The crew at Big Frog are very knowledgeable and encouraging to all their guests. They also make sure that the first timer feels comfortable going down the Ocoee. I go at least twice a summer and always bring new friends with me .

We had fun doing the full-day (Upper and Middle Ocoee) yesterday! Alex, our guide, was an excellent guide who trusted our group enough to paddle through the rapids and not get down so much! Our group was unscathed (no involuntary swimming), and we had a blast yesterday! Thank you Alex, and Big Frog! P.S. Also, lunch was great!

Came up to Tennessee to celebrate two birthdays with a trip down the Ocoee River! We took the middle route and our guide Leshawn was awesome! If you're heading up just to raft or for the weekend I highly recommend him as a guide and Big Frog for the company and experience!

We traveled from Orlando to go white water rafting and BiG Frog had an amazing deal on Groupon. They were quick and professional and we highly recommend them. We split in 2 groups as we brought 8 people with us. We HIGHLY recommend asking for Alex as your guide. He was very funny and provided great assurance to our teenagers.... More

Did the middle Ocoee and had a good time. Our guide, Alex, was cool with shenanigans such as standing up in rapids (I didn't fall out and he didn't ask me to sit down). Alex also jumps higher than the other guides when dropping into holes. My only regret is that we failed to get any water over the side... More

My family and I experienced rafting the Ocoee for the first time. We chose Big Frog Expeditions and could not be happier with our choice! From the very beginning, the staff was very respectful. Our guide, Blaine, made our first experience one we will never forget! He was easy to get along with, very knowledgeable, and made everyone smile. As... More

It started with a simple phone call. I want to thank Rob for being so prompt and professional with a return call. I called the night before and DIDN'T leave a message. He called first thing in the morning returning my call and answering all questions. When we arrived we were greeted by friendly staff members. It wasn't my first... More

My family and I did the Upper Ocoee River trip and had the most awesome experience ever. It was about a 2 hr. ride down the Ocoee. We have done whitewater rafting in NC and Wy but this was the best yet. Rob, the owner, was our guide and we wanted a true challenging experience. He provided not only the... More

Had a wonderful time on the river this past Monday. Our guide was Alex. He knew a lot about the river and was able to connect with us as people and not just customers. Would definitely go back!
