Tributary Whitewater has been offering overnight American River rafting and camping vacations for families, groups and singles since the 1980’s. Many of our multi-day trips feature wilderness style camping, which can be a bit overwhelming for some, our established American River Outpost in Lotus, California offers lots of amenities as well as Canvas Tent rentals to cater to lots of camping options! The glamping tents can be added to these overnight rafting & camping trip packages, where the camping is at our Lotus campground both nights.
