Rafting the South Fork of the American River near Sacramento is the perfect weekend getaway or 2-day add-on to a family vacation in California. Steeped in Gold Rush history, the American River is lined with oak and pine forests which tumble through the Sierra Nevada foothills, creating rolling valleys and gorges which mirror the flows and rolling rapids of this classic California river. And the best part? You can find scenic wilderness, gold rush history and wonderful whitewater rafting on the American River just an hour away from Sacramento. Our South Fork American River Rafting 2-day trip in California is one of our guests` all time favorite whitewater rafting adventures and offers two fun-packed days of exciting whitewater combined with overnight riverside camping at OARS American River Outpost.
