This is very a gentle river rafting float on a Class 0 river (aka a beer float).  Bring your own floating device such as an inflatable kayak or boat, inner tube, multi-person floating island, etc. or you may rent one from our put-in spot at Bighorn.  Note:  Neil and Nancy have extra kayaks if needed.

Optional:  Drive over Friday and camp out at Bighorn.  Don plans on camping Friday and Saturday nights and returning to Seattle on Sunday.   Note:  This campground does not take reservations nor do they have a phone or email so they cannot be contacted.  If you plan on arriving late Friday night, let Don know so campsites can be saved.
