Facebook How is the weather? What are the river flow conditions?




Since 1977, EarthTrek has catered to numerous rafters on the American River as well as hundreds of schoolchildren each year on our Gold Rush Living History programs. Our beautiful campground has been the site for weddings, music festivals, local benefit events, corporate events, and many other large group functions. The experience we have gained over the years is evident to everyone who participates in one of our raft trips or other group events. We would like to invite you to visit our site and see for yourself why we think our facility and services would be perfect for your next company or team building outing.



Ample space for games and activities, as well as ping pong, cornhole, slackline, foosball, badminton and other lawn games. We also have a small inflatable water slide and access to jumper rooms for the kids. If desired, we can also offer a large rock climbing wall at an extra charge. Fishing is also available along our shoreline (bring your own tackle and fishing license).

 Enjoy our all-you-can-eat buffet lunch!


When is the best time?
Weather conditions are normally ideal from March through November. Summer weekends tend to be the busiest times when rafters are enjoying the American River, especially Saturdays in July and August.

If you wish to combine rafting with your event, we suggest weekends from April thru June, Sundays in July and August, and weekends in September and October. Midweek dates are always better when the river is not as busy and we offer reduced rates.

Minimum and maximum group size requirements: We require a minimum of 30 paid participants to schedule an event. Our facility can comfortably accommodate up to 250 participants.

Reservation Information: To reserve a date we require a $500 deposit with balance due no later than 7 days prior to your picnic.

Cancellation Policy: Your deposit is refundable, less a $100 cancellation charge up to 30 days prior to your event. Within 30 days your deposit is non-refundable. Within 7 days of your event, there is no refund except for rain conditions (see below).


Whitewater Rafting
For the adventure seekers in your group we offer an optional morning adventure down the exciting Upper Chili Bar section of the South Fork American River. Rafters who sign up for this optional activity need to arrive at our camp (picnic location) at 8:30 AM. We will shuttle by bus up to Chili Bar to begin the 8 mile journey downstream to our camp. The rafting trip will conclude at about 12:30 PM, just in time for the start of the picnic. 


Consider these optional ideas that we can arrange at our camp that will make your company picnic an event that will be talked about for years to come.
