River Management


South Fork American River Rafting Outfitters


P5211063.JPG



The South Fork of the American River is very popular because the rapids are relatively gentle, and the countryside is rich in history. Almost daily flows are provided from hydroelectric facilities upstream to create quality whitewater throughout the year.


If you are not an experienced rafter, we suggest scheduling your trip with one of the permitted companies who operate on the river. All outfitters have met strict standards for safety and quality of service.
