American Whitewater’s amenities include an on-site campground complete with in-ground pools. Our site is a quick five minute walk from the James Marshall Gold Discovery Park, the historical site which was ground zero for California’s Gold Rush.

You’ll be able to get away from the routine with our overnight packages and fully immerse yourself in the natural surroundings.
