California Whitewater Rafting — RAFT THE SOUTH FORK OF THE AMERICAN RIVER — A river rafting trip through Adventure Connection is one of the best ways to have a heart pounding adventure practically in your own backyard. These trips begin about an hour from Sacramento, California, and let you go flying down the river through rapids rated Class III and higher. If you take a multi-day trip, you will get to experience camping out under the stars at night.
In fact, the camping itself is an adventure on your whitewater rafting trip. But don’t expect this to be a primitive campsite. You will have the chance to have hot showers when you get off the river, to warm up and relax. The campsite also has flush toilets, ping-pong tables, volleyball courts, and other activities, for your comfort and enjoyment.
Then you get to hang out with your new friends while your guides prepare a wonderful evening meal for you. Once you’re done with dinner, get ready for some fun with a slideshow of the boats negotiating the rapids. After that, your whitewater rafting guides will put together a roaring campfire where you and your companions can relax.
The time you spend at camp is almost as much fun as the time you spend out on the water. If you’ve never been river rafting before, try a two-day trip on the South Fork of the American River, and see how much fun you can have.
