Relaxing and Fun


Go with the flow and tube down the American River! Tubing on the river is a great family-friendly, self-guided activity. 

The stretch of river in front of Coloma Resort is perfect for tubing in the months of May through September. Launch your tube right below the Trouble Maker Rapid and ride the current to Henningson Park in Lotus.
