Owner description: Cherokee Rafting was one of the first companies to begin rafting the Ocoee River. 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.

My first experience with the Ocoee River is one that I will never forget - tops whitewater in Colorado! Our guide, Lance, was lively and knowledgeable, keeping us out of trouble while testing our abilities and making sure everyone was having a blast. The company seems to have an advantage with quality guides - especially Lance - each has years... More

It was my first time white water rafting and I loved it. Lance was our guide and he was very nice, friendly, and fun. He kept us under some small waterfalls making sure we got soaked, the water was cool, but is was a lot of fun. We did the upper river and it wasn't challenging at all.

Cherokee is hands-down, the best rafting company I've ever worked with. Blake and his team are well above the standard, and I would know- this was my 7th time rafting with a group. I brought 60 people. We were treated with the utmost respect and care. Our group had a blast. Also, on a side note, Josh is hilarious, personable,... More

Cherokee is the ONLY company that we will raft with. They are friendly and professional. The workers have always seemed to really put safety first, but make sure that everyone is having an awesome time. We have rafted with Cherokee 3 times and have never had a bad guide. Thank you!
