I went rafting on the Ocoee with my 12 year old daughter, my sister and her other half.

First off, Wildwater is an excellent company, with great guides, are safe and have lots of experience. My sister and her husband had a package deal with zip lining and meals included for a great rate. Always check for local deals.

The Ocoee river course was MUCH bigger and stronger than the Nantahala that we went on last year. Our guide Ashlee, told us that the water was running very high and very fast. She was not wrong!!

With a combination of class III and class IV rapids, the river is a challenge, but was sooooo much fun, quite exhilerating. Ashlee guided very professionally and we all felt safe. (Another company's raft had flipped right at the first rapids in front of our eyes, which was scary).

My daughter had a blast and wants to go again next year. Ashlee let us jump into the river for a short swim and glide down the river, which was also fun. She was certainly strong in getting me back on board!!!!

Overall, this river trip is not for the faint hearted, but is so much fun. Highly recommend it.

I won't reiterate all that is said below - but from check-in to check-out, everything was great. Staff was friendly. They were enthusiastic about what they were doing, and that it made it more fun for us. We did the combo trip and we would not change that. Andy was our guide and he was great. Very knowledgable and we learned a lot about the local history and terrain as we floated.

I was impressed by the facilities. Looked remodeled. Big, clean bathrooms with showers and changing areas. Good souvenir t-shirts to choose from! :)

We got some great pictures.

Will never use anyone else again. Ashlee was by far the best guide I've ever had on the Ocoee, and the organization and professionalism of the entire staff was amazing. From safety briefing to river experience to the on-site restaurant's excellent beer selection after the trip, hands-down the best in every way!

Great day! Our guide Jenna was so fun and it was an endurance adrenaline filled day! Great team. Ryan was so nice actually the whole group there from kitchen staff, photo,check in,bus drivers to the guides were friendly and professional. We know the guide personally but as our first trip there and after rafting with several companies I can honestly say I will recommend this company in the future.

Six friends and I rafted the middle section of the Ocoee River (TN) last weekend. I was a blast! The trip was the best organized I've ever been on, and the guide (Andy Wick) was awesome. He made it as much fun as it could possibly be, yet always keeping safety in mind. To top it off, the next day some of our group did a zipline canopy tour, also provided by Wildwater. It was amazing as well.
