History on the Ocoee River
Ocoee Adventure Company Purchases 2nd Ocoee Outpost
In early 2002, the Ocoee Adventure Company purchased their second Ocoee outpost from USA Raft, a company which at that time had seven outposts in three states. For the outpost’s first season we operated under the name “USA Raft Ocoee”. To ensure a smooth transition for our customers, reservations were taken by USA Raft at their main reservation center in West Virginia through early spring. However, the “same but different” name idea was confusing to our vendors and customers, so in 2003, we began the search for a new name to express who we are… and Big Frog Expeditions was launched!
The USA Raft traditions remain strong at the Ocoee outpost operated in a very similar fashion as before – BUT with the added expertise of an on-site seasoned local outpost manager named Rob Benson, who is a 26 year river veteran and a well-known face on the Ocoee River Tennessee. Rob wears many ‘hats’ for our company as well as running the Big Frog Outpost. He strives to ensure the best for all of his guests and staff by providing a positive and up beat atmosphere that all can enjoy. Rob has lived his lifetime here and loves to share the Southeast Tennessee experience with everyone!
We are constantly making improvements to the campground and outpost to ensure that your outdoor experience meets up to everyone’s expectations! Spacious fields to play in, pre set tent camping, and the woods will make you feel like you are in the heart of the mountains.
