  • This 11-mile rafting experience is exciting and lots of fun, with many memorable rapids! 

    The South Fork American River rafting trip is the best rafting option for most participants as it includes a warm up on easier rapids. This trip has some of the best rapids on the river and is located between Hwy 49 bridge in Coloma and Folsom Lake. You will meet the group at the camp for a BBQ lunch where you'll be given pre-trip instructions. 

    You will get a few miles of warmup before you enter the steep granite canyon known as the ‘Gorge’ where the rapids occur more frequently. There are many Class 3 and 3+ rapids like Fowler’s Rock, Satan’s Cesspool, Bouncing Rock, and Hospital Bar. There will also be numerous milder and fun rapids along the way and safe places in parts for swimming. The rafting trip ends at Folsom Lake where you are served cold drinks and will get transported back to the meeting location by bus. 

    Escape the daily grind and spend the day on the river!
