  • General Coffee State Park
    Amid cypress swamps and the gurgling waters of Seventeen-Mile River, anglers and nature enthusiasts alike can quiet their minds and enjoy the sunshine. While spending the nights at one of General Coffee State Park's 50 primitive campsites, visitors can spend the day with their line in the water, spotting gopher tortoises crawl through endangered plants in the wiregrass nearby. But there's also plenty to do besides fish. The onsite Heritage Farm, for instance, showcases the area's agricultural history with log cabins, a tobacco barn, a cane mill, and a corn crib, as well as friendly sheep, chickens, and pigs. To get the full rustic experience, campers can also roast hot dogs in a fire pit, draw water for their breakfast from the nearby spigots, and look up at the stars to find all the constellations they just made up.

  • High Country Outfitters
    In 1975, four friends with hearts full of the great outdoors decided they needed a place to get gear indoors. This quest for adventuring equipment lead Bubba Sloan, Gerald Marshall, Denny Mays, and Ned Buxton to found High Country Outfitters as a gear shop for all manner of activities performed under the sun. These days, Bubba runs the retail side of things in Buckhead, while Gerald continues to captain daring cruises down the Ocoee River's relentless rapids. The store kits out customers for safe communing with nature with tools and togs from manufacturers including The North Face, Patagonia, and Big Green Egg, whose verdantly painted smoker grill creates hot meals in the midst of a long trip or particularly boring wait in the airport. Meanwhile, guides lead expeditionary parties along on waterborne trips down the Middle and Upper Ocoee’s burbling banks, recapturing the sun-dappled fun that inspired the store's creation in the first place.

  • Catalyst Sports
    Skiing. Snowboarding. Canoeing. Rock climbing. Horseback riding. To someone with a physical disability, activities like these might seem impossible. Yet Eric Gray, founder of Catalyst Sports, has taught disabled individuals how to perform each one?plus a few others. At Catalyst, Eric and his team empower people to not only overcome physical disabilities, but also to thrive with them. The organization provides unique recreational opportunities to individuals of all ages and ability levels, including adaptive rock climbing programs. In fact, Catalyst has grown into the largest such adaptive climbing program in the country. It has done so, in large part, by hosting frequent events and fundraisers, which are far better ways to raise money than playing the same Roman numerals in the lottery every week.
