The Middle Fork American River (Tunnel Run) is an 18-Mile, Class III-IV section of river. Rich in gold rush nostalgia, and blessed with breathtaking beauty, the Middle Fork American River is located in the heart of the Tahoe National Forest, it winds its way through a deep and remote canyon with its emerald green water. Alternately, wild and serene, the Middle Fork offers a combination of thrills, excitement and quiet wilderness. The Middle Fork American River can be experienced in 2 different ways:
The most common and popular way of running this section is by rafting all 18-Miles in a day. This thrill ride is a full day of exciting rapids, mixed with a tranquil mid section and an exciting finale. The Middle Fork American River has maybe the most unique and exhilarating rapid in the world The Tunnel Chute this Class IV rapid is cutting edge in commercial rafting and such a privilege to be able to experience, it leaves you satisfied with a sense of accomplishment, and with an adrenaline rush like no other.
The other option is to take on the river in a 2-day wilderness camping experience, breaking the river in half allows one to soak in the true beauty of this super remote and vast wilderness river. We also bring along a full kitchen where we serve you 4 meals. That night the guides cook you an amazing tri-tip dinner, with BBQ chicken, garlic bread, corn on the cob, and a lush salad all while you relax literally in the middle of nowhere. Washing this amazing dinner down with a cold beer or a glass of red wine tops it all off. In the morning the guides prepare a bacon and egg breakfast to get you ready for your second day, we also run an extra 7 miles of wilderness river making this the ultimate 2-Day camping trip.
