California rafting family on South Fork American River

West of the Rockies, The South Fork American River is the most popular white water rafting destination. In 2015, as part of water management throughout the state, the South Fork has guaranteed boating water flows every day of the week except Tuesdays and Wednesdays. We have excellent California rafting over the whole summer.

Raft how you want on the South Fork. Choose a half-day trip that is a perfect length for the family. Or go for a full-day trip, complete with lunch. There is plenty of white water excitement to be had on the Class III rapids - up to 17 miles of river! Whichever way you go, the river canyon is a beautiful getaway.

When you are done with your trip, make sure to look at your pictures! Local photo companies like Hot Shot Imaging in Lotus capture your fun on the river. Take a photo home to show everyone!

Eden Vale Inn is just minutes away from outstanding California rafting. Come back to Eden after your day of adventure to soak and relax. See our luxurious rooms. We are familiar with the many reputable rafting companies on the American River. Feel free to contact us to ask about rafting!
