We are an outdoor wedding facility and campground located on the American River near Coloma, California: a tiny town with a big history. Back in 1848, gold was discovered less than a mile away and shortly after began the largest gold rush in history which put Coloma on the map. Although the glittering hype has long settled, there are still treasures to be found here in the form of outdoor beauty, recreation, and "I DO's".
We are better known as Earthtrek Expeditions. Whitewater rafting was our speciality from 1977 until 2016 when we decided to partner with O.A.R.S., one of the most respected outfitters in the world, and have them operate the rafting portion of our company. We started operating our own campground though back in 1993. Over the last several decades our campground facilities have evolved into the focal point of our operation. It was only natural to begin hosting a unique style of weddings designed for those who love the great outdoors and desire a quiet, comfortable place to tie the knot. We are proud to offer a variety of wedding celebration options to best suit your style and budget. Please visit the "Wedding Packages & Prices" tab for more information. For the more adventurous, consider adding a day of
whitewater rafting for your guests to make the celebration even more memorable.
Here in the Sierra Nevada foothills, summers can be extremely hot and dry, so we highly recommend considering a spring or fall wedding. Since we offer other events besides weddings, available dates in the spring can be limited. Please contact us for available dates in the spring and fall.
Please take a look around and learn more about what we have to offer. We understand how significant the big day is for you, your fiancé, and your friends and family. Finding a venue that best fits your dreams and budget can be a stressful process and we want to help you achieve your visions. Please reach out if you have any questions and we will be happy to help.
