This years Community Raft Swap will take place at Camp Lotus on Saturday, October 6th, from 9-4. This is a great community gear garage sale, with rafts, kayaks, canoes, inflatable kayaks, SUP’s, life jackets, paddles, oar frames, throw bags, wet suits, dry suits, repair gear, coolers and camping gear.

At the Raft Swap, you can drop your gear off at 7:00 a.m., and we will tag it/sell it for you. You can go out and paddle the South Fork, then return in the afternoon to pick up your cash.

For seasoned paddlers, it’s time to clean out your stash and get some cash. For new paddlers, this is a great opportunity to get a used kayak or raft and join us on the river.

Drop off your no longer needed gear on Friday the 29th between 6pm & 9pm or early on Saturday morning from 7am to 9am. If you are selling your gear the fee is 10% of the sale price and will be donated to a non-profit of your choice (FOR, SoFAR, ACME or ICO). There are several to choose from. Just ask the folks at the gear swap and they will make it happen for you.

Camp Lotus is located at 5461 Bassi Road, Lotus, CA. About 45 minutes from Sacramento, east on Highway 50.

Thank you to all the dedicated folks who put on the gear swap each year – you know who you are and we appreciate all of your hard work on this event. And thanks to Camp Lotus for the great venue.
