When is the best time to go rafting?
The best answer? Anytime you can.
Each season offers a new and different experience.
Spring season (March-May) is uncrowned and full of beautiful days with budding trees and warming weather. Spring rains can bring higher water levels which create a more intense rafting trip.
Summer (June-August) is hot, lively, and is a party on the river (good clean fun). You will see lots of people out enjoying the refreshing river five days a week (Thursday - Monday). Need I say more.
Early fall (September) is known for its great weekend rafting. You are not quite ready for summer to be over. Come enjoy the warm/hot September weekends on the beautiful and refreshing Ocoee. The larger groups are gone leaving these great days for smaller groups and families.
Late fall, October, is known as the secret season on the Ocoee. It's when you are trying to squeeze the last drops of summer play before Old Man Winter returns. The leaves are beginning to turn stunning colors and the mountain light glimmers on the water. The crowds are gone, it is a soulful and reflective time on the water.
