About Cherokee Rafting
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 have used Cherokee Rafting for several years. They always provide an excellent experience. All the guides we have ridden with have been fun and well skilled. Cherokee also offers great prices.

They should have a schedule on their website as well as cost. It was reasonably priced-a little less than some of the other outfitters and we were very pleased with our experience. We did the full river.
