You'll pitch your tent in Lotus, California, at the Mariah Wilderness Expeditions property, where riverfront scenery is enough to make your whole trip feel worth it—and that's before you get to the fun pastimes like volleyball, ping-pong, and horseshoes. Ensuring your stay is as comfortable as it is picturesque are homey amenities like the Coffee Corner for your morning java and the Wine & Beverage Garden for a post-winery sip.
Your adventure will begin with a one-day chauffeured tour of three to five El Dorado County wineries, where you'll munch on snacks and enjoy an included lunch as you sample exquisite vino. Back at camp, you'll enjoy hors d'oeuvres and a crisp glass of wine before digging into a finger-licking barbecue dinner. Be sure to get a good night's sleep, because you have an exhilarating day of rafting ahead of you the next morning. You'll paddle a 10-mile route over either the Chili Bar or Gorge rapids, both located on the South Fork of the American River. You're in for a wild ride you won't soon forget.
Nestled in El Dorado County northeast of Sacramento, and a mere mile from Coloma, Lotus lies in a sweeping space that drew droves of miners during the gold rush of the mid-1800s. This haven for outdoor adventure acts as a gateway to the region's wineries, horseback riding trails, and of course, white-water rafting.
