THis was our first trip down the Ocoee and I would highly recommend the river for someone who is looking for thrills. THis was a non-stop ride of class 3 and 4 rapids, probably one of the best I have ever done. The only thing we complained of was the lack of attention to Covid as a threat and changing policies because of it. The group that went down the river packed a school bus and mask wearing was not mandated (we went rafting in May on the French Broad river and they made people wear maskes and social distance on the bus). The guide who told us about the river took off her mask and shouted at the top of her lungs over the crowd and while she was an amazing guide who certainly has a future in the theater if this river thing doesn't work out, she was spewing droplets all over the bus and the people near her.
Our guide was amazing except for a few racist remarks about other guests he had had on the river. THe guides went out of our way to make the trip really fun. "Surfing" rapids and spinning the boat.
We had such an enjoyable time!! And I realize that making changes because of the virus is challenging. MAybe they could have taken a couple buses to get us all down to the river, or staggered the trips so fewer people would be on the bus at the same time.

We started off our vacay with Outland Expeditions and man...did it set the pace for the rest of the trip! We had an absolute blast!! I booked Outland as their pricing seemed more reasonable than some of the other places, then I got a little worried. Wasted time spent worrying as they were absolutely fantastic. Rufus was our guide and he was terrific - he made sure us two 62yr olds didn't fall out of the boat - haha. Our 19yr old niece got the fun front position and all of the water. She loved it! Our small group fostered a 'family' attitude and we all watched out for each other. Most of us had never white water rafted before and the instructions were very thorough. Took away all my fear. Then the directions called out during the experience were easy to follow and made the experience the safest it could be. I highly recommend Outland Expedition and white water rafting to any couple or family or group. You won't be disappointed! This one experience was one we talked about for the rest of our vacay and everything else was held up in comparison. Such a fun time.

We all had a great time from beginning to end. Be advised, it does get busy, so you may need to wait a bit and you might not leave on time as expected due to circumstances. We had Kevin as our guide and he was awesome! He has a good sense of humor, knows his history of the river and encouraged team work. He made all of us feel comfortable. Make sure you have good upper body strength because dang those rafts are heavy! If you have never been, it is worth the risk and fun. They are great at giving instruction and fitting the gear on you to make sure you are safe and have a great time. Definitely will be back!

We had a great trip with our guide, Micah. In addition to being fun and entertaining, Micah helped a random kyaker who lost her paddle by running it up the river back to her. She also helped another boat with an evac. We nicknamed her "bad *** of the river". She knew the river. I felt completely safe and in good hands the entire trip. I would definately recommend Outland Expeditions and Micah to anyone who asks!

This is a first class white water rafting team. The booking team is responsive and courteous. The guides are professional and personable. The overall experience was amazing. Recommend Matt as a guide, he has a great demeanor with all ages, explained what to expect prior to each set of rapids and provided clear and concise directions to allow the raft to get the best experience. Encourage reserving the upper and middle combination package. Highly recommend Outland Expeditions for first timers and those with previous experience.

I’ve been using OE for 31 years. There is no other place that provides such a great experience for such a great value. And the bonus is that Lamar hires quality guides from all over the country. We’ve never had a bad guide or a bad experience with OE.
Our most recent River excursion was guided by Aaron. He was incredibly encouraging to each of us; he called us his “Crew”. I told him he should be a school counselor because could encourage anyone to do anything.
And his skill level for this River is unmatched. I’ve never had a guide who could put a loaded raft where he wanted it in the Ocoee with a little effort as Aaron did yesterday. I don’t believe I’ve ever been down the river when I didn’t get worn out from paddling. Yesterday was different. Aaron is too good at his job. I spent more time enjoying the river’s scenery and the company in the raft than I did paddling. It was GREAT!
I hope Aaron is our guide on the next trip.

Outland Expeditions exceeded all of my expectations once again! This was my second trip with them and I was even more impressed with them this time. They run a smooth operation, their employees are very knowledgeable and personable, and they work hard to make sure you have a great time. Corey and Kyle are both fantastic guides. They know the river unbelievably well and I felt safe the entire time, though they are willing to have some fun with you also. Overall, I highly recommend Outland for your next rafting trip on the Ocoee!

I bring my cross country team (18 of us) to North Georgia every summer for a team running camp. We are from Florida and running on the trails of GA, NC, and TN is a treat for us. Outland Expeditions is a "must do" on our visit and we have returned for 4 years consecutively. Many of the same guides are there every year so I know they have experience. Our group had three rafts and Madeline, Malone, and Corey were our guides. Corey was my guide and he is excellent. He assessed our group's ability and he was able to lead us to do many manuvers, surfs, 360s, etc that the other boats didn't do. We were even successful with surfing "Mission Impossible", all while feeling safe in the hands of his experience. It was a thrilling ride and I know my team loved it. I highly reccommend Corey. You can request him upon booking.

TN is one of my favorite places to explore & I wanted my sister to experience rafting(she was scared of the "big fast water")...lol. Anyhow, I love it and have been on several trips, so I booked the full day trip for the both of us with Outland & was not disappointed. They were AWESOME & the whole experience was perfect! Dustin did a great job, not one of us fell in. He knew the river & it showed as he named off the different rapids, and also some of the historical stuff too, which was a bonus. They even fed us lunch which was actually quite good. We are avid campers & were welcome to stay at their primitive campground for the next several days for some hiking. There are some BEAUTIFUL hikes in the area. We had access to their bathhouse & toilets the whole time, which was a plus, even though I used the lake instead🤷‍♀️. The facility was clean & well kept. I would definitely explore with them again & am thinking about doing the Cheoah river next. Thank you Outland Expeditions!
