TripAdvisor offered a list of the top 20 White Water Rafting Trips in the U.S. this week. 

The Ocoee River and Quest Expeditions were featured on the list.

From the article:


From high-energy rapids to laid-back river floats, we’re on a mission to find the best white water rafting trips in the USA. This is choose-your-own-adventure, whether you want to perfect your river surfing skills, or just hit the water for sun and swimming. Not that summertime’s the only time to head to the river. America’s best white water rafting is powered by melting snow, dam releases, and year-round rivers, so you can find the perfect white water adventure for any month. Ready, set, paddle.

On the Ocoee experience:

Take on challenging Class III and Class IV rapids on the Ocoee River, one of the best white water rafting destinations in Tennessee, and you’ll splash through the heart of the southern Appalachian Mountains. Warm river water makes it even more fun to paddle through roller coaster waves and churning drops, with a long season that stretches all the way from March through October.

Quest Expeditions has 280 reviews and an “excellent” rating on the TripAdvisor site. The outfitter is located at 281 Highway 64 in Ocoee and offers both middle, upper-only and full Ocoee rafting experiences.

The outfitter is “dedicated to providing you a quality white water experience with lots of fun and personal service.”

Other regional white water experiences mentioned include McCaysville, Georgia, Hartford, Tennessee and Bryson City, North Carolina.
