Overview
More
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.

Cherokee Rafting is by far the best white water rafting experience we have ever had. Rafting on the Ocoee has turned into a family tradition, which began back in 2006. 12 years later, we still choose Cherokee every summer for our annual rafting trip and...More
