Return to the main Lower Klamath River Rafting trips Page
On a Lower Klamath River rafting 4 day trip, there are many sections of the Lower Klamath that can be combined or run contiguously. You can truly enjoy a mini-vacation in this scenic Northern California area with great Class 2-3 rapids, side hikes and river side camping.
The trip logistics will depend on ages of participants, Native Indian celebrations and other criteria. We will always include the best section of river from Ferry Point and the hike to Ukonom Falls for those who want to follow the creek to the waterfalls.
On a Lower Klamath River rafting 4 day trip, we will usually extend the 2 day rafting trip with several sections above Happy Camp from Seiad Valley (where the Pacific Crest Trail crosses the river) with rapids like Sluice Box, and some good Class 3 rapids with Lower & Upper Savage and Otters Playpen. This might involve a shuttle back upstream on the morning of day 3, with the advantage of ending the trip closer to Happy Camp for easier drive to I-5 at Yreka at the end of the trip.
For some groups it also possible that we can put-in upstream of Happy Camp at the beginning of the trip, and float from 38-50 miles contiguously down through Happy Camp as far as Persidio Bar. This makes it possible for scout groups to get their 50 mile badges, though rafting 50 miles in 4 days can be tough to do. Much depends on water flows and camping style. Be sure to call us to discuss this option.
We feel that 2 days is never enough, so we encourage you to take those extra days and enjoy the serenity of this great river and the scenic surrounds of the Klamath National Forest. Truly enjoy a real getaway with family and friends.
