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.

Did the Upper and Middle. Big John was an awesome guide. Lunch was all you wanted of large boiled shrimp and cold cuts to make a sandwich. Was very good. Will be going back with Cherokee Rafting

We did the fill river rafting that included lunch and had a blast. Would definitely recommend the full day day trip over a half day. Alycia was our guide and she was amazing- will definitely be requesting to be with her when we come back.
