A great family whitewater rafting trip, perfect for first time rafters & a quick camping weekend get-away from the city!
This is the perfect afternoon run featuring Class 2-3+ rapids like Satan’s Cesspool, Hospital Bar and Recovery Room. We meet you at our South Fork American River Campground right off historic Highway 49 in Lotus, California.
There is a camp store on site in case you need any last minute items. We will launch from our campsite, and will collect your keys prior to getting on the river. Personal gear can be left in your vehicles.
We will practice a few paddling skills before tackling our first rapid right at camp, a fun Class 2 called Current Divider. There are several Class 2-2+ rapids to follow before we enter the Gorge. The river will narrow and we will travel a bit faster as we paddle thru the Class 3 white water.
At the end of the day, we end up in Folsom Lake where our shuttle awaits. We will bring you back to camp after a fun filled afternoon.
