Consistently the best of the best. The food, the camp, the river, and some of the best people you’ll ever run over rapids with and the best places to stop. Year after year... No one compares. Simply the very best. Love them so much!!

Two Day/Two Night - South Fork of the American River (Class 3) Rafting Vacation

Relax, unwind and unplug with River Runners' premier two day rafting adventure on the South Fork of the American River. Two days with River Runners includes camping at the lovely and green Camp Lotus - a private campground, five meals prepared with love and fresh ingredients, campfires, smores and so much more! Camping with River Runners is hassle free, just bring your sleeping pad and bag, we even set your tents up before you arrive.

This trip combines both of the beautiful Chili Bar and Gorge sections of river to give you a complete, memorable and inspiring California rafting experience. 

We approach the camping experience in the same way we approach our river trips, with a dedication to personal service and a commitment to quality. River Runners offers hassle free camping in our dedicated campsite. Our campsite is lush, green and right next to the river with hot showers and flush toilets.  We have a lighted seating area where we serve your meals, access to power to charge your phones and a campfire with benches where we build you a fire in the evening. Our meals are prepared fresh and à la carte so you can make your plate the way you like it. Good food and real plates really make the camping experience feel very civilized.  Check out our menu.
