Catered BBQ and Rafting Trip
Enjoy one of the most beautiful rivers in CA in style. Whether its a business trip, family gathering, or just getting out with friends this is the all-inclusive treat. We meet you in beautiful Knights Ferry where you will start your trip. Here you will check-in, receive your safety instructions and load into our high quality rafts. All the rafting gear is provided for you. You float down our beautiful Class I-II Stanislaus River for 3-4 hours enjoying the scenery and clear flowing river. At our private riverside resort (nice shaded grass areas, flushing toilets, and not open to the general public) we will meet you to help you out of the river and over to your BBQ area. Here you will dine on a great catered meal by L&M Blodgett Catering. Meal includes bbq chicken and tri-tip, 5 different kinds of salads, homemade beans and garlic bread, drinks and of course dessert. Then at your leasure you will board our shuttle bus and wonder why you have never done this in the past- all for only $54 per person!
