For Ages 7+

Our South Fork American River Class 3 rafting trips are prefect for kids ages 7+. Swimming skills are not required on these rafting trips.

We offer 2 overnight packages on the South Fork American. There is a wilderness style trip where we camp on the river (primitive style) on night #2. Our regular South Fork trip includes 2 nights camping at our established camp with showers and flushing toilets. 

Bring your own camping gear or rent a Canvas Tent from us. If you are booking our Wilderness trip, this upgrade is only available on the first night of camping, as night #2 is out on the river at a remote location.
