Rafting in Placerville, CA

The South Fork of the American River is California's most populare whitewater river. Whether you book a trip from Chili Bar or the Gorge Run, you will have a great day rafting with one of the outfitters in El Dorado County. Offering rapids from Class I-III, the river is a great run for all ages!
The South Fork takes you on a memorable journey thru our gold rush history, passing old mines, and current dredges. For more information visit the El Dorado County website about rafting the American River.
Many outfitters work with the Albert Shafsky House bed and breakfast to offer discounts for our bed and breakfast guests when they stay with us in Placerville, just minutes from the American River.
Rita and I have been many times on both parts of the South Fork and have had a great time each time. The trip is always different, even on the same route because the flow is never the same. For photos of one of our trips check here. Yes, that is Rita and I in the front of the boat. And of course that is me, goofing off for the camera. I was just glad I managed to stay in the boat for the photo!!!
Even innkeepers need to get away for a day now and then and what better way than to raft the South Fork of the American River! In fact that is one of the secrets of having a bed and breakfast, get out once in a while and just enjoy the area you are in. The bed and breakfast has managed to still be in Placerville every time we have left it for an hour (or 6) to raft :)
