White Water Rafting in Tennessee


OCOEE RIVER – PIGEON RIVER trip_tenn_river Top Tennessee white water rafting trips can be found on the Pigeon River and on the Middle and Upper Ocoee Rivers.
The Ocoee River is located one hour north of Atlanta, Georgia and is one of the most popular rivers east of the Mississippi. The Ocoee River is a dam controlled river with scheduled releases from March to November. Divided into two runs, the UpperOcoeeRiver’s “Olympic Run” (Class IV+) offers white water rafting thrills for more advanced rafters while the Middle Section (Class III-IV) is ideal for beginner to intermediate rafters.
The Pigeon River is located just outside of Smokey Mountain National Park and forms the border between Tennessee and North Carolina. The Pigeon River is mostly Class III (beginner) with a couple of Class IV rapids and is an increasingly popular whitewater rafting destination for beginner to intermediate rafting enthusiasts.
