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

What a blast! We were dropping off our daughter at college and decided to go whitewater rafting at the last minute. I had no idea what company to go with, so I feel very lucky that I called Cherokee first. The guy on the phone was very friendly and took the time to give me detailed directions from our hotel...

We had never been white water rafting. We had the best time ever and are looking forward to going again. Cherokee Rafting was organized and professional they took the time to explain everything so we felt safe. Our tour guide Lance was so much fun!

This was the best trip down the Ocoee! If you want to experience the thrill of the river, go with Cherokee Rafting! We watched as other companies went "Around" the tough stuff, but Jake took us safely "THROUGH" the thrilling rapids!

My husband and I found excellent reviews for Cherokee Rafting, and they did not disappoint! Today we rafted with Big John, and he was wonderful! His primary concern was for our safety, which I was all about, and his secondary concern was for our entertainment, which my husband was all about! He was excellent at both! Thanks Cherokee Rafting for... More
