The Hiwassee/Ocoee Scenic River State Park is a 23-mile stretch of river, the first such to be designated by the State Scenic River Program. This stretch of river offers canoeing, rafting, fishing, hiking and nature photography. A scenic portion of the John Muir trail winds through the river gorge. Numerous public access sites provide boat-launching ramps. At the Gee Creek campround, picnic areas, sanitary facilities and primitive camping are available. Adjacent is the Gee Creek Wilderness of the Cherokee National Forest. The Ocoee River is a premier whitewater river, with Class III, IV, and V rapids. Access sites are maintained.

Based on the international scale of river difficulty, Hiwassee State Scenic River is primarily Class I (moving water with small waves, few obstructions) and Class II (easy rapids with wide, clear channels; some maneuvering required). Certain sections may be considered Class III (rapids with high waves capable of swamping an open canoe; requires complex maneuvering). The Hiwassee/Ocoee Scenic River State Park is also a popular fishing stream. The Gee Creek primitive tent campground has 47 campsites, adjacent to the Gee Creek Wilderness of the Cherokee National Forest.
