The South Fork American River Lotus Run is a rafting trip suitable for younger kids, older seniors and timid rafters. Its an easy guided river trip which contains mild Class 1 & 2 rapids.

We meet at 10:30am in the parking lot for a short shuttle to the put in where pre-trip instruction is given. PFD’s and helmets are fitted, and paddles given out before launching. The group enjoys an easy 4 mile float with fun rapids including ‘Barking Dog’ before we arrive back to our camp.

Make a day of it – Plan a visit to the Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park just 2 miles away from our camp or take some easy local hikes.

Make it a camping & rafting vacation! Add camping at our private riverside campground with canvas tents and group event areas.

The South Fork American River Lotus Run has limited availability, especially on weekends and during peak holidays.
