Camping Made Easy

Whatever your trip choice, you'll find that every Western River Expedition is packed with the same first class amenities: Deluxe tents and cots, comfortable camp chairs, delicious Dutch-oven dinners, buffet breakfasts and lunches, expertly-trained guides, and top-quality rafts and equipment - all included in the trip price. Some outfitters impose additional fees for camping gear and rafting equipment, but not Western.

We make adventure easy. All you have to do is show up with your duffle bag of personal belongings and we provide the rest! Watch the video below to hear what our guests have to say.

Camping & Dining with Western River Expeditions

When you're out here, the right equipment makes all the difference - and Western provides everything you need. You can relax while your guides do all the cooking.

Further Instruction About Toilet Facilities

Western uses a "port a-potty" system that is set up each day in a secluded location that assures privacy. This is essentially a toilet without the fancy plumbing and is available from the time you pull into camp each afternoon until you leave camp the next day. Along with the toilet, a system to wash your hands with fresh water will be available.

Grand Canyon Upper Grapefruit

Good Morning!

Steaming coffee provides welcome warmth to counter the cool sand between your toes. You might think you're still dreaming when you see plates of steaming flapjacks, fresh fruit and scrambled eggs, but it's the way every morning on the river begins. Western's guides are not only trained river professionals, they're talented campfire cooks as well. And Western always serves fresh food on all river adventures.

Grand Canyon Lower Lunch Lady

Riverside Smorgasbord

A wonderful selection of fresh meats and cheeses, delicious breads, along with crisp vegetables and a variety of spreads satisfy hearty lunchtime appetites after a morning in the canyon. Tasty chicken and veggie wraps or perhaps chicken salad pitas may also be part of Western's mid-day buffet. At all times, unlimited quantities of icy lemonade and fresh water are available to quench your thirst.

Grand Canyon Lower Steak Coals

Campfire Dinner with Flair

While you enjoy delectable appetizers and relax and at the river's edge, the guides prepare a dinner that is sure to surprise and please. Every night is different, but the menu will likely include grilled chicken breasts, tender steaks, pasta, or fresh fish accompanied by tossed green salad with your choice of dressing, vegetables, and side dishes. Dutch-oven cake and cobblers or other scrumptious desserts deliciously top off the evening meal.
