Overview

The beautiful American River is the site of California's 1849 Gold rush and now is the most popular whitewater rafting river in the Western US... let us show you why! One of the few rivers in California to have adequate water flows year round for rafting, The South Fork of the American River is a wonderfully fun guided rafting adventure for first timers, families and groups. The class 3 rapids are perfect for all types of participants, lots of action but not too intense for novices. Half, one and two day trips are available.

Good for day trippers, no need experience for rafting. There are areas in the river where it gets class 3 rapids but the crew is well experienced in handling and directing us to manage the raft. It was a whole day excursion we started at...More

Fabulous white water rafting down Southfork of American River. Our guide Wiggy was excellent and gave some historical facts about The Chile bar area in Placerville.

Such a great trip. We had a large group who stayed two nights and rafted all day Saturday. Guides were knowledgeable, hilarious, and encouraging. Facilities are great.

Hi, not sure about dog friendly. Call Beyond Limits Adventures and they can probably make a recommendation.
