The Deal

  • $139 for a full-day, 18-mile Middle Fork wilderness rafting trip with gourmet lunch for one adult, valid Monday–Friday ($239 value)

This 18-mile, pristine wilderness river trip is one of California’s most popular class 4 rivers. A step up from its little sister, the South Fork, it is perfect for rafters who have completed the South Fork and are looking for the next step or beginners who are looking for a little more of a thrill. This section of river takes you into the Gold country’s vast wilderness with plenty of Gold-Rush history and wildlife. Even out in the wild, rafters will be provided with a Gourmet Deli lunch for sustenance throughout the trip. With spectacular pool drop rapids like “Tunnel Chute”, “Kanaka Falls”, and “Chunder Falls” this section of river is ideal for thrill seekers of all ages.

Action Whitewater Adventures

To Action Whitewater Adventures' guides, setting is everything. During their full-day excursions, guides and groups mounted in rafts battle Class III and IV rapids just to make their way to a gourmet deli lunch set against the backdrop of the lush Lotus River Valley. Of course, they might argue the fun part is getting there.

They lead excursions down both the South and Middle Forks of the American River, some of the most popular rafting waters in the nation. On the South Fork, they conduct the "Chili Bar" run, a trip that covers up to 21 miles favored for its rough-and-tumble class III rapids and stellar countryside. The Middle Fork provides even rougher-and-tumbler Class IV rapids, the 18-mile journey punctuated by clear-flowing stretches populated by trout and adorable baby Poseidons.

We have gone twice now; this last time we took some friends, and they can't wait to go back again! The guides are hilarious, fun, and they know what they are doing. The scenery is spectacular! A fun chill hot dog and burger fest afterward...staying at camp lotus is the icing on the cake!
