Saturday Meeting Place and Times:
Meet at 10:00am at 2nd exit to Ringer Loop Rd and boat launch.  This is where you will meet up with Don, your trip leader, if you are not camping.
Be sure to bring sunscreen, water toys, and BYOB.
If camping bring something to share for Saturday night’s group dinner.
Note:  No pets please!

This is very a gentle river float on a Class 0 river (aka a beer float).  Bring your own floating device such as an inflatable kayak, boat, inner tube, multi-person floating island, etc.   Alternatively, you may rent one from our put-in spot at Bighorn.  

Trip Leader:  Don Guerin 425-286-9246

Optional:  Drive over Friday and camp out at Yakima River RV Park.   Don plans on camping Friday and Saturday nights and returning to Seattle on Sunday.   Campsites can be reserved by clicking the link below and filling out the reservation tab.  Be sure to mention Snojoke as the group.

Camping:  $35.00/night Don & Kathy will be in the Snojoke Group Camp sit.

Please register at  or email Don so we know how many to expect at the put-in!!!  RAIN CANCELS – those registered will be notified by Thursday night should rain cancel.

Note:  The Snojoke general liability insurance does not cover river rafting.  All participants that register for this event are considered to be registering for camping only and not river rafting.  Those choosing to float the river will be doing so at their own risk!  .
