On all EarthTrek Expeditions trips all of your gear will remain at our South Fork Camp so you do not have any restrictions on what you can bring. The following list is suggested items. We do not suggest that you bring valuables but if you must we do offer a safe to lock your items during the day or you can lock them in your car and leave your keys in our safe. On the river most people prefer to wear a swimsuit or shorts, tennis shoes without socks and a T-shirt (a T-shirt is good to keep the sun off but a wet cotton T-shirt may give you a chill). You will get wet so dress accordingly.

While on the river

  • PROPER FOOT WEAR that protects your feet. Tennis shoes or wet suit booties are best Teva™ style sandals that securely strap on your feet are OK but they do not give you the best foot protection. Flip-flops or bare feet are NOT allowed on the river.
  • CAP or VISOR with chin strap.
  • SUNGLASSES with secure headstrap such as Croakies™.
  • CHANGE OF CLOTHES for your drive home. Also bring a plastic trash bag for wet shoes and clothes.

If cool or inclement weather is a possibility, we recommend the following items

Items for Camping Overnight
NOTE: Camping is not included on one day trips but you have the option to add camping to your trip for $10 per person per night.


Dear EarthTrek Staff,

Just a note to say we had a wondeful experience on our whitewater rafting adventure with you on the South Fork American River. We had never been before and it was great! The entire staff was so accommodating, pleasant and reassuring. Everyone was as helpful as possible. We'll definitely come back and recommend EarthTrek to anyone who wants to have a great trip. We can't thank you enough.

Art & Nancy C.
