No other river in the east offers the degree of challenge, variety and consistent water flow that is found here. In fact, the Ocoee has been rated one of the ten best whitewater rivers in the country by Canoe Magazine. It has been chosen as the site of national whitewater championships on several occasions as well as home of the 1996 Olympic Whitewater competition.
