Ocoee River Guidebook

These Ocoee Guidebooks are Intended Primarily for Raft Guide Trainees

Ocoee Raft Guiding 101 and 102

This Ocoee River Guidebook for Raft Guide Trainees is geared towards rafting the basic lines and learning the names of rapids. Many first year guides struggle learning the rapid names and lines. The Middle Ocoee Guidebook is intended as a training manual or cliff notes to help trainees aspiring to become rookie guides on the Middle Ocoee. The Upper Ocoee Guidebook shows the major rapids of the Upper Ocoee with easier rapids omitted. Rapids are presented in the same order you will encounter them on the river.

Ocoee River Guidebooks for Rafters

Many guides and raft companies apparently exaggerate the class rating of rapids. The ratings you find below are the actual International Scale of River Difficulty ratings of Middle Ocoee rapids according to the leading authority American Whitewater for normal flows between 1,200 and 1,600 cubic feet per second. Some rapids do become more difficult at higher flows. Commercial trips are not permitted to put on above 3,000 cfs.

I can often be found playing or working on the Ocoee River in East Tennessee.

If you find this guide helpful please consider donating a beer! I may create an Upper Ocoee River Guide as well based upon the feedback and beer I receive.
