Wilderness Camping at its Best!

We can take the load off!

Enjoy the Eagle Cap Wilderness without the pain of getting there; use your energy to hike, fish and explore the high country instead. Drop camps are tailored for your needs, from a simple one-way pack-in to full guided trips that include shelter and cooked meals!

If we don't have a trip to suit you, we'll make one to fit your needs.

DELUXE GUIDED SUMMER PACK TRIPS

eagle cap wilderness-1

$200 per person per day
4 person minimum 2 night minimum

We furnish the complete camp. This includes riding horses, pack stock, guide, wranglers, cooking and food. You furnish only your personal gear including clothing, sleeping bags, foam pad or air mattress and fishing gear. It takes approximately 4 hours to get to camp which is nestled in an alpine meadow with a rippling brook flowing through it. Your wrangler and cook will explain the many options you have for the next day's adventure. It may include short rides, hiking or longer rides to a lake or mountain peak to look over God's creation. The brook trout are plentiful if fishing is your thing or you might want to just sit around, read and laugh at those caught in traffic in the big cities. No alcohol provided. All deluxe trips are tent style.
