Lots of fun. Great activity to do with teenagers. Water is cold, but Sac is hot, so it all works out. 3-4 hours is just right. Make sure you have a water canon with you or just buy one at the shop.

Being an avid outdoor recreation enthusiast, I have admired this business since moving to the Sacramento area in 1987. They make it easy to get on the river and to have a fun carefree day of leisure. Their rental fees and policies are reasonable, and they provide a shuttle back to the start for a few bucks. Also, it is a much easier and preferable launch from their side of the river. Enjoy! You'll be back for more.

A lazy float on the American River thru the beautiful and unspoiled American River Parkway is simply the best! American River Raft Rentals make it easy and afordable to do.

A few things to mention first of all parking lot very small get here early. We came about an hour before they open and had to park in the dirt field. Next you must carry your raft and your ice chest down to the river with whoever is in your party. For me this was difficult because my two granddaughters ( very young and no help ) and daughter and a large ice chest we had to take many rest. And the last thing I found out is you must pay $5 per person to take the bus back to your car its not included in the price of the raft. So after those three things we had a great time expect to get wet. It took us about 3 hours with a couple small stops on the way.. well worth it much longer than the Truckee river raft run. Bring food .. bring drinks.. lots of sunscreen..

Don't need anything more than sunscreen, a hat, a swimsuit, water, and a some snacks. Don't bother bringing a towel--you'll dry off and most likely anything not in a water-proof bag or container will get wet (that is if people go in and out of the water).
