Meeting Time and Place:

Our trip begins promptly at 10:00 a.m. at River’s Bend Resort. It is important that everyone arrive on time so as not to hold up the entire trip. Please check in with one of our friendly staff members when you arrive. They are happy to answer any of your last-minute questions. Note: Other rafting companies meet at River’s Bend, so make sure you check in with American River Recreation.

Trip Logistics:

After a short bus ride to our launching point, we begin with a safety talk and paddling instructions. Here, you meet your guides and receive your lifejackets and paddles. Once on the water, you have a few minutes to practice your paddling skills so that everyone feels comfortable before beginning the adventure. We serve a delicious deli-style lunch buffet at our campground about an hour after launching. Once you have eaten your fill, the rafting adventure continues, highlighted by spectacular scenery and some of the most exciting rapids—Satan’s Cesspool, Trauma Falls and Hospital Bar, to name a few. Our 14-mile-long journey ends at Folsom Lake, where we serve cold beverages and snacks. Relax and swap stories on the scenic bus ride back to your cars, where we arrive at approximately 5:00 p.m. (Please be aware that there are a variety of factors that can cause a trip to end earlier or later than planned. This should be taken into consideration when making your travel plans.)

We Supply:

Well trained guides, Coast Guard approved personal flotation devices, paddles, specialized professional whitewater rafts, shuttle service, lunch, beverages and snacks at the end of the trip.


All river trips involve some risk and we recognize that accidents or illnesses can occur. We assume no responsibility for injury, damage or loss of your personal property, or for time and expense incurred. All participants will be required to sign an Assumption of Risk/Liability Release form before the rafting trip begins. We require every minor participating in a trip without a legal guardian present to bring a form pre-signed by his or her legal guardian. We ask that each participant be both physically and mentally prepared for the rafting trip. Each participant must notify us prior to a trip of any medical conditions, i.e., lifethreatening allergic reactions and prescribed medications for severe physical conditions, etc. We reserve the right to turn away anyone we feel will jeopardize his or her own safety or the safety of other passengers and guides. The river is not a place for drugs or alcohol. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone under the influence of such substances that will hinder his or her performance and jeopardize personal safety or safety of others. There are no refunds for cancellations made for this reason.

Waterflow Notice:

Waterflows for the South Fork American River result from releases from hydroelectric facilities located upstream. Such water releases are not subject to the control of El Dorado County or commercial rafting companies operating under permits from the County of El Dorado.
