Where to go Whitewater Rafting

  • Truckee River
    If you’re looking for rafting in North Lake Tahoe, this is your river. The Truckee River boasts many class 2 and 3 rapids, as well some in the 3 range. Most trips take about half a day. This is a great one for families to experience together.
  • American River
    The American River provides challenges to suit all ages and ability levels. Families and beginners head to the South Fork for mellow half or full day trips. Those looking for a bit more adventure can tackle the Middle Fork home to the infamous “rock chute”, while experienced rafters looking for a real challenge can attempt the river’s North Fork. Depending on your trip, you can expect to drive approximately 1 – 2 hours to reach your put-in.
  • East Fork of the Carson River
    Located approximately an hour from South Lake, the East Fork of the Carson River treats rafters to moderate class 3 rapids. Depending on your outfitter, trips can take anywhere from a half day to two days. This river is another great options for families to experience together.
