Cherokee Rafting

Ocoee, TN, USA
About Cherokee Rafting
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.

Always a great trip with CR. Kyle was our guide a couple years back and enjoyed seeing him again on this trip as well. Knowledgeable, safe and always courteous to the guests. Never a disappointing moment when rafting with CR.

We had a blast! Beginners welcome! We did the full river, including the Olympic course. Our guide, Cade, was fantastic and made sure we didn’t miss any opportunities to surf the rapids or other cool things.

Clearly something I can recommend. I went on the rafting trip as an extra fun activity during my extended stay in the area on business travel. I couldn't have chosen better for a memorable takeaway, better and more than I had anticipated. The area is just beautiful and the river
