“Rafting the American River - Relief from the Summer Heat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

There were about 30 of us who went. One person was in charge to check out/rent the rafts. The check out was simple and painless.

We tied four rafts together as we conquered the American River. The water level was low and rapids was like level 1 only :(

But whether you joined us or not, do not go to the river unless you were armed with water guns or covered with rain gear. Our group was like an army ready for mortal combat shooting the shooter with double bazookas, cameras and jello shots. One group of rafters (two rafts) dared us and started shooting at us. They were outnumbered as we all "ambushed" them with our water guns.

To make things clear, River Rat was the place we rented the rafts but the fun continued on while we were rafting. The service they provided us was great as we surrendered the rafts in the end (at the destination point) and we boarded on the bus provided by River Rat to be taken back to our cars.

Overall, was a great experience.
