Staff greet visitors at their River Center in Oakdale, where groups are then shuttled to the launch point at Orange Blossom Park on the Stanislaus River and equipped with tandem kayaks or rafts, life jackets, and paddles for a two- to three-hour float over Class I river. Trips are open to all paddlers ages 5 and older, provided they’re able to swim. An additional $2 fee is required per person for river use and park entry. Click to view available dates.
River Journey Adventures
For 30 years, the friendly and knowledgeable rafting staff of River Journey has outfitted visitors with the equipment and know-how to navigate the meandering waters of the picturesque Stanislaus River. Departing from Knights Ferry, self-guided groups in fitted lifejackets cruise the river in their inflated rafts or kayaks, paddling with provided paddles or hiring a flock of unemployed ducks to do the grunt work.
