Dear Friends of MaLode,

What’s up for the 2022 rafting and camping season? Glad you asked!

I’m happy to say we are back and kicking off the 2022 season with gusto!  Our staff is fully vaccinated, boosted, periodically tested, and raring to get out there to show you some outdoor fun!

This season we are concentrating on our most popular whitewater trip, the Gorge. A beginner-friendly splash fest down classic Class II-III rapids, the Gorge trip meets conveniently at noon. We provide the guide, raft, gear and shuttle with a delicious lunch served in camp before we put on the river around 1 pm when the water arrives at our camp.

You may already know that MaLode has a truly exceptional campsite on the banks of the South Fork of the American River, with lots of room to hang out and relax. Whether you choose to bring your own dome tent, rent one from us, or opt for one of our more luxurious  canvas “glamping” platform cabin-tents, the cooling grass and burbling sound of the river will sooth and comfort your city tortured soul!

Bottom line, come join us on the river and remember that Mother Lode has the reputation for not only being the safest company on the river – it is also the most fun!

See you on the river,
Scott Underwood
