safe and adventurous! We will definitely be back. This was a perfect day out in the middle of Mother Nature with a great workout too! What fun!!

I have rafting the Ocoee River twice with Big Frog Expeditions. I have taken a group from my church both times. I did it in 2009 with a group of 20 Youth. And I did it today (August 9th, 2015) with a group of 26 (ages ranging from 13 to 50ish). Wonderful staff. They were very helpful and patient. I... More

What an awesome trip. Glad we chose her. I had never been rafting, and the others wanted me to sit in the front. I didn't know if it was to be mean or safe. Our guide Ariane, asked us what kind of fun we wanted to do, and she delivered. I didn't want to fall out or flip, but some... More

This rafting trip was tons of fun. Big Frog was easy to locate and it's a beeeautiful drive to get out there. The staff was so friendly and had a good sense of humor. We all stayed in the raft and had a blast on the class 3 and 4 rapids. Can't wait to go back!

In all honestly, we had no idea which was the best outfitter to use for a trip down the Ocoee. There were several offering a Groupon, including Big Frog. I started reading reviews and also looking at the what the Groupon offered. Before I go further, understand the Ocoee is the most rafted river in the country. It's water flow... More

Great day on the Upper portion of the Ocoee. Our guide Alex was awesome, very knowledgable, and engaging. Not to mention a spitting image of James Franco. Big Frog was very hospitable and fun!

Great Class III/IV trip with experienced guides and a great staff. From the reservation (cut us a better deal than a Groupon we saw) through check in and the trip itself, all the staff were friendly and helpful. Our guide, Les, gave us a great ride, surfing several rapids that other rafts went straight through. His commentary-keeping up aware of... More
