Turtle River Rafting Company has been guiding whitewater rafting trips in Northern California since 1976.

A river journey is a unique opportunity to travel and experience a world that is not accessible in any other way.

Turtle River rafting trips are about moving out of ordinary mind – taking a real vacation.

Our home is in Mount Shasta. The rivers running through the mountains of northern California offer some of the best whitewater rafting in the western United States. This rugged, mountainous country is also treasured for its solitude, exceptional wildlife, and fabulous scenery.

We invite you to travel with us on a rafting adventure and share our love of whitewater, wilderness, and friendship.

Middle Klamath River

Located in the Klamath River valley just north of Mount Shasta, the Middle Klamath is an ideal river trip for first-timers, families with children as young as four, or river veterans looking for solitude and relaxation. In addition to the many Class 2 rapids, you’ll be exploring side creeks, swimming . . . or floating . . . in the warm water, and discovering deer and turtles along the riverbank.

On overnight trips we will be staying at Tree of Heaven Campground. Shaded by trees planted in the gold mining days, the campground is a Forest Service facility located right on the river — the perfect place to relax, swim, or hike after a day of rafting.

Lower Klamath River

Beginning near the historic mining town of Happy Camp, the Lower Klamath is our most popular rafting trip. With its combination of whitewater, wildlife, and fabulous mountain scenery, the Klamath River is a perfect summer vacation.

On overnight trips we add an extra raft to carry our food and equipment. Each evening you’ll camp on a large, secluded beach. We’ll prepare a delicious meal, tell stories by the campfire, and settle in for a night under the stars. A highlight of each trip is a visit to Ukonom Falls.

For those on a shorter schedule, we have 1-day trips available. Whether for one day or five, you’ll want to return year after year to play in the warm waters, soak up the summer sun, and enjoy this remote mountain river.

Trinity River

california rafting trips

The Klamath’s largest tributary, the Trinity River, forms the southern boundary to the rugged Salmon-Trinity mountains. Located in a wooded canyon west of historic Weaverville, it flows through a region long revered for its scenic beauty.

 

Easily accessible and a welcome alternative to the crowded American River, it is fast becoming one of our more popular summer trips. With many Class 2 and 3 rapids, the Trinity is ideal for summer rafting and inflatable kayaking — warm days and a cool flowing river.

 

A day of whitewater rafting is the perfect complement to camping in the backcountry, exploring old mining towns, or fishing the lakes and streams of the Trinity Alps.
