Summer Rafting Weekend on the American River

May 9, 2019 by Heather Howard

We’ve teamed up with the crew at Beyond Limits to bring you a summer rafting weekend that you won’t want to miss! The South Fork of the American River is the most popular rafting trip in California and your trip will start when you check in at the Beyond Limits camp store in Lotus, CA. Set up your camping spot and enjoy lunch by the river at noon. After your safety briefing and orientation, you’ll board the rafts and head downstream for an epic adventure. After a few miles and several mild rapids you’ll enter the outstanding lower gorge section, beginning with “Fowler’s Rock” rapid and numerous exciting Class III rapids. The biggest rapids “Satan’s Cesspool” and “Hospital Bar” will surely get your raft soaking wet! At take-out, enjoy a shuttle ride back to Lotus for a cold beverage—plus, check out the videos and photos of your excellent day on the river!

Included in this special package is dinner on Saturday evening, breakfast on Sunday morning and camping on Saturday night. Minimum age for rafting is 7 years old.
