Coloma California River Running Guide

Weather for Coloma California Forecast

The Coloma Valley lies in California's Sierra foothills, in the fabled Gold Country. Through its center flows the South Fork of the American River, made famous in 1848 when gold was discovered in its stream bed. When news of the discovery reached San Francisco, it triggered the 1849 California Gold Rush, dramatically changing the history of our nation.

Today this river is also known throughout California for its inviting and exciting whitewater rapids. Enjoy good clean fun only an hour from Sacramento or 2-3 hours from the Bay Area.

Along the riverbank lie the beautiful rural communities of Coloma and Lotus. 
Outdoor recreation is a way of life in the Coloma-Lotus area. Many of the residents were first visitors who enjoyed the whitewater paddling, hiking and fishing. They liked what they found, fell in love with the area, and are now happy to call the Coloma Valley home.
