Our company started in 1978 as a family-run operation, and still running strong today. Guests love our rough cut, hand-constructed outpost/store located along Hwy 64 just outside of the Cherokee National Forest and Chilhowee Mtn. Our goal is that every guest of Cherokee Rafting will leave with the desire to return with family and friends. We specialize in all sizes and types of groups, including: church youth and young-at-heart groups, association groups like scout troops and rotary clubs, in addition to business team-building groups. « less

Our family went down the middle Ocoee section and our guide was Tyler. If you want to have the time of your life I suggest you do so with Cherokee. There are many companies to choose from, but their knowledge of the river is amazing and you will have a blast!! Thanks so much Blake for the best family vacation... More

Had such a blast! Everyone was so great and so much fun! We can't wait to go back next year to enjoy the awesome rafting and staff again! They were also very knowledgable about the river... Past and present. Our guide (Jordan.. Wawhoo) answered every question we threw at him!

We went on a sunny morning and had so much fun we went back on a raining Friday afternoon. The misty rain allowed us to have the river to ourselves and see the beautiful smokey mountains at their best. We had the same guide both days and he was great!! The whole crew at Cherokee stuck together, help other guides... More

Just want to thank Cherokee Rafting for a great time. The reason why we chose Cherokee Rafting was because of the great reviews. We decided to give them a shot, glad we did. Drove up from South Florida to raft the Ocoee river, what a blast. Our family ranging from 13 to 65 years old had a fantastic time. The... More

Outstanding outfitter, Jordan guided our group to an awesome ride down the river, he went beyond our expectations to assure us a great time, Cherokee may not be the biggest outfitter but definitely #1 in our book ... already booked return trip with Jordan.

Fed us an amazing lunch and created memories that will last a lifetime. Cant... More

We had a group of 14. (7 veterans 7 rookies) Everyone has a blast and our Guides Patrick, Dominic, and Josh were well trained and very knowledgable about the River. Patrick was our guide and I personally had the best trip ever. Cherokee has the best guides on the Ocoee and Blake, Mrs. Judy & Mr. John treat us like... More

Our family drove 3 hours from Birmingham on Saturday and it was well worth the drive. We were lucky to have Josh as our guide for the upper level With over 20 years of experience as a guide for Cherokee, he was the ultimate professional that combined fun without ever compromising safety. I can't imagine anyone would regret using Cherokee... More

Our youth group has been rafting the river every summer for the past 25 years. We always use Cherokee. They are the best...from reservations to check-in to on the river, they go out of their way to give us an easy and personal experience. We bring almost 50 people every year, and they make it a blast. My favorite thing... More
