Back at camp you may do some exploring, play horseshoes, volleyball, Ping-Pong, or just relax and listen to the sounds of nature until dinner.

What To Bring
Bring whatever your comfortable sleeping in. Tents, cots, sleeping bags, ground cloths and the like are all acceptable. We also have limited accommodations for motor homes, 5th wheels, and tent trailers. These are available on a first come first serve basis. Please let us know.
Remember to bring a flash light, a few changes of clothing, include a warm sweatshirt, an extra pair of shoes, swimwear, toiletries. For campers arriving on Friday night you will need to bring cookware, etc.
Bring a rafting partner - no one can raft alone! Although you will enjoy all of your meals at camp, it is also suggested that you bring a small soft ice chest that zips shut with a carabiner clip to keep your belongings in the raft (no glass bottles, please). Don’t forget your sunscreen, sunglasses, a disposable waterproof camera, water toys, and secure footwear. Tennis shoes, water shoes, or any tight fitting shoes or secure fitting sandals such as Tevas are acceptable for rafting. You must have the proper footwear to raft (no flip-flops or bare feet).
What To Leave at Home
NO DOGS, please!!!
River rafting requires a certain level of agility, so please leave your pets at home and bring children only over the age of 12.
Pregnant women should not raft.
Please remember: Alcohol and rafting do not mix. Please raft responsibly. Notice: you are rafting at your own risk!
Please bring only personal sound systems to camp, such as iPods with earphones.
Some folks prefer to enjoy the serene sounds of the natural environment and the river.
