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.

We had Aaron as a guide and he was great. Definitely knows what he's doing and also knows how to navigate the river to make the rapids more exciting. The Ocoee is a rad river and I'd love to come back and try the upper portion next time.

This was my first time ever whitewater rafting - but I will be back. The staff was very informative from beginning to end. Our guide Tucker was great! He made the experience what it was (also easy on the eyes 😉).

First time rafting and everyone here made the experience phenomenal! Jimmy Johnson was our guide and he was so knowledgeable, educating us not only on rafting but on the history throughout the ocoee! Book with this company!!! Every guide with us was an absolute blast and truly great at what they do!

Aaron was a great guide! He was really personable and also very knowledgeable about the river. Our time on the river was thrilling but I never feared for my life 😊. We had a blast and will definitely recommend Cherokee and Aaron!

We booked a full River trip at 10 pm the night before our float. There were five of us going and that included a 65 year old gentleman. The staff went above and beyond to find a guide for us and we will be forever grateful. We had the BEST guide, Jimmy Johnson. He was so knowledgeable and fun. We... More
