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.

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!

Our rafting guide was also great... worked hard to make sure we hit the fun rapids while keeping everyone safe. He was also very entertaining! Overall a great value too as prices were very reasonable for a 2-3hr... More

I am not much of a thrill seeker. However I decided that it was time to raft down the Ocoee being that I have lived in this area my entire life! 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
