Guests are invited to enjoy a fun day of kayaking down the Ocoee River!  Kayaking trips include shuttle service to the local boat ramp at Sugar Loaf Mountain State Park and are offered 6 days a week April through September. We equip you with kayaks, paddles, and required life vests for all guests 50+ lbs. (Guests under 50 lbs will need to provide their own USCG approved life vest and the life vest must be shown to the shuttle driver prior to departure from the farm).   From Sugar Loaf you will paddle your way down river and back to Ocoee Riverside Farm where you will find an easy river exit via our own boat ramp.  PLEASE BE AWARE that we are at the mercy of both Mother Nature as well as local dams that are controlled by TVA with regard to river flow.  We monitor both closely and, as a result, must sometimes make changes to the departure schedule.

  • Trip down river takes approximately 2.5 hrs
  • No solo kayakers; singles must add Guide to trip
  • Weight limit: child kayak 90 lbs. and adult kayak 275 lbs.
  • Small children may ride tandem with adult as long as max weight limit for kayak is not exceeded
  • Swimsuits or comfortable clothing acceptable
  • Tennis shoes or water shoes; NO BARE FEET OR FLIP FLOPS
