Only one mile away is the James Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park where gold was first discovered in California in 1848.
This historic park features a museum with an ongoing schedule of films and guided tours, miles of great hiking trails, acres of gold rush artifacts and a fully functioning duplicate of the original saw mill built by Marshall for John Sutter in addition to a fully functioning blacksmith shop and many other period enterprises.
" We were a group of 13 who went rafting on the American River (South Fork). It was the most entertaining and exciting vacation we all had in a while. The crew were very friendly and the best I liked about Whitewater Voyages is their free camping. Even though it's free, this is one of the best camp grounds I have visited. Lunch provided during Rafting trip was the best you could ask for. Overall, I would rate Whitewater Voyages as one the best rafting companies I have experienced in the last 10 years. If at all I ever get an opportunity to raft again, I will definitely use this company again. NO doubt about that. "
