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.

This was our second trip down the Ocoee with Cherokee Rafting. The first time we did the Middle and the second time we did both the Upper and the Middle. Our experience could not have been better, from the moment we made our reservations until we returned after rafting down the river! Everyone is so friendly and professional. Clean restrooms... More

Our guide Lance was so much fun and gave us a great ride down the Middle Ocoee. He was hilarious, supportive, fun, and safe all at the same time. It was one of the most fun things we did during our trip to Chattanooga!

If you are anywhere near the area, this is definitely a must! I have rafted a few times and this was definitely the most fun I've ever had! Cherokee Rafting is laid back, but very professional at the same time. The staff goes out of their way to be friendly and fun. The water and scenery on the trip is... More

My 17 year old daughter studied hard in school this year. All she said was "mom, I want to be adventurous this summer". So, for her 17th birthday we took her on her first rafting trip. She watched out the bus window as we drove along the river for miles just watching the river. The unknown, the curiosity, the uncertainty... More

Spent a great Monday afternoon with the guys at Cherokee Rafting - not a bit crowded. Caleb was our guide for the afternoon and did a great job. We've rafted the Okoee several times and this was the best rafting company we've been with - would highly recommend this group to anyone. We look forward to trying the all-day raft... More

My husband and I had a great time and are ready to try the upper part of the river next time! Would go early morning because it wasn't as busy and it was as hot as in the middle of the day.
