Description: Cherokee Rafting was one of the first companies to begin rafting the Ocoee...
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.

Had a great day on a beautiful river through a glorious forest with Caleb and Cherokee Rafting. Though it's his Caleb rookie season, he expertly guided our boat safely and professional through the boiling drops and rapids of the Ocoee River. Cherokee is a professional outfit that gives you plenty of leeway in an adrenaline sport but keeps a watchful... More

We had a great time on the river and felt very safe with our first time guide Caleb. He gave us the royal treatment by intentionally flipping us in the Rapids.

Cherokee Rafting, and our guide Alycia, was a professional outfit that focused on safety and fun. I would recommend them highly!

This was one of my "all time favorite experiences"!! I would highly recommend Cherokee Rafting as your next adventure. The guides are amazing, knowledgeable, and fun! It was more fun than I could possibly put into words. If you are looking for an experience that you and your family will never forget, than choose Cherokee Rafting! It was a BLAST!

We have used Cherokee Rafting since the early 90's and they have never disappointed us. The guides are all great. This year we had Holly, Ryan, and Alycia! We would recommend any of them. I have done the FULL River the last 6 years and this year we got some bonus time and a "Mystery Float" (the mystery was where... More

This trip down the middle Ocoee was a much better experience than my first one. Our guide, Aaron, was amazing. I highly recommend anyone looking to take a trip down the river to have him in your boat. I had some (ok, a lot) of anxiety about falling out of the boat. He did his absolute best to make sure...

Cherokee does it First Class!!. I have rafted several rivers around the US and this is one of classiest operations I have experienced. First trip for my son and wife. They we ready to go again. Even though this our guide's first year, Caleb was outstanding. He gave us all the thrills, yet was very conscious about safety. Highly recommend.

After a great trip down the middle last summer with Cherokee, we decided to do the full river trip this year. Lance was so awesome last year that we requested he be our guide again and he did a great job! We had a large group of 7 and Cherokee took care of us. Lance's experience on the river will... More
