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.

I cannot say enough good things about our experience with Cherokee Rafting. The whole process, from booking our reservations online to changing out of our water-soaked clothes after our trip, exceeded our expectations. Jordan was, without a doubt, THE BEST guide we could have asked for. He made the trip so much fun. We spent the bus ride back to... More

If you want a rafting company that has very professional guides that are as much fun as they are professional, look no further. The accommodation's are excellent (gift shop, showers, etc.). Our guide, Ross, was incredible and I would ask for him again on our next visit. Simply said, just an awesome experience!

I would highly recommend Cherokee Rafting to anyone wanting to experience the Ocoee to the max! Having been rafting down the Ocoee 3 previous times probably 20 plus years ago, I thought it time to go again. I had never done upper Ocoee so made this trip an Upper and Middle hoping to experience more and try and recall the... More

It was the best experience that I had in this trip. The price is very good and the guides are very friendly. Also, at the end of the trip you can have 20 photos on CD for just $20! I totally recommend Cherokee rafting.

I've been rafting a few times and never really got into it. These guys had a great set-up with very professional staff. Our guide, Lance, was the man. He made the whole experience better than the times I've been in the past. Funny, got us into the good spots, and let us have fun while we were on the boat.... More

Visited Ocoee, TN for a Memorial Day adventure. There were many rafting companies to choose from, but I chose Cherokee Rafting because of the high ratings. When we arrived, the staff was very personable & prompt. We were out to the rapids in no time. Our guide was the best (Lance). My group split onto two rafts; the others said... More

These guys def live up to their reviews. I spent a day reading the reviews on all the rafting companies before choosing Cherokee and all signs pointed to Cherokee clearly! The Cherokee site is simple and sweet and their equipment was good. They claim to serve a catered lunch and it was fantastic! Sweet tea, peel me and eat me... More
