Rush to California’s World Famous Whitewater Rafting Run

Beginner level only. South Fork is not offered in intermediate or advanced levels

In 1848, James Marshall discovered gold on the South Fork American River, making this river a popular recreational spot for families and experienced rafters, alike. Besides its history, the South Fork boasts natural beauty and exciting class III rapids.

From Chili Bar Reservoir to Folsom Lake, the South Fork American River flows 21 beautifully-unbridled miles of exciting whitewater rafting. Over 25 major river rapids cut through some of the most stunning and varied geology in the High Sierra, including such ominous-sounding rapids such as Meatgrinder, Troublemaker, Satan’s Cesspool, and Hospital Bar! Hold on tight, it’s going to be a wild ride!

Half-Day Trips start at $79!
