Pricing & Discounts on the Stanislaus River

2018 Pricing

The price listed is the price you pay for rafting. Pricing for all of our trips includes: paddles, life jackets, photos (weather permitting), dry boxes for your belongings, boats, and shuttle service. Our goal is to make things as easy as possible for you so that you can focus on enjoying your day in the sun!

Do note that the Army Corps of Engineers (the regulatory agency that runs the parks) is  charging a day use fee of $5 per vehicle that parks in any of the lots at Knights Ferry or Orange Blossom Park.

Note about Heavily Booked Dates

Prices on heavily-booked dates tend to cost more, so if you have a big group with flexibility on the date you book, we recommend rafting in early June or after the first week in September to get the biggest savings! Also do know that on peak days we have our Orange Blossom to Oakdale trip, which is a more relaxing, less crowded, and more affordable section of the river.


10 or More

If you have a group of 10 or more, give us a call or submit a request and we can work out a group discount for you and your group (some Saturdays excluded)! We also do special pricing for youth and church groups, as well as non-profit organizations.

Group Payment Plans

We make group payments easy for you! You can set up reservations so that people can call in and pay their share, or you can share a unique link that we give you at the time of reservation, and your group can all pay online! Either way, group payments could not be easier!

Upcoming Specials

2018 Rafting Season

In the 2018 rafting season we are going to offer discounted rates to groups of 35 or more who go with us on our Bus and Raft trips. Bus and Raft trips involve us coming to a location of your choosing, picking up your group, taking you to the river, and then taking you home at the end of the day. And with prices starting at only $40 per person (depending on date and location) for both rafting and transit, you can't find a better deal around! Our ongoing partnership with Delta Charter Bus has enabled us to offer discounted rates on bus and raft trips all over Northern CA. So take advantage of the low prices, and don't worry about driving!
