Class I Rapids

The starting location is a reasonable drive from Fresno. The natural beauty of Fresno County and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water make the trip here worthwhile. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way this area has a large number of paddling places. The average California
    whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit harder to master than those in other states, so better not forget that lots of rivers here are not for beginners. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great
campgrounds nearby. A bit of exercise and just hanging out with mother nature are sure to keep you coming back for more. There are some good hotels near the river, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick.

Briefly about the general area:
Millerton Lake State Park is a delightful place to visit, and while you're here you will meet lots of people from nearby Friant. For the duration of the summertime
here at Sunshine Adventures, high temperatures frequently reach the 90's. Summer overnight lows plunge down to the 60's.
