Middle Fork Salmon River Vacation
AN UNFORGETTABLE VACATION
Because of our love and appreciation for the Middle Fork and our desire to see its historical, environmental and biological uniqueness preserved, we adhere to conservation-oriented practices. Our guides will advise you as to these concerns, and explain how to minimize the impacts of your visit to the river canyon.
Yet, that doesn't mean you'll lack for luxury. Our large supply raft runs ahead of our parties and carries the camp supplies and most duffel. Each night's camp will be waiting for you when you arrive after a day on the river. Large four person tents are provided for every two people, and chairs are set out to relax in while you gaze at the spectacular vistas surrounding camp. In fact, all you need to bring is your personal clothes. Everything else is provided, including the sleeping bag and pad.
Hungry?...Our fresh salads, breads, fish, fowl and campfire grilled meats - rival the finest fare of the finest restaurants. The best part is that the guides do all of the work, and they even do the dishes!
"I set out with my two children, without Sega & TV on a river trip. We returned with a love of the Middle Fork and a new extended family, in Solitude."

Besides great camp accommodations and fabulous food, the
river canyon itself provides visitors with its own special entertainment.
Birdwatchers will catch glimpses of a variety of avian species.
Western tanagers, evening grosbeaks, Lewis woodpeckers, Clark's
nutcrackers and golden eagles are but a few of the birds common
to the canyon. And although most of the deer and elk spend their
summer months in the higher mountain meadows, bighorn sheep
are still regularly seen along the lower portions of the river,
and an occasional black bear is spotted foraging along the bank.
There's also several hotsprings to enjoy. Sheepeater, Sunflower Flat, Hood Ranch, Whity Cox's and Hospital Bar all provide guests with an opportunity to soak in hot, bubbling mineral waters. Each trip will find us stopping at one or more of them either for camp, or for a brief visit.
