For river deep, mountain high attractions head to Ocoee

A favorite among outdoor enthusiasts, Ocoee is a small mountain community in Polk County, East Tennessee. Get your next Tennessee adventure off to a roaring start and book an Ocoee vacation rental on the fringes of the Chattahoochee National Forest. Ride the wild rapids of the Ocoee River, hike the trails of Sugarloaf Mountain, or visit the legendary Benton Falls. After an active day, embrace the Deep South cuisine and feast on traditional barbecue, or relax with a glass of fine whiskey from the local Chattanooga distillery.

The Ocoee River - Mother Nature's whirlpool

A Ocoee vacation is all about embracing Mother Nature's great and glorious outdoors. Popular with outdoor enthusiasts, try the hair-raising fun of wildwater rafting or tubing down the frenzied waters of the Ocoee River. If you prefer to get muddy rather than wet, head to Sugarloaf Mountain Park. This rugged forest has more than 15 miles of hiking and biking trails, plus picnic areas and shady glades perfect for an afternoon snooze. As the sun sets, head back to your Ocoee vacation rental and relax on the deck with a local brew.

Do go chasing waterfalls in the Ocoee River

It's all about natural attractions here in Tennessee. A big draw to the region is the Ocoee River, a 93-mile long river that flows through the southern Appalachian Mountains. It's home to the Ocoee Whitewater Center, near Ducktown, which was famously the site of the 1996 Atlanta Olympics whitewater events. Another key attraction is Benton Falls, a charming 65-foot waterfall. It's a short leisurely trek from the Chilhowee Recreation Center to the falls. Stop off for a picnic or a cool off with a swim in the crystal waters of Clear Creek.

Leafing la vida loca - leaf peeping in fall

For outdoors adventurers, there's never a bad time to visit the Ocoee region. The busiest time of year is during the warm summer months. Days are dry and sunny, and temperatures regularly reach the mid-80s. Come winter, the days get shorter, the mercury drops to around 25-30 degrees, and the area sees plenty of rainfall. Fall is the second-most popular time to visit, when the colorful leaf peeping season draws the crowds. For the widest choice of Ocoee vacation rentals, come in winter or spring, but remember to pack a jacket.

Take the Chattanooga Choo Choo to the Chattahoochee Forest

Perched on the western fringes of the Chattahoochee National Forest, Ocoee is a small town 40 miles east of Chattanooga. Its prime location next to the forest means it's blessed with hundreds of miles of rugged hiking and biking trails, and abundant wildlife. One of the easier hikes is to Benton Waterfall. Meet the otters who call the Ocoee River home, or come face-to-face with the black bears and white-tailed deer that roam the forest. There's also a visitors' center where you can book a variety of guided and self-guided hikes.
