The Water is Flowing - Your Adventure Awaits

Last Updated 7/20/2023


If 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, for you private boaters, the Coloma Shuttle is running for its 10th season. Leave the headaches behind and spend all your energy riding the river, not the roads!



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