Rafting down this Class 3 river is filled with adventure and thrills.

The water is warm and the rapids are always fantastic. Cache Creek offers the only self-guided white water in the state. At Cache Canyon, you can stop and picnic or swim or sunbathe whenever and wherever you want.

FIRST-TIME RAFTER IRENE SAID:
"It was an overnight trip and in the evening we camped out and were served margaritas and wine... Then came the evening under the stars... There was a huge campfire and I layed back on a log and watched shooting stars. There were SO MANY STARS in the sky! I could not believe it! On our way home we stopped off at the Jelly Belly outlet and I bought cappucino and caramel corn flavored jelly beans... What more is there in life! I had a great time. It is something that everyone should try... at least once in life! "

This trip offers one night of camping. You can bring a tent, trailer or motor-home. You will have access to your vehicles all weekend.

Don't forget ice cream money and water guns!
***************************************
WATER GUN INFO:
The best type for the trip would be a "Stream Machine". Most "Super Soaker" water guns just don't have the capacity, nor do they have the ease of refilling and the "drench power" like that of the Stream Machine. Try REI or Toys R Us stores. (www.rei.com). If you want to buy it on line try typing "stream machine water gun" into www.google.com search engine.

    The river offers class 2 and 3 rapids with a perfect balance of calm waters and majestic scenery suitable for most experience levels.

    Whether you’re a first time rafter or an experienced whitewater enthusiast, Cache Canyon River Trips has it all!

    Woot! I'm stoked to have found this group of white-water enthusiasts! Can't wait to bomb down the rapids and meet new people :) Btw, I'm interested in class 5 rapids if anyone has a good lead on that.

    May 15, 2013

    • Julia M.

      I'm looking into class 5 rafting.

      May 15, 2013

    • Christina

    Hi there! What is the cost if we don't plan on carpooling (I'd prob drive myself and a friend from Berkeley.)

    May 18, 2013

    • Julia M.

      $60 is the cost for one day trip. We didn't charge for carpool.

      May 21, 2013

  • Christina

    Hi Julia, hope you are doing well! Does the price of 100/person cover the wine tasting as well?

    April 12, 2013

    • Thomas Dwyer I.

      There is only one winery anywhere near this place: Capay Valley Vineyards, just north of the casino.

      http://www.capayvalle...­

      Our group has been there many times and has never been charged a tasting fee (possibly because there has always been someone in the group who purchases wine from them).

      April 12, 2013

    • Julia M.

      I will buy wine from them, so that will cover the wine tasting fee for the group.
