Approximate Driving Time: 40 Minutes
Take Hwy 515 North out of Ellijay toward Blue Ridge, GA. Travel about 15 miles and in Blue Ridge take a left at the McDonalds intersection onto GA Hwy 5 North, toward McCaysville, GA. (United Community Bank is on the right, Arby’s and Zaxby’s is on the left just before the McDonalds intersection).
Go approximately 10 miles on Hwy 5 North. The road will end at a 3-way stop in McCaysville, GA. Turn left at the 3-way stop and you will then be on TN Hwy 68 North. Go about 3 miles and be looking for the Hwy 64 exit. This is your land mark, you will need to pass the Hwy 64 exit. DO NOT TAKE THE EXIT. Pass it and look for the first immediate entrance on the right. The entrance is about 2/10 of a mile just beyond the Hwy 64 exit.
We share the entrance with the Tennessee Department of Transportation. You will see a green sign as you approach the entrance that says TN Dept of Transportation and when you get to the entrance there is a blue sign that says Ocoee Rafting Entrance. When you turn into the entrance, you need to keep right up the hill. This will bring you to the Ocoee Rafting Center outpost. Our entrance is across the street from the Ducktown Copper Inn and the Express Video & Tan.
