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.

The only Rafting Company we have ever used on the Ocoee! Blake and his awesome guides have provided us with great memorable experiences over the last 4 years! Recommend guides Alicia, Both Jordans, Mac, & Jake.

We've been loyal patrons of Cherokee Rafting for 3 years now and have always enjoyed the trip. This trip there were 5 of us with Tyler as our guide. The guides really know their stuff (we've seen the same ones each year), have fun, are adventurous, yet safe. The river was high and fast. Also nice is the showers. With all the traveling I do lately it was easy to bring my bath bag and get truly clean before heading into Chattanooga for dinner. Highly recommend!

We rafted the Ocoee River with Cherokee Rafting on Sunday July 21, and it was the greatest. My wife and I are a little older and asked for a seasoned guide. They gave us Jake and it was a blessing. The river was high and running fast, but Jake took us through safely and kept us informed as how we would attack each difficult phase of the Ocoee. The full day trip was a great choice for us including a lunch that was excellent. Cherokee Rafting made the trip painless for us and answered all questions. All the guides were concerned about our safety and any others on the river. We witnessed several rafts flipping and Cherokee guides would be sure everyone was back aboard safely before leaving the area. Thanks Jake for a GREAT RIDE and to Bud for getting us to the river and back safely.

We took a youth group of over 40 teens and chaperones down the Ocoee on 7/20. The group went last year with a different outfitter and didn't have such a good time. A few rafts flipped and the staff was very unprofessional, so there was a little uneasiness about the trip this year. The staff at Cherokee did everything in their power to make sure this trip was safe, fun, and a great time! They seem to be a small group that works like a very well oiled machine. Their guides knew the river like it was the back of their hand, and the 7 boats we had in our group had the time of their lives. I would most definatly recommend that you use Cherokee the next time you decide to spend a day on the Ocoee, their staff is truly second to none!
I was in a raft with LIttle Blake and he was probably the best guide I personally have ever had on the Ocoee and I've been quiet a few times. Be sure to ask for him on your next trip!
