Hiwassee Outfitters, Inc., is the leading outdoor recreation destination in the Cherokee National Forest. We specialize in rafting on the Hiwassee River. Our campground and retail store make our facilities the only destination where you can have it all in one place.

Areas of Service and Expertise

Hiwassee Outfitter's store is your one-stop shop for all your outdoor needs! We have a restaurant, camping supplies, snacks, clothing, books, and souvenirs.

Also, come camp with Hiwassee Outfitters in our large wooded campground offering 40 individual camping sites! Each site is equipped with picnic tables and fire rings, and some sites have electrical hookups that can accommodate motor homes (bring your 110 V adapter). Many sites are located directly on the Hiwassee River with some located on Ellis Creek. All sites have direct access to the river for swimming and fishing. In addition, we offer a recently remodeled bathhouse with hot showers and flush toilets. For your additional entertainment, we have a volleyball court and a basketball goal. If you forget anything on your trip, we stock all the essentials and then some in our Outfitter's Store. Our lodging ranges from rustic to deluxe, so roughing it doesn't have to be quite so rough.
