    Who is Rock-N-Water?

    Rock-N-Water is a Christian Camp located an hour West of South Lake Tahoe in California. We have been leading church youth groups whitewater rafting since 1989. Our Christian staff are not only trained camp counselors, but also outdoor adventure guides. It’s our passion to not only get youth groups into God’s creation, but to also help them to experience the joy of God’s living word through those outdoor experiences. Every trip we lead includes time intentionally set aside for Biblical devotionals.

    Details & Possible Upgrades for Christian Family Vacations

    • If you would like to arrive the night before and have breakfast with us, you can add it onto your day trip for just an extra $27/person.
    • If you live more than 3 hours away, or you just want to finish your trip with even more awesomeness, we recommend you add dinner and another night of camping & campfire time to the end of your trip for just $35/person.
    • There is an extra $15 per person fee for doing adventures on a Saturday or Sunday.  Why weekends cost more?
    • If you are comparing our prices with generic rafting outfitters, please be aware that unlike prices listed for most of their south fork american river rafting trips, our prices already include all taxes and fees.

    Water Flow Statement from El Dorado County

    El Dorado County ask that all rafters on the South Fork of the American River be aware that "Water flows in the South Fork American River result from releases from facilities located upstream. Such water releases are not subject to the control of El Dorado county or commercial rafting companies operating under permits from El Dorado County."
