Plan Your Ocoee River Rafting Trip
There are plenty of other activities besides rafting! The Ocoee River Corridor is located at the edge of the Blue Ridge Mountains and deep in the Cherokee National Forest. Biking and hiking trails, world-class fly fishing on area rivers and streams, lake recreation, campgrounds, and leisurely float trips for ages 3+ are also available to first time travelers and avid outdoor enthusiasts. This remarkable area entices visitors with its awe-inspiring beauty, varied adventure experiences, and welcome affordability. Note that Ocoee River rafting never runs on Tuesdays or Wednesdays, so these are perfect days to plan to do other activities in the area.

Where is the Ocoee River Corridor?
Outdoor Recreation Hub of Southeastern TN
The Ocoee River flows southeast to northwest from Copperhill, TN, to Benton, TN, and then merges into the Hiwassee River. It’s an easy half-day drive or less from these southeastern metro areas: Atlanta, Nashville, Birmingham, Asheville, Chattanooga, and Knoxville. The Ocoee River Corridor is an exceptional outdoor recreation area including the Ocoee River, Cherokee National Forest, Hiwassee River, and Chilhowee Recreation Area. Authentic, small Tennessee towns like Ducktown, Benton, Ocoee, Cleveland, Reliance, and Copperhill – and Copperhill’s sister town McCaysville in Georgia – offer visitors a welcome slower pace and time for deep connections.
