How to Pack for your Main Salmon Rafting Vacation

Get a better idea of each of the items on your Main Salmon 5 Day packing list. See an example of each item and understand why we recommend you pack it for the river.

Packing the Best Camera for Rafting

Choosing the right camera for whitewater rafting is an important decision. With so many options out there, we discuss the pros and cons of the more common cameras we see on the river.

Packing your Bags

Packing for your Main Salmon rafting vacation is a bit different than your standard vacation, but it's fairly simple. Just pack the items from our packing list into a duffel bag and we'll take care of the rest. A few pictures show the recommended duffel and the water-resistant ammo-can supplied to you.

Duffle Bag

All of your personal items should be packed into a soft-sided duffle bag approximately 12" x 13" x 24" in size. Due to aircraft weight allowances and raft space, please limit your gear to 20 pounds, not including beverages (see note on next page regarding beverages).

Packing
Gear Bag

Also upon arrival at the launch site of your trip, you will receive a water-resistant gear bag. This bag will contain your sleeping bag, sheet and ground tarp. You will put your duffle bag inside this bag, roll the top down and clip it securely to avoid getting your personal gear wet. Your personal gear bag will be available at camp each night of your trip.

Packing
Ammo Can

Upon arrival to the river's edge, you will be provided a water-resistant day ammo-can (approximately 7" x 13"). In this military surplus box, you will want to put those items you wish to access during the day (raingear, camera, medications, sun block, lip balm, river guidebook, etc). We recommend packing these items in a simple plastic grocery sack inside your duffle for easy transfer to your day bag at the launch site.
