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.

Cherokee Rafting was great to work with in planning our church rafting trip. They were always friendly and informative whenever we contacted them. The whitewater rafting trip was terrific, enhanced by their skilled guides. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip and are looking forward to doing it again.

This was our family's first time white water rafting. Ages of the kids are 18, 16 and 12. Our river guide Lance was fantastic. The river and surrounding scenery was beautiful. Lance gave clear paddling instructions and he purposefully got us "stuck" in a few rapids so the freezing water doused us - all in good fun. Not one of... More

It was our first white water rafting trip ever. We had a lot of fun with our guide Steve. This trip had amazing views and really exhilarating rafting. We can't wait to go again.

For my boyfriends birthday I decided to plan a surprise trip to the Ocoee river to go rafting! Either one of us had ever gone rafting before so we weren't sure what to expect! To start off there is a time difference that I failed to fit into the big plan... So we called Cherokee rafting & asked if it... More

My son, Dallin and I had an awesome experience. Cherokee Rafting, especially Blake and our guide Cory did a fabulous job. The rapids were the best I have been on and Cory was able to give us a great overview of rafting and share with us his passion for the river and, despite having a boat full of strangers, he... More

For my boyfriends birthday I decided to plan a surprise trip to the Ocoee river!! Either one of us had never been rafting before, so we weren't entirely sure what to expect!

This was a great outfit to raft with. Very professional. Had a great gift shop, too! This was our 12 year old daughter's first time rafting. Lance was our guide and he was GREAT! He was extremely experienced (been a rafting guide since 1987!) and knew just how to make it fun and exciting, but not over the top scary... More

Rafting the Ocoee has been on my "Bucket List" for a very long time. I decided this was the year! Two of my sons and two other family members came with me. I really wanted to "make a life long memory" for each of us, and drilled down on over half of the Ocoee rafting providers before deciding on Cherokee.... More

We recently used the Cherokee Rafting Company and had a great experience. The staff was very friendly and informative, and our guide, Lance, was just plain awesome! I felt very safe due to his competence and thoroughly enjoyed his sense of humor!
