River Rafting the American River

Monday, July 15, 2013

Summertime in Placerville means plenty of hot, sunny days, excellent hiking, and, above all, some of the best white water rafting in California. Although many California rivers are too dry for white water rafting during the hot summer months due to low water levels, the American river that runs through Placerville yields excellent rapid fun from April til September. There are various rafting trips to choose from, beginner to expert. Because of the wonderful summer weather here in Placerville (usually in the high 80s to 90s), white water rafting becomes a thrilling way to cool down. What’s more, you can see the American River from the Placerville grounds and the rafting launching points are nearby. Getting back to your cozy bed at Eden Vale Inn with your loved one is easy after an exhilarating ride down the American River. Raft rentals and tour guides are available in the area.
