The Middle Fork American River Will have water in 2015. starting on memorial day there will be water on weekends and select mid week days. Stay tuned for updated availability.

The Middle Fork starts with a bang! Within minutes of jumping in the boat, you encounter several Class III rapids, preparing you for Tunnel Chute, the first Class IV rapid. Your day continues with several Class IV rapids as we raft deep into the wilderness. The middle section of this whitewater rafting trip mellows out and allows for swimming and relaxing before dropping into a second set of Class IV rapids to the end of the river. This is a very popular but long day trip or a more leisurely two-day whitewater wilderness camping trip.
