We provide thick foam Paco Pads for sleeping. Foam pads help make sleeping and relaxing easy after a great rafting trip day.
You will enjoy sleeping under the stars on our comfortable cots (motorized trips). Note: cots do not fit inside our tents.
In case of inclement weather or if requested, we provide 2 person tents.
You will receive 2 waterproof bags. One will be for your “sleep kit” which will contain a sleeping bag, foam pad and ground cloth. The second bag will be for your personal clothing items.
Our ammo cans keep important items dry including sunscreen, medication, and other items you may need quick access to during your rafting trip.
Enjoy your trip with comfortable and relaxing camp chairs. After a great day of river rafting use one of these camp chairs to enjoy a great evening by the river.
We emphasize sanitation and cleanliness on the river. Portable hand-washing devices are set up in every camp and during lunch breaks.
Portable toilets facilities are set up at each camp during the trip.
A Coast Guard approved life jacket will be fitted to you on the first day of your trip.
We provide you with a souvenir 32 oz water bottle and 16 oz coffee mug to use for the duration of your trip.

Dining on the River
We were truly amazed at the variety and quality of the meals day after day. – Eric S.
Delicious Dutch-oven dinners, sandwich bar lunches, and hearty camp breakfasts are prepared by the crew throughout your river trip. Our meals are nutritious and delicious. We incorporate a variety of sustainable foods from local sources. With a complement of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, pasta, meat and dairy, clients have a variety of food from which to choose. Although we do not serve a “vegetarian” menu, we do provide enough fresh produce and non-meat items that most vegetarians get along fine for the week they are on the river. Our meals are self-serve, so guests find it easy to pick and choose what they eat.
If you have any questions about the meals we provide or if you wish to discuss your particular diet needs, please call or email our office. We will let you know if we are able to accommodate your requests or we may suggest that you bring some of your own food items to supplement our menu.
