There are plenty of reviews about the rapids and such, so here is our review of the whole experience, including camping on site. I hope you find this helpful in planning your trip! :)
We had 4 people in our party, we'd all bought a groupon for rafting. The return policy is clearly stated on their website, and it is very strict, so please be aware of that before you book to avoid any problems. We reserved 2 of their camping tents onsight in advance. We drove down from Nashville, it took about 2 hours. We checked in, everyone was really nice. They gave us 2 tents directly behind the check in office, up on a hill. They are very small, they say that each tent can hold 4 people, that seems ridiculous, but they do provide 4 twin sized mattresses inside (which takes up the whole tent... so there wouldn't be any room for your stuff). I suppose it would work for 2 adults and a child. But if it were me, and you were a family of 2 adults and 2 teenagers or something, I'd definitely rent 2 tents. We put 2 mattresses on top of each other for each of us, so our mattresses were double-decker and more comfortable... then we had room for our bags and such. The camping facility is nice. We liked how natural our area was, and noticed that there was another nice circle of tents at the top of the hill, it would be nice for a large family or group that wanted to rent like 6 tents, they could rent the whole area and have privacy. However, the tents at the bottom of the hill, near the entrance were just out on a field, they had no shade/trees. That isn't camping in my opinion. It looked like a church group had rented that area, I'd avoid that area if at all possible. Our area had a firepit and charcoal grill area to share with a total of about 5 tents. No one else wanted to use it when we did, so it wasn't a problem. There was a large covered pavillion heading down towards the bathrooms and it had electricity. We saw another family using the outlits for a coffee maker and skillet in the morning, that seemed like it was much easier than us trying to fry bacon over the charcoal grill- it took forever! ha ha. Anyways, we slept well, but 2 local dogs do come by to swipe food you've left out. They are very friendly, but still... if you want to keep your bread or crackers, keep them hidden! :) Our rafting time was 10am. We got there just in the nick of time to fill out our forms/waivers... then headed on the bus. It wasn't too long on the bus, then we got to where we put our rafts in, they gave a little lesson. You do get to choose your guide, so while on the bus- pick out who you like the best... personality wise, since he'll be joking around with you (or not) the whole afternoon! We liked our guy, he was experienced and funny... the four of us girls got to be in the same raft without anyone else which was nice. The actual rafting was fun, we did the MIDDLE Ocoee rafting trip. We stayed energized with adrenaline the whole way basically. Half way through, the rafts pull over and you can get out and walk around... really I think they did this because there became a back up of other rafting companies and ours all in the same area, so I think we all stopped for a minute to let the others go by. We brought granola bars and ate them then, we were starving. Rafting is a lot of work!
After the trip was over, we tipped our guide and headed back to our cars and the Big Frog campsite area. We showered and got freshened up and then headed to the local restaurant our guide had highly recommended. We told the hostess his name and he got "points" so that when he gets a certain amount, he eats free. :) The food was good, but the service was REALLY SLOW.
Anyways, I hope that was helpful. If you have any questions, let me know!
