We have used this outfitter for many years and have always had a great time. Very nice friendly staff. Wil was our guide this year and did a great job ensuring we had a safe and enjoyable time on the river. Carlos is one heck of a bus driver among his many other responsibilities. Julie has always been a pleasure to deal with and Jewlz gets our reservations lined out like the pro that she is. We always have a large group of family and friends and paying the bill from many different people so this is sometimes confusing but always handled great. We had to cancel last year due to a sudden death in my immediate family and not only was our refund quick and without problems, when I called this year to book they remembered our previous situation and offered condolences. This type of personal interaction is just one more this that makes them stand out with us. We have a large group that camps there also and we always have a great time and enjoy the atmosphere. A slight warning to those that are looking for complete serenity and wilderness camping this isn't it, which for this weekend every year is great for us. Music, food and imbibing are the norm and we wouldn't have it any other way. Thanks again ya'll!

Went for the half day rafting trip on Saturday afternoon from 2-5:30 pm on September 19, 2020. Our guide was Eric and he was great and made the trip with 2 other couples a lot of fun. My wife and I sat in the front of the raft. The water was surprisingly warm even though the high temperature was 71 F. The river wasn't crowded like it is sometimes in the summer. This guide and the amount of visitors on the river made it possible to repeat some of the experience in the rapids.. After we returned to the registration site,, they had us dip our flotation vests and helmets in 4 different disinfectant solutions to sterilize the equipment for the next person who used the equipment. We would certainly like to do this again with a larger group of friends or family and would certainly want Eric to be our guide again. We purchased the deluxe picture package when we booked the trip through Groupon for approximately $50 which included 53 pictures. 17 were a little dark but the remaining 36 were great for memories and for sharing digital copies with friends and family. Buying the package ahead of time saved us from having to review our pictures and wait for other 11 boats to pick out the pictures they wanted to purchase individually. They emailed all 53 digital images before we left after changing clothes. All in all it was an awesome adventure for a Saturday excursion without spending the night. We want to spend a night in one of their cabins or camp out on their property and take the full day excursion next time.

Came with a group of girls for a bachelorette party and AU REALLY delivered! I really appreciate AU accommodating us after our late arrival due to a flat tire. The outpost was so neat. Great shaded parking. Good bath house. And a very cool outdoor canteen/bar area. I’ve done the Ocoee with another rafting company but this was the best experience I’ve had. I highly recommend doing the full Ocoee experience with lunch. The lunch was substantial for a day on the river! Josh Lemon (our guide) did an amazing job customizing this trip to just the “right amount” of “wild” we wanted to get while keeping us feeling very safe. He was a wealth of knowledge on the area and the history of TVA. Very interesting for a bunch of engineers on this trip! I would request him again as our guide.

This review is specifically about the camp ground at AU. My Husband and I were taking our 13 yr old son and his best friend on the Full river trip the next day. We picked a great site. We had a great meal and games by the fire. We turned in for the night around 9:30 to get ready for our adventure the next day. At 10:00 4 very loud, very foul mouthed individuals moved in right beside us. After a bit they went over to the Bus and we were able to sleep for a couple of hours. When they returned at about 12:30 they continued to be loud. Yes we asked them nicely to quiet down but they were very drunk and never did quiet down. We did not get any sleep and my kids learned many new disgusting words. Don't bring the kids camping on a weekend at the AU camp ground. The guides and trips are great! and we have camped on a Sunday with no issues at all.

I did things in a whitewater raft I had never even heard of before. Our Guide Lin (Mandy) Harris had us going down rapids backwards (on purpse) and one time we spun around and around in a fun thing called Screaming Turtle! Another great thing was when Lin (Mandy to us - OK we are her caving friends) asked "Who wants to ride the Bull?" Turns out this means you sit up on the nose of the raft and hang on to a strap. You better hang on because you go over about three drops in short order. Water went completely over me but I hung on. However, after being blasted the third time I got pushed into the floor of the raft. It was completely safe but totally crazy.

We recently pooled a group of 12 friends and family together and booked 2 boatloads of fun down the Upper and Middle Ocoee. Thanks to the electronic waivers, check-in was as easy as telling them that we were there. Kyle and Matt were terrific guides and both of our boats had an absolute BLAST!! Lunch is provided with the full day, deluxe trip and, after being tossed around by the upper section, it was a nice little break to refuel and get ready for the middle. The lunch was a turkey and cheese sandwich with lettuce, tomato, and condiments on the side, bag of chips, potato salad, orange, chocolate chip cookie, and water. It was very good and absolutely more than I could eat. We absolutely can't wait to book our next trip and hope to take an even larger group that we took this time.

This was my second time doing the full Ocoee River trip and it did not disappoint. My friend and I had an exhilarating time and made wonderful memories. Our guide Kyle was both very knowledgeable and entertaining. The whole operation runs like a well-oiled machine and they provide a simple, but delicious lunch. Highly recommend Adventures Unlimited!

I’ve been taking kids down the Ocoee for years and Adventures Unlimited is and has been my go to guide. Circumstances dictated using another guide last year and, sheesh, what a difference.

We took two boats of scouts down this trip. Paul was our guide and his experience, professionalism, and enthusiasm were outstanding. He’s guided for 18 years, the last five on the Ocoee, and it showed. We were able to surf rapids, hit them at crazy angles, and come out the other side wide-eyed, and whooping! The boys enjoyed it too. 😁

Their facilities and equipment are exceptional.. The other guides, the ladies inside, and our bus driver were all friendly and professional. And the entire experience was FUN! That was the goal and AU delivered! We also came away with great photos of the trip to share with friends and family. I will not run the Ocoee with any other outfitter again. Adventures Unlimited is the bomb!

Adventures Unlimited showed us an amazing time. We did the full day trip down the Ocoee and I highly recommend it for all the adventure seekers. Josh Lemon was our guide and he was incredibly knowledgeable about rafting and about the river. The area is beautiful and the rapids were awesome. Our trip was fantastic and I plan to return in the future.

We had a great time on the Ocoee!
Our guide, Jimmy, was excellent as he shared the history of the rafting experience on this super fun Tennessee river. He even spotted a bald eagle sitting in a tree!
Although the May weather was a bit cool the soaking runs through the rapids was exciting. We had a good variety of challenges including "surfing" different rapids and Jimmy's "360 views" of our incredible surroundings.
Adventures Unlimited did a fine job not only with the river experience but with camping and live music on-site.
We had a great time and will return again!
