From short and sweet half-day trips to two-day getaways, the American River offers a trip that’s perfect for everyone. So grab your crew and #LetsGoRafting! OARS was amongst the first outfitters to offer American River rafting trips, and more than 50 years later, we’re still at it from our riverside Outpost less than an hour from Sacramento in Lotus, CA. Today, the American River is considered the epicenter of California whitewater rafting, with abundant opportunities for first-timers and experienced paddlers alike. OARS also offers trips on the Stanislaus River and the Merced and Tuolumne Rivers near Yosemite. Looking for a place to stay while rafting on the American River?
