The Water is Flowing and Your Shuttle Awaits!

whitewater rafting on the South Fork of the American River in CaliforniaIf you are ready for some fun whitewater rafting or kayaking, come to Coloma. The South Fork American River has guaranteed flows most days out of the week, and the Middle and North Forks are great options too! We have many outfitters equipped to take you and your group on a rafting trip that is right for you, from gentle to wild. See our Whitewater Rafting Directory for a list of licensed and experienced whitewater outfitters.

This is also a great place to learn and build whitewater kayak skills, and you can choose from several kayak schools in the area.

Even better, the River Store Shuttle is running for its second season. Leave the headaches behind and spend all your energy riding the river, not the roads!

Enjoy lots of fun on the water at the American River Festival September 11-13. It’s a good time for kids and families as well as whitewater playboaters and slalom racing competitors. The weekend also offers great music, food, and a chance to check out all the latest gear. Come to Coloma-Lotus and enjoy!

p.s. Thanks to Hotshot Imaging for letting us use another of their great American River rafting photos!
