The name Ocoee has its roots in the Cherokee name for the Purple Passion Flower (Passiflora incarnata) which is the Tennessee state wildflower. The Cherokee referred to the Passion Vine as "ocoee" where "oco" refers to the plant, and “ee” describes the location. The word “ocoee” literally means the apricot vine place, and today, the beautiful Ocoee River and Ocoee Valley get its Cherokee name from this flowering plant.
While the Ocoee River does indeed flow north of the Tennessee/Georgia border, the river originates south of the border more than 30 miles and during this stretchy, the river is the Toccoa. And yes, the Cherokees had a say. You see, the Ocoee and Toccoa Rivers are the same river, with one name south of the border, and another north of the border. These two names are the names for this single 93-mile-long river that flows northwestward from the Aska Adventure Area in Georgia, through Lake Blue Ridge and towards the border towns of McCaysville, Georgia and Copperhill, Tennessee. Once the river flows north of the river, it becomes the Ocoee River, and it continues along its way to create some of the best whitewater experiences in the Eastern States, as well as fantastic fishing, and beautiful vacation cabin rentals.
