Cherokee Rafting was one of the first companies to begin rafting the Ocoee...

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.

Had a great time on my first white water rafting trip! I was nervous but our guide was great! It was exciting but I felt safe, and our adult children loved it also. I recommend Cherokee and the guide, Ryan.

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
