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 the best! Gaby Did an awesome job guiding and teaching our teens how to raft. Power house was our favorite.

Did the half-day trip down the middle section of the Ocoee with my family (kids were 14 and 17 but had not previously been rafting). The river trip itself was awesome; beautiful scenery and rapid enough to be exciting though not completely terrifying. Our guide...More
