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.

My wife booked our trip for weekend getaway. We had a fantastic time . Our guide (Dominic) was full of historical information about the river and full of one liners which made the trip that much more amazing. Thank you for a wonderful time !

3rd trip out on the Ocoee. First full river trip. Brought friends and other half on this excursion. Crew is trained, focused and positive. This was my second with Cherokee. Everyone in my group was impressed and had a blast. Time well spent making memories.
