The kids loved their first rafting experience! Even our youngster was delighted (7). Excellent value for the money. Beautiful place with little risks around. Cold waters! Good to think about bringing two pair of shoes when you get there. One pair is going to get really wet!! The facilities, equipment and the whole crew were great. We enjoyed our ride... More

It was our first time white water rafting. We had an excellent experience! The entire staff was very professional and friendly. Our guide, Stiles, was no exception. He was very thorough and obviously knew what he was doing and you could tell that he enjoyed his job. We had a great time and will definitely be back!!!

My husband and I decided to take a spur of the moment Whitewater Rafting trip and I am so happy that we stumbled across this outfitter.

The Rolling Thunder River Company is THE company to use when rafting on the Ocoee River. A bunch of these companies advertise 2 hour trips but not all of that is on the water. They really only spend 45 minutes to maybe an hour on that water. The rest of the time is spent traveling to and from the river... More

I love kayaking in the unsinkable kayaks. This way you do not have to worry about the children as much. Grandchildren loved it. Take the shorter ride long one is to long.

Sandi, kayaking on the Toccoa River is a blast for sure. It is perfect for grandparents and their little ones. I agree that the shorter ride is best for children as a general rule. Hope to see you on the river again. More

I've never done anything like this before and I am in my late 60's. I read where this is a class 4 white water rafting venue so was wondering if I was going to regret this trip.
