Right here on the South Fork of the American we have a nice little class II section called C to G or Coloma to Greenwood.
On any given day you can find whitewater enthusiast out playing, practicing their rolls, eddy catching techniques and wet exits. We also have tubers who like to run this section. It is approximately 5.5 miles with access starting at Marshall Gold Discovery Parks North Beach parking lot and stopping at Greenwood Creek River Access (BLM). On the weekend Greenwood Creek parking lot can fill up rather fast. So what is a boater to do? Well the answer is simple book your seat on the Coloma Shuttle we offer two pickup times from Greenwood back to the Coloma area. Our mid-day shuttle is our most popular shuttle for this run and is perfect for those who get a parking spot at greenwood as the shuttle departs the parking at 12:50pm. This way you are parking your car at the take-out and boating down to your car at the end of your day. Our other shuttle option is our 4:50pm departure from Greenwood back to the Coloma area. With this option you are parking in the Coloma area and catching the shuttle at the end of your day. Cost is $10.00 per person for you & your gear on either of these shuttles. Please remember that the shuttle does run on a schedule and you must be at your pick up location 10 minutes early to help keep the shuttle on schedule.
To book a seat for either of these shuttles you would select the Gorge run with the closest time to your desired pick up for example you want be on our 12:50 shuttle you would choose Gorge @ 12:30 then you would select Greenwood Creek PICKUP for your pick up location. And then finish processing your reservation.
The Coloma Shuttle does sell out on weekends and advance reservations are highly suggested. We do not hold seats for walk-on, however if seats are available you may purchase one at the stop.
