We rafted the Middle Ocoee and had a blast. Several good rapids, we were glad our guide Ryan knew the river so well.

This was our 2nd time rafting but the 1st time on the Ocoee. Our guide, Ryan, was great and the crew was too. We liked the way Cascade went down river as a team and watched each... read more

This was our 2nd time rafting but the 1st time on the Ocoee. Our guide, Ryan, was great and the crew was too. We liked the way Cascade went down river as a team and watched each raft to make sure everyone was safe and really had a great ride.

The rafting trip was a lot of fun. Our guide had a great personality and made the rafting even more enjoyable. Nothing fancy, but nice facilities with plenty of room to change, shower, lockers, etc. There is a restaurant as well. We stayed at a hotel in Cleveland TN which is about 15min away, and has a large selection of... More

Since this was our 1st time whitewater rafting, we did the Middle Ocoee Trip as recommended on the website. We had 3 members in our group, one of which was my 68 year old mother. I can not say enough good things about our river guide Brad and also the rest of Cascade Outdoors excellent and friendly staff! Brad patiently... More

This was my second time rafting down the Ocoee but my first time using Cascade Outdoors. My group had a lot of fun rafting and our guide knew about safety but I don't feel like we were "coached" as much as with the previous company we used. We had a guide from Nepal that we could barely understand as he... More

We did the Middle Ocoee run, with up to Class IV rapids. The river is beautiful, surrounded by woods. It was my first time, and the guides made sure we were safe and still had a blast. The cost is very reasonable, with the business investing in good boats and good guides. I highly recommend it for a fun morning... More

Because the other couple who signed up didn't show up, my boyfriend and I were the only two on the raft along with our guide Dakota, and we had a lot of fun "rafting" (gotta be honest, pretty sure my rowing didn't do anything constructive). Dakota was very friendly and did a lot to make sure we enjoyed our time,... More

This is the second Labor Day weekend that our family of 6 has rafted with Cascade. They are fantastic! The guides are fun and knowledgeable. We were always safe yet felt like we were living on the wide side. We raft the Middle Ocoee and absolutely love the adventure on the river. Kip and his crew are a true gem.... More

Cascade is one of the smallest (of 21 outfitters for rafting the Ocoee), but definitely the BEST! The owner, Kip, was there to see greet all of us personally. All of Cascades guides are very experienced, not only with whitewater rafting, but rafting this specific river. Because Cascade is a smaller company, our trip never felt rushed. We took the... More
