Owner description: 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.

“Cow-a-bunga!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

Our youth group has taken a trip to Ocoee every summer for the past 15 years. We use Cherokee every year and would not use any other company. They are fantastic...they go out of their way to take care of us, make it easy to bring large groups, guides are fun, and they give the best trip down the river.

“Upper and Middle River Adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Our family decided to do the Ocoee River again 20 years after our first trip almost to the day. The river sure was full of rafts but that did not hinder our fun in the least. We all had a great time. Our guide, Chad, did a fine job making the trip a blast and he also did not hold back on any of the bumps!! His 15 years of experience as a guide was obvious and the key to a wonderful safe adventure. There are lot's of raft companies on the river and your choices are many. I believe Cherokee is the best and Chad is the guide to get. Don't miss out on a great time by booking one of the other companies. Cherokee is the go to outfit!

“Great trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

It was a great trip despite the thunderstorms. We did the whole river. The rapids were great and there were lots of them. The whole trip didn't have a minute of boredom. Our guide Big John was very professional and very funny. I will do it again, very soon.

“Amazing as Always!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

I've taken the trip down middle river 4 times -- 3 of which was with Cherokee Rafting. The Ocoee is one of my favorite places to do whitewater and it's such a great course with some great back to back Class III and IV rapids! If you are looking for thorough guides that LOVE their job, are laid back and are willing to Surf the hyrdrolics (Thanks Mac)! Then you've got the right company. Cherokee Rafting has always had great, energetic employees. Booking was quick and easy. I'll ABSOLUTELY return again -- great prices, good people and AMAZING time. Thanks guys. Oh and Katie Summers always saves the day somehow...
