CHILI BAR RAFTING TRIP - The finest rafting adventure in California!

$69 per person weekdays* and $80 per person weekends*! 

The Chili Bar section of the South Fork American River is an excellent rafting run with many exciting class 3 rapids... a great choice for both beginner and experienced rafters. This 8 mile guided trip features wonderfully fun whitewater rapids. Its course will take you through beautiful Sierra foothill scenery, crystal clear pools and the small gold mining town of Coloma, CA. This is where James Marshall first discovered gold at Sutter's Mill in 1848 and started the California Gold Rush! The excitement comes to a head towards the end of our Chili Bar run with a popular rapid known as "Troublemaker" where you can pose for the videographers!

At the end of your trip, a chili BBQ lunch will be served at the gorgeous River Park Resort in Lotus, CA. Enjoy a cold beverage and view your exciting Go Pro videos at our River Store. At 1:30 PM, you will board the shuttle bus for a short ride back to your car.

“Fantastic facility and guides”

We had a group of 13 people rafting and camping and Beyond Limits was so accommodating. Most of the people had been rafting before but a few people hadn't and were a bit nervous. Each guide was great at making the trip as mellow or 'adventurous' to fit the different groups in the rafts. Everyone had a great time and people that had been rafting before with other outfitters said this one was the most fun. It was great to see both Scott and Chris, who had guided us previously a couple years ago.
What set the trip apart was the campground and services available. There are flush toilets and hot showers available. The tent site was right by the river on a flat grassy area with swimming and some fishing available. Most impressively the dinner and hot breakfast were delicious. The staff literally work all day and most of the night to prep, guide, cook and clean. It took a lot of the hassle away that usually comes with organizing a group trip.
