Ocoee River Corridor
Helpful Ocoee &
Hiwassee River Maps
The Ocoee River Corridor, set in the picturesque Appalachian Mountains in southeast Tennessee, is packed with fun, including whitewater rafting, mountain biking, hiking, fishing, boating, and swimming. It is known as America’s favorite whitewater, but did you know that it is one of the most affordable outdoor destinations for authentic family and friends adventure getaways, too?
The corridor is a 93-mile stretch starting in Georgia, where the Ocoee River is called the Toccoa until it crosses the state line. There it becomes the Ocoee River. The river continues until it meets the Hiwassee River, which flows into the Tennessee River.
The Tennessee Valley Authority regulates the Toccoa and Ocoee Rivers with multiple dams that guarantee consistent, warm water releases all season long, making the Ocoee River Corridor a spectacular adventure destination.
There are many activities suitable for everyone in your group. Love action? Go whitewater rafting on the Upper or Middle Ocoee River sections. Want to explore the lush forest? Cherokee National Forest has over 100 trails suitable for hiking or birding. The Tanasi Trail System has exceptional biking and hiking trails that follow the Ocoee River. Want to cast a line? Wild trout, rainbow, brown, and native brookies are present in most mountain streams. Looking for a relaxing float trip? The Toccoa or Hiwassee has you covered. The Ocoee River Corridor offers a diverse range of activities and experiences to suit any interest.
