Please note, EarthTrek is not a public campground. Our cabin tents and river tents are only available to our whitewater rafting guests or guests attending a private event. 

Welcome to EarthTrek Expeditions on the American River in Coloma, California. The discovery of gold here in 1848 spurred the California Gold Rush and fortune seekers from all over the world came in hopes of striking it rich. People still travel far and wide to this historical location for the wealth of fun and adventure; whitewater rafting on the American River. EarthTrek has been offering superb California rafting adventures since 1977, so we know how to do it right!

I want to personally invite you on a whitewater rafting trip with EarthTrek Expeditions. When I started EarthTrek in 1977 my goal was to provide the highest quality adventures possible. I took my first rafting trip nearly 50 years ago when I ran an outdoor adventure recreation club for employees at a well known theme park in Orange County. After numerous trips down the canyon rivers of Arizona, Utah and Colorado, I gained valuable knowledge how to operate a quality river trip. I learned that top-notch raft equipment, great food and experienced fun-loving guides are all the ingredients to a memorable rafting trip but I felt that wasn't enough. 'Roughing it' while camping is great fun but I wanted to offer a higher level of camping comfort for our guests. After 45 years of evolving, our privately owned campground on the South Fork American is a one-of-a-kind facility. With our cabin, deluxe cabin tents and unique river front tents on decks at the rivers edge we provide you a level of river camping comfort (some call it GLAMPING) that cannot be found anywhere else on the American River or perhaps in all of the West. I hope you will come visit us and experience a rafting trip with EarthTrek Expeditions. I am confident it will be an experience you will always treasure.
