Great location, and everything went well with our rafting trip, but I won't ever stay at the campground again. A big sign with the campground rules was posted at the campground entrance but it's apparently just for decoration. The rules included keeping dogs on a leash, no loud music, and quiet time at 11p. There were 4 dogs not tied...

My family and I was so glad we made it finally to do some rafting at Hiwassee Outfitters! It's very organized, cleaned and plenty things to do! The workers are friendly and very helpful. I would suggest this to be a must for a family or group to visit they won't regret it! Along with excellent services it has a...

Great location and staff. Awesome for families to enjoy a primitive setting. The store had great selections and prices. Staff was very helpful in information about things to do in the surrounding areas. Equipment was top notch and easy to use on the river. One if the best trips we have had. Highly recommend. Bath house was clean.

We have come here several times to paddle the Hiwassee. You can't beat the location! However, every time we come we see something else that has not been fixed. The ladies room is awful! Simple things like fixing locks on the bathroom stalls or replacing the broken hot water handle in the shower (cold shower anyone?) or even killing a...

We just got back from a 3 day camping trip to float the Hiwassee. I have a separate review of the Outfitters but wanted to add this one for the campground. There's a saying about places like this... you get what you pay for. Dogs barking constantly, lots of kids (not a bad thing, just everywhere) music and talking way...

We arrived and a group was camped on our site that we had reserved one month in advance. That was resolved when we returned from our kayak trip after a short wait. Not that big of a deal. We rented the inflatable kayaks that seemed to be in good shape. The equipment was good and we really enjoyed ourselves. Everyone...

When we arrived at the campground we found that HO had no record of our campsite or boat rentals despite two different calls to confirm our reservation. We waited for about an hour for boats to be available. The HO employee did not know which bus to send our group to.The bus driver had to be asked to get out...

Our group has been using HO for YEARS! We rent a large portion of the campground for the weekend and raft once. As far as I know we've never had any issues. The bathrooms get pretty rough during the day (as is expected for the type of business) but are regularly cleaned so no complaints. The staff has always been...

What a great day my family and friends had rafting on the Hiwassee River. It is a very relaxing trip with a few swift currents and beautiful scenery suitable for all ages. The staff at Hiwassee Outfitters was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and made it a great experience. We will definitely be back. Grab a t-shirt while you're there.
