State of the Art Equipment: When you are camping in the wilderness, we understand that you do not need to worry about your equipment.  We believe in providing "top of the line" equipment and so the equipment that we send out on trips is the same equipment we take with us when we paddle the wilderness ourselves.   Our outfitter tents are easy to set up, dome shaped and sturdy; and you can choose as large a one as you like.  Our sleeping bags and pads are clean, comfortable, roomy and warm.  Camp is your home away from home.  We see it as our job to assure you a clean and comfortable home.

When reserving items for partial outfitting please be aware that charges are per calendar day and no half day rentals are available.   Canoe rentals do include paddles, vests, and parking for one vehicle.  Additional vehicles will be charged the $5.00/day rate.  Showers are not included with canoe rentals, but you can add one to your trip for the low cost of $6.00 or make your trip even more enjoyable by taking advantage of the bunkhouse, breakfast, and shower package for only $28 per person.  A bunkhouse, breakfast, and shower package includes a private bunkhouse for your group the night before your trip, a hot pancake breakfast the morning of your trip, and use of the shower house before and after your trip.
