Had a great time rafting with Big Frog. Our guide Alex was very knowledgeable of the river and kept us entertained. We will definitely be going back and requesting him.

Had an outstanding trip out on the river with our guide Alex! Had a group of seven. Only one person in the boat had ever been through any white water. Alex kept us safe and guided us through some of the most thrilling Rapids I had ever been down. Our guide was outstanding, however, the group of guides that piloted... More

I highly recommend this company. Our guide was Rob. He's an excellent guide, knew so must about the area. He made sure we had a safe, great time on the river. This part of the Ocoee has a lot of class 3 and 4s. Its great even for people who have never rafted before. We even had the opportunity to... More

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.

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
