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

I have been rafting once before but this by far was the best experience ever. I have never laughed so hard in my laugh. Lance was an amazing guide and he made sure that we were having a great time! Ask for Lance every single time!

The water was great and our guide, Lance, was incredible! He knew the river very well and gave us a fun and entertaining trip through all the best parts of the river! I have used Cherokee Rafting multiple times and am always impressed with the experience, but I must say, this was the best one yet thanks to Lance!

Cherokee is the best there is on the river. I have brought around 50 teens/adults every year for the past 20 years and never once wanted or needed to look at another company. They make everything easy and provide the best experience on (and off) the river. Their guides are quick to become friends with our group, and our students... More

I have been rafting with Cherokee at least ten times and each year has been incredible! As a youth minister, I have now taken my students 4 times and the trips provide stories that we can talk about all year long! Working with Blake and the office staff has always been an enjoyable experience, the guides are some of the... More

We went rafting on the 29 of September. After much review I choose this company based on the great reviews. Our guide was Jacob, and for my first rafting trip did an AMAZING job. I highly recommend this company and the WHITE WATER GRILL! Go with them, they are not only the cheapest, but the best!

It's raining and bleak, 144 sorority women have anticipated their trip of whitewater rafting since the spring, and now the day has finally come. We are cold, we are soaked, and most importantly we are terrified. A few of the braver and more adventurous women (myself included) decided that this was a go big or go home moment, and we... More
