About the Park
These internationally-recognized white water sites are well known for their scenic beauty and recreational opportunities.
Floating, canoeing and rafting constitute the major attraction for both the Hiwassee and Ocoee Rivers. Based on the International Scale of River Difficulty, the rivers have Class I, II, III, IV and V rapids. While both locations are exceptional white water settings, users should be aware that even placid looking streams are potentially hazardous for those unskilled and unfamiliar with the basic techniques of floating or water safety.
Hiwassee/Ocee Scenic River State Park is home to the Gee Creek, which is a 47-site primitive tent campground. Each site a table, fire ring and grill. Adjacent is the Gee Creek Wilderness of the Cherokee National Forest.
