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.

If you are trying to pick between rafting companies on the Ocoee river, look no further. These guys are experienced and love what they do! If you can get Lance or Katie as guides, do it! They know every bend and rapid of that river and will make sure you enjoy every minute! Affordable and worth every penny!

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.
