The Cheoah is known as one of the most difficult, technical rivers to paddling in the Southeast. It has gained popularity in the whitewater paddling community due to its continuos gradient and quick-succession rapids.

NOC does not currently offer commercial whitewater rafting trips on the Cheoah River. NOC Paddlesports provides select opportunities to paddle this river.
