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

My good friend from High School Blake is the River Manager at Cherokee and he took excellent care of us. I expressed my fears and concerns to him and... More

I am the coordinator for an outdoor program at a major university. I have been down the Ocoee River with several rafting companies in the 8-plus years I've been in the field. Now, I only use Cherokee Rafting for our trips on the Ocoee. They are experienced, they keep you safe, and they do their best to make sure you... More

I was taking my three children ages 12,13,14 and three friends who had never been before. I can't say how all of the guides were, but I was... More

My wife and I went with brother-in-law and his wife on the Middle Ocoee section. We had a blast. Big John was our guide. We were wet and happy at the end.

This is my 4th year rafting with this company. Simply AWESOME!!!! The guides are great and very knowledgeable. Safety is priority for them which gives you peace of mind before the launch. The guides just don't take you down a 2 1/2 hour trip down the river, they let you experience a whole lot more, but that's a surprise I'll... More
