2019 Rafting Season on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River

We’re super excited for the 2019 season on the Middle Fork of the Salmon river. It’s been an EPIC snow year in Stanley, Idaho and we’re expecting an amazing whitewater season on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River. There’s still quite a bit of snow on the ground and it’s still snowing! Take a look at a recent photo from the Mountain Village Resort webcam located in Stanley, Idaho.



What does the 2019 season look like?

We’re expecting the start of the 2019 season to be a big whitewater year – great for kayakers and those looking for a fun whitewater rafting experience. Depending on what happens with runoff, the whitewater should be pretty incredible on The Middle Fork of the Salmon River. Our SEASON 1 trips are expecting lots of whitewater and excitement. We offer Kayak Support Trips for those looking to bring your own boat, rent a boat or use one of our inflatable kayaks. Kayak support trips allow you to paddle your own boat, but still enjoy our signature PAMPERED CAMPINGTM experience.

Once we get past runoff, we’re forecasting the river flows to steady out and still offer some great whitewater for our SEASON 2 trips.

If you’re curious about a rafting trip on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River, this is the year to do it! Have questions or want to find the right trip for you and your group?

The Middle Fork of the Salmon River is regarded by many as the greatest wilderness whitewater river in the World, and it is easy to understand why. With more than 100 miles of free-flowing, crystal clear water, it lies in the heart of the largest federally protected wilderness area in the continental United States, the famous Frank Church – River of No Return Wilderness in Central Idaho.The Middle Fork of the Salmon River is the flagship of our nation’s protected Wild and Scenic Rivers and was one of the original rivers designated in 1968! The U.S. Forest Service carefully protects this treasure, issuing a limited number of permits to experience this amazing place.

We’re also offering a special discount for our June 17th launch, so if you’re interested in those launch dates be sure to book soon as this trip will fill up fast! You can book your trip by clicking here.
