The Destination
Just off the South Fork of the American River in Coloma, the aptly named Mother Lode River Center sits in the heart of adventure in California Gold Country. Set between Lake Tahoe and Sacramento, this experienced guide service has been leading trips for more than 40 years, recording upward of two million river miles and nearly 300,000 satisfied guests among its accomplishments. But there's more to Mother Lode than white-water rafting. Add in a high-ropes course—which includes a climbing wall, among other adrenaline-filled activities—and you've got high adventure both on and off the river. Join them on an excursion that combines Class III rapids, high-ropes action, delicious food, and campsite accommodations for three fun-filled days you won't soon forget.

The Itinerary
Day 1:
Upon your 12:30 p.m. arrival at the River Center, you'll be greeted by the guide staff and given an extensive white-water safety talk. After meeting the rest of your adventure group, you'll be outfitted with rafting gear and equipment before hitting the ten-and-a-half-mile Gorge section of the South Fork of the American River, which ends in Folsom Lake. There, shuttles will pick you up, greeting you with a cold beverage and a ride back to the River Center. While you enjoy a hot shower in the solar-powered restrooms, your guides will begin preparing your delicious dinner, which is served outdoors under the stars. The rest of the night is yours to relax in a cozy canvas cabin tent, dome tent, or eco house.

Day 2:
Wake up early in the morning to the smell of fresh coffee wafting through the camp. After a hearty breakfast, you'll be prepped and given another safety talk for the Challenge Ropes Course activity. With guides at all four of the high-ropes-course elements, you'll be able to rotate through each element at your own leisure for three hours. High elements include the Climbing Wall, Catwalk, Leap of Faith, and Pipe Dream. You will depart after the ropes course activity around noon. Settle in for dinner and an evening around the campfire—you can use your s'mores kit to make some tasty treats under the stars.

Day 3:
Clean up your campsite and eat breakfast before departing for home.

The Digs
Mother Lode's 19-acre plot of land just off the river plays host to a variety of accommodations. You'll be in a canvas cabin tent for two or four people, and you'll enjoy the added comfort of a cot—though you should still bring your own sleeping bag. Other site amenities include hot showers, flushable toilets, a half-mile of riverfront access, a volleyball court, and a horseshoes area.
