Key things to keep in mind

  • You will get wet
  • The minimum age to raft the Ocoee River is 12 years old
  • The Middle section of the Ocoee is 5 miles of rafting and you will be with us for approximately 3 hours
  • The Combo trip (Upper and Middle sections) is 10 miles of rafting and you will be with us for approximately 5.5 hours with a energy refuel break in between the two sections
  • The Ocoee River is dam controlled but Mother Nature can impact our flow of water
  • We will raft rain or shine
  • No experience is needed
  • We will do our best to keep groups together, but due to raft capacity we may have the need to split groups up on occasion. We appreciate your understanding.

What to bring

  • You will want to leave your valuables at home or be sure to lock them securely in your vehicle
  • You can bring a towel for after the trip but please leave towels, bags, water bottles, and sunscreen in the car
  • Sunglasses can be worn on the river but we recommend having a strap so you don't lose them in the mighty rapids
  • Hats will typically fit under the helmet
  • Any medication that you may need while on the river (Epi-pen, insulin, inhaler, etc)

What to wear

  • Summer Months
    • Clothes you don't mind getting wet; shorts, shirts, bathing suits.
    • Shoes or sandals that you can secure to your feet (old sneakers, river shoes or sandals)
    • Bring a dry outfit to change into after rafting because you will get wet
  • Spring and Fall
    • Cotton is not your friend. Any synthetic material will keep you warmer than cotton, even if it is wet. We recommend fleece, wool, polypropylene
    • Shoes or sandals that you can secure to your feet (old sneakers, river shoes or sandals)
    • Bring a dry change of clothes, and might want to consider something warm and cozy like a fleece or sweatshirt.

If you are bringing anyone under the age of 18 please print the 'Under 18 Waiver' and have it signed by a parent or guardian if they will not be going on the trip before arriving. Over 18 will have to sign a waiver at the Outpost upon checking in.
