Rafts used on the Middle Fork of the Salmon
The types of rafts and boats you'll be using on your Middle Fork Salmon River vacation are explained in detail below. The ride and adventure level between the Oar-Rig and the Paddle Raft offer unique experiences.
The rapids of the Middle Fork are class II-IV and therefore a little more powerful and exciting than in some other multi-day expeditions. The rapids here are also spaced nicely apart from each other to add excitement throughout each day, and throughout the trip.
Generally, there is a variety of river craft on all trips and most people enjoy trying all available craft. However, there are logistical constraints that also determine how many and which type of craft is offered. It is always important to come with a flexible attitude about sharing the various craft opportunities.
