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.

We had so much fun going down the ocoee river again this year! Our guide, Tucker, informed us it's his first year which I find hard to believe because he sure knew what he was doing! We will definitely be back next year to do the entire thing instead of the middle!!! Woo Hoo!!!!

Was our first time going down the ocoee. Was very nervous at first. Our guide Caleb was great. Caleb made us feel like pro's with the instructions he gave us to guide our raft. Kept us all in the boat, until we we wanted to get out. We all had a great time. Was very convient to book online.

We had a great time with our guide Aaron! We did a half day trip down the lower part of the river. He was very knowledgeable of the river and very funny. We are planing to go back next summer and do the full day experience down the river! I would highly recommend Cherokee Rafting for your next trip.

The most fun I've had in east tennessee! I've been down this river before, but not like this! Our guide Tucker (highly recomended) made every effort possible to keep us having an excellent time! Please, if you wanna raft book with these guys and you will not be disappointed!

Caleb was awesome!!!! As a mom with two teenage kids, I was nervous because we'd never gone whitewater rafting. Caleb made sure we didn't fall out! It was the most fun we've ever had! The pictures are great. Take dry clothes and shoes to change into.

My boyfriend and I conquered our fears of the river with the fantastic team at Cherokee Rafting. We had the pleasure of being guided by Caleb, who did an awesome time guiding us down the river. Wether you're a first timer, or have been rafting many times, Cherokee Rafting is the obvious choice!
