This is a self-guided trip so the amount of time you spend on the water is up to you. It usually takes our rafters anywhere between 3-6 hours to complete our stretch of river.
A self-guided trip means that there IS NOT a guide in your raft. However, we do have staff stationed at all of the major rapids as well as a "sweep boat" behind you to ensure your safety.
The Upper Cache Creek that we run is rated Class III with some sections that are Class II. No experience is necessary to run this river and it is ideal for beginners. Please be aware that this is not an amusement park ride and that whitewater rafting does involve inherent risks.
We run three different types of top of the line rafts that can accommodate anywhere from 2-6 people.
Our fleet consists of:
What to bring for rafting:
What to bring for camping:
What to leave at home:
Yes, we have room to accommodate most sized RVs and camping trailers. Please call ahead to reserve your spot as capacity is limited.
While we do not recommend rafting if you cannot swim, some customers do make this choice. You will have a life jacket which will help provide flotation if you fall out of the boat. You should feel comfortable in and around water as the chance of you having an out-of-boat experience is very likely.
Yes, please give us a call at least 7 days in advance of your trip date and we will do our best to accommodate your dietary needs.
Only our 2-day rafting customers are allowed to camp at our campground per our county contract. You may book a 2-day trip and enjoy all the aspects of camping with us but choose not to raft the second day. You are not required to raft both days. There is also a public campground located 2 miles upstream from us; click here to visit their website.
Come and enjoy the best rafting adventure in Northern California!
