Whitewater Rafting on the American River  

The American Rivers are the jewel in the crown of Northern California. Only a two hour drive from San Francisco and six hours from Los Angeles, the  South Fork American Rivers give you a break from the heat and bustle of the city without having to stray too far from home. 

Just 20 minutes off of Highway 50, Camp Lotus is a green oasis by the river. When you arrive at River Runners you are coming to your home away from home on the American River. 

At River Runners the American River experience isn't just about rafting. We like to introduce to what it's like to live by the American River.  Our camp is right on the banks of the American River and you get to stay right there and wake up to the sound of birds chirping and the river flowing by. 

When we take you whitewater rafting on the South Fork of the American River, it is an especially unique experience. Our guides can't wait to introduce you to the magic of the river. Facilitate swimming and playing, picking berries and of  course rafting down the exciting rapids on the South Fork of the American River.
