Many of our guests bring their own kitchen items to cook at camp. Please be aware that we do not provide any BBQ’s or kitchen items, you are welcome to bring your own.

Open Fires – We usually have a ban on open flames (campfires, charcoal BBQ’s etc) in the peak summer months when California is especially susceptible to fires. We do not usually allow any campfires, charcoal BBQ’s or any open flame at camp. Propane cook stoves & BBQ’s are allowed, so we suggest you plan on bringing those if you are cooking at camp.

*If you are looking to go camping on the river, but not interested in a rafting trip, please Contact Us. We do not always offer just a camping option, and if we are not, we are happy to give you information on local camping options!
