Overview

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.

This company is a must if you’re planning to raft the Ocoee. Our guide Caleb was super fun and prioritized safety, but still let our boat try a few fun manœuvres once we got the hang of rafting. This was my first time rafting and...More

The whole crew was great. Accommodated our late arrival and our guide made the trip extremely fun. Recommend doing the whole river. We did the middle and it’s great but wished we have done it all.

This is the best rafting I have ever done. And I have been down multiple times. Amanda was our tour guide and she is the absolute best and you’ll have the best time if you’re in her raft!
