Get Back to Nature with a White Water Rafting and Camping Vacation


California Whitewater Rafting — RAFTING TRIPS ON THE AMERICAN RIVER — White water rafting on the American River is truly a nature-lover’s ideal vacation. Spending the day whooshing through white water and paddling down lazy stretches of river in between rapids, all while you watch the wildlife on the banks of the river. It is an adventure you won’t soon forget.

Build Your Confidence On The River

Even someone who hasn’t previously touched a raft would agree that after a multi-day rafting trip, you really start to feel like an expert on the river.  Learn how to handle the rapids, and then cement all your newly learned rafting skills the next day!  A multi day rafting trip will help calm any concerns or fears you have had on the river, as well as really let you find yourself and your skills on the rapids.

Sleep Under The Stars

Adventure Connection offers camping with some of the best campsites you have ever experienced.  Stay close to the river, and really appreciate how beautiful your surroundings are as you watch the sunset from the river.  You can’t get that feeling from a chain hotel!

Enjoy Our Deliciously Prepared Meals

People rave over the meals, appetizers, and breakfasts we offer, for good reason.  Just because you are camping, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a high quality and delicious meal!  Our Red Wine White Water rafting trip offers amazing meals, drinks, camping, and rafting all in one amazing trip!

Take Some Time To Truly Soak In The River

Sometimes a 1-day rafting trip just doesn’t quench your thirst for the river. With Adventure Connection’s multi-day river rafting trips, you don’t have to hurry off the rapids.  Enjoy downtime, at the campsite, lazy stretches floating the river, and of course, multiple days of exciting white water rapids.
