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.

I went with a church group from Florida and my group had Coby as our guide. When I say it was the best, it really was! I've never gotten soaked in the previous times but Coby knew exactly how to get the "meat" of the...More

Tried whitewater rafting for the first time - definitely a fun experience. The main guide told jokes on the bus ride to the dropoff point, and he skillfully guided us through the rapids. Thanks, Jimmy!

Took the family for a whitewater rafting trip to end the summer with a bang. Cherokee Rafting and our guide, John, provided a safe and fun ride with plenty of adventure and no unintended dips in the water.

We had an excellent time and Alycia was the best guide ever! This was our first time whitewater rafting but definitely not our last. We will absolutely go with Cherokee again and we'll ask for Alycia.
