The Ocoee River Corridor is an underrated outdoor destination for anyone in the Southeast region of the US and beyond. This area is just a few hours from Atlanta, Chattanooga, or Knoxville and is widely recognized for having America's best whitewater. The Ocoee is a fantastic getaway for travelers, families and groups of all ages and abilities. You will find a wide range of rafting levels, from sections great for peaceful float trips to areas full of thrilling class III, IV and even V rapids. These unique characteristics put it on the global stage when it hosted the 1996 Atlanta Olympics Kayak and Canoe Slalom, making it the world's only natural Olympic river!

After the river, the Ocoee Corridor has several opportunities to relax or find even more adventures. Explore tubing float trips along the Lower Ocoee, fishing excursions on the Toccoa River, hiking and biking in Cherokee National Forest, camping at one of several stunning campsites, and lake lounging on Parksville Lake, all within a short drive of each other.
