20 Fall Fun Ideas in the North Georgia Mountains – #17

rafting-on-occoeeeEven though fall in the North Georgia Mountains can be quite chilly, there is still some time for a little water fun!  My #17 idea for fall fun is rafting on the beautiful Ocoee River!  Bundle up and enjoy some fun and beauty on this amazing river.

Whitewater rafting is a fun experience from the beginning to the end.   When you are on the Ocoee,  you’ll feel the excitement as you enter a non-stop journey with over 20 continuous Class III and IV Rapids that drops an exhilarating 260 feet from start to finish. The Ocoee River is dam-controlled, so even in the driest months the water levels stay constant. You can also enjoy a 1½ – 2 hour trip through the beautiful and dramatic Ocoee Gorge in the Cherokee National Forest.

The Ocoee River offers two different sections of the river, the Upper Ocoee and the Middle Ocoee. Both sections have become popular with families and groups. There is NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY. They will provide all necessary equipment and each raft will have a trained guide that will be ready to take you on a journey down the Ocoee River.

There isn’t much time left though!  Book your fall trip from now till October 27th.  If you have never done it, you need to.  It is definitely a thrill of a lifetime and a great time with your friends and family!
