I have no complaints as far as the river portion of the trip. The equipment was in good shape, clean and the costs were reasonable. However, I would NEVER ever stay in the cabin our group had again. The grass surrounding the area was in desperate need of a cut and by the end of the weekend it was an... More

Can't say how much we love Hiwassee Outfitters! This is our families 3rd or 4th trip there. The staff is very friendly and made our stay fun for the whole family. My kids love riding bikes with there friends and love going down the river. We will definitely be coming back soon and have recommended this place to several friends... More

I was expecting the river to have more class 3 and 4 rapids but the Hiwassee is pretty calm. It does have a few pretty cool rapids though and it was really fun still. My boyfriend and I and two of our friends went together and rented a tube from Hiwassee Outfitters. For the most part the staff was really... More

This place is primarily an outfitter for trips down the Hiwassee River. It is a great river that is done without a guide and I think kids as young as five can go. You can rent rafts, inter tubes, and Kayaks. The service and equipment are both excellent and the staff is friendly. The outfitter portion of this business is... More

We had a 2:30 reservation to go rafting. When we arrived at 2:00 we were informed that "reservations" don't really mean reservations and that our bus trip would not be until 3:00 as the 2:30 bus was already full. We waited but bus was actually ready until around 3:30. The bus was loaded but we waited on the hot bus... More

Husband and I had a great time on the river....we had an inflatable two-person kayak, perfect for our adventure, no guide needed....Class 1-2....Primitive surroundings, natural surroundings made for a great trip. Call before you go to check the water levels...we were "hung up" quite a bit on the rocks, but a great wide river to enjoy....

We have been going down the Hiwassee River for many years. This is one of a few rivers that can be navigated without a guide and still have a great time with rapids. The equipment is great and we always use the funyaks for the best ride. There's always lots to do, from playing in the water at the back... More

Quite simply the filthiest campground I've ever been to. Unfortunately, they are the only game in town for camping in the area. The location is the only reason to stay here. Just stayed this weekend and the same old dirt and disrepair are present, but new this year is mud. It was everywhere. Probably just going to do day trips... More

I have been coming to HO for many years. The only reason my group stays there is the location. The bathhouses have been in the same state of disrepair for years. It seems as if the same toilets are out of order, the same showers leaking, etc. We have stayed for long weekends and the same trash will be on... More

Best rafting experience this side of the Mississippi! My family and I had an incredible weekend camping, hiking, and rafting all thanks to the friendly and helpful staff at Hiwassee Outfitters! The rafts and funyaks are excellent quality and they have BRAND NEW LIFEJACKETS!! The staff went above and beyond to make sure that our experience was one to remember-from... More
