Rafting & Paddle Board

The Carson River runs right through the east side of Carson City. It flows year-round but is floatable from May through June. The section from the dam to Deer Run Bridge is milder class 1 and 2 rapids. While the section through the Carson River Canyon to Dayton, NV can get up to class 3 and 4 rapids.  Click here for the Aquatic Trail Map

And of course, Lake Tahoe is our backyard. Carson City goes all the way to the shores of Tahoe between Sand Harbor and Glenbrook. Some of the most beautiful and undeveloped shoreline in Carson City’s.  Prime for getting on the lake and enjoying some solitude, the way it was meant to be.
