White Water River Rafting Trips

Spend a day (or more) white water river rafting in California through Class III rapids on one of our 10 mile rafting adventure trips! Together, you will raft as a team, water fight, swim, and more in one of God’s beautiful river canyons. The South Fork of the American River has two sections (the Upper/Chili-Bar Run and the Lower/Gorge Run) perfect for one or two days of adventurous California rafting fun. If you want to keep it dry, don’t bring it on the river!

The Splash About

We have two class III rafting sections on the South Fork of the American River that you can enjoy with us. Each section includes about 4 hours of rafting time on the river during summer months. This gives us extra time during the day for spiritual devotionals, fun team building games, leadership training, or just hanging out. At Rock-N-Water Christian Camps, every day is intended to be a full day of opportunities for fun, personal growth, and group unity. Our staff are not just California river rafting professionals, they are also dedicated Christian youth workers committed to serving your youth with days customized just for you.

Our Christian guides are looking forward to helping you experience river rafting in a fun and uplifting setting. Join us on a whitewater rafting river today.

Details & Possible Upgrades for River Rafting in California

  • By default, each of the above multi-day rafting trips have you arrive around 7 PM the night before (eating dinner before you arrive), and leaving around 6 PM (eating dinner on the road) at the end of your last adventure. If you would like to do the same on a one day trip, it’s just an extra $20/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 $20/person.
  • There is an extra $20 per person fee for doing adventures on a Saturday or Sunday.  Why weekends cost more?
  • For Rafting during October through May there is an extra $10 per person fee in these months. What’s it cover?
  • T-shirts can be ordered for the whole group at $10/person.
  • 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."
