Owner description: 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.
Useful Information: Activities for older children, Food available for purchase, Bathroom facilities

“Splash down!”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Great excitement. The south fork of the American is COLD, even for a devout swimmer took some gumption to paddle around. good safety talk and experienced guides.

“Adventure in your backyard”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

Rafting on the American River is major fun! Be sure to know how to swim and follow your guides instructions. The water is always cold...but in the middle of summer, it's welcomed.

“Great Family Adventure”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

the guide was entertaining and confidence inspiring. The river was just wild enough to make it exciting for me and my girlfriend. I remember it as one of the most fun days I have spent in a long time. I would go back in a minute
