We arrived and a group was camped on our site that we had reserved one month in advance. That was resolved when we returned from our kayak trip after a short wait. Not that big of a deal. We rented the inflatable kayaks that seemed to be in good shape. The equipment was good and we really enjoyed ourselves. Everyone... More

When we arrived at the campground we found that HO had no record of our campsite or boat rentals despite two different calls to confirm our reservation. We waited for about an hour for boats to be available. The HO employee did not know which bus to send our group to.The bus driver had to be asked to get out... More

Our group has been using HO for YEARS! We rent a large portion of the campground for the weekend and raft once. As far as I know we've never had any issues. The bathrooms get pretty rough during the day (as is expected for the type of business) but are regularly cleaned so no complaints. The staff has always been... More

What a great day my family and friends had rafting on the Hiwassee River. It is a very relaxing trip with a few swift currents and beautiful scenery suitable for all ages. The staff at Hiwassee Outfitters was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and made it a great experience. We will definitely be back. Grab a t-shirt while you're there.

We were on vacation from Texas and I have never been rafting or canoeing before. We tried Hiwassee Outfitters and were far from disappointed. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The river was very high after all the recent rain so the float was even better than expected! The mountainous views were beautiful and I could not have asked... More

We had a great day rafting at Hiwassee Outfitters! This place came highly recommended by a local who rafts there frequently. The prices were reasonable. The staff was helpful. The inflatable rafts and canoes were very sturdy. It is a relaxing, quiet place. Beautiful!

We had a blast kayaking and rafting the Hiwassee! Hiwassee Outfitters earn a five star rating with us since they went out of their way to make sure we had the best experience possible our first time kayaking.

We always love staying at this campground and running this river! While the Ocoee is wilder, the Hiwassee is better for self-guided trips for beginner and even advanced kayaks, canoes, duckies, and yes even inner tubes. The river is wide, clear, beautiful, and lots of fun. Be prepared for a dunking, but even kids are safe paddling this river. Wear... More

We took our 2 young boys (3 and 7) to Hiwassee Outfitters for a fun day of funyaking. The overall experience was great! The 7 year old loved it. The 3 was just ok with it. The checking went very smoothly. The 'set up' getting paddles, life jackets etc was down to a science not a problem. However the only... More
