Visiting California anytime soon? Remember to indulge in ‘once in a lifetime’ exquisite experience of whitewater rafting on the American river. The river as it flows through El Dorado County offers an unforgettable experience to water lovers, from a 7 year old kid to a 75 year old adult.

The adrenaline pumping rapids and scenic floats give you the thrill that people associate with an adventure trip or vacation to El Dorado County. The South Fork American River, famous for the discovery of gold (gold was first discovered here in 1879), is California’s most famous whitewater river, attracting millions every year for the exciting prospect of river rafting in California. Here at the very river, James Marshall first discovered Gold.

What’s great for traveling families is the availability of multiple outfitters to choose from. You and your family/friends can plan in advance and book from a suitable outfitter in order to tailor your trip to fit your groups's needs. Whether you’re looking to get out on the water with friends for a partial day’s ride, or have organized a trip for your co-workers, recreational group, or church, there is something for people of every age, made easy by the professionals who know how to do it right.

Witness gorgeous, thrilling rapids in one of the most exciting, adventurous and rollicking rides with the starting of the South Fork of the American River (the upper section). With a class-III adventure rating, the whole exercise is fully appreciated by rafters of any age or skill level. You will encounter river rapids such as Meat-Grinder, Racehorse Bend, Triple Threat, and the most infamous Troublemaker. The excitement meter stays on high as you continue downriver to the Gorge. The river canyon narrows, producing more class III rapids consisting of Fowler’s Rock, Satan’s Cesspool, Haystack Canyon, Bouncing Rock and Hospital Bar Rapids. The journey then finally comes to an end, at the still waters of Folsom lake.

A trip to El Dorado County for whitewater rafting combines the river’s natural beauty, rich historical background, and exciting rapids in one great whitewater vacation experience. The experience is guaranteed to be exciting for everyone.
