Raft the Ocoee (Cleveland)

Raft the Ocoee (Cleveland)

The Ocoee River, just 30 miles north of Chattanooga, offers plenty of whitewater rafting action. The 5 mile Middle Ocoee section starts at Ocoee Dam #2 and includes Class III and Class IV rapids with highlights such as Table Saw and Powerhouse. The Upper Ocoee’s claim to fame is that it was featured in the 1996 Olympic canoe and kayak course- watch out for Humongous.
