South Fork American River Rafting, Class II-III

About the Trip

The South Fork of the American River is one of the best whitewater rafting rivers in California. It combines all the things that make a rafting adventure unforgettable. Plenty of thrilling rapids, wildlife, and a wonderfully clear river flows through a beautiful canyon. The river, made famous by the historically important discovery of gold in 1848 at Sutter’s Mill, provides fun, yet safe whitewater trips for hundreds of folks each year, offering challenges for the experienced rafter without being too difficult for the first timer. Regardless of their experience level, those who run this river will long remember the famous rapids which bear such names as “Meat Grinder”, “Trouble Maker”, “Satan’s Cesspool” and “Hospital Bar”
