We traveled here to hike and enjoy nature with our two school age children and the grandparents. A couple of hours were spent crossing the suspension bridge and then walking along the Old Copper Road Trail. It was flat, lovely, with several areas to dip...More

On the way to North Carolina and stopped here for a while. Enjoyed the museum, watching the rafters, hiking the trails, and the scenery. Hope to return in the near future.

Great scenery lots of trees. Plenty to see on the walk. Great walk during any season. Weekends kayakers and rafters to watch on the weekends.

This is a great stop when the Ocoee River is flowing. There are times when the river is not flowing but when the TVA releases the dam, it's a playground for rafters and kayakers. It's very busy when the rafting companies are in the area...More

The trip through TN and GA was and an amazing trip with an unexpected stop by the Ocee Whitewater Center where they held the Olympic Whitewater events. I would suggest the drive through here for anyone.

Glorious trails set among the trees and Ocoee River. The building is surprisingly spacious with excellent photo opportunities all over. A nice paved path follows the river and it's easy to picture in your mind's eye all the Olympic competitors and spectators many years ago....More

I have been to this site for many years and it is one of my favorite stops along the river. The creek bed isn't natural, but was re-routed and shaped for olympic competition, but it is still very impressive. The Ocoee River, if you don't...More
