Specific personal pack lists are e-mailed to you upon reservation. If you do not have the pack list, they are available on our web site (noahsrafting.com) 3-4 Wilderness trips and scroll to the bottom of either the Lodging or the Camping page to find your pack lists.
All of your clothing and personal items should fit into a travel bag about the size of a backpack, no more than 25 pounds. A good rule of thumb is to use a bag the size of what you would carry onto an airplane. When you meet us on the morning of your trip, we will provide you with two dry bags. One that you can put your travel bag into or transfer your clothing and personal gear into. The first, larger bag is generally only available when at the lodge or camp. The second dry bag, a smaller day bag is always readily available with your personal items (sunglasses, camera, sunscreen, medication, long sleeve shirt, windbreaker, etc.).
If you are on one of our camp or camp/lodge combo trips, Please feel free to bring your favorite sleeping bag. If you do not have your own bag, please indicate on your questionnaire that you would like Noah’s to provide a bag for you. Please, no pillows – instead bring just a pillowcase, which you can fill with some clothing to create a pillow. We supply everything else including cots, sleeping pads/air mattresses, tents, tables and chairs, camp tarp if needed, camp lanterns and complete kitchen and tableware.
If you are on our lodge trip, all cabins and rooms have beds with fresh linens, bathroom with shower and sink, hot and cold running water, bath and hand towel and wash cloths. Some lodging accommodations have a shared bath to two bedrooms.
Clothing choices: For rafting/kayaking river attire, clothing should be fast drying. Cotton materials, such as jeans and sweatshirts are poor choices for wearing on the river, especially in cool or wet weather. When they get wet, they may take a long time to dry. Synthetic materials such as nylon dry quickly and are also cool on hot days. For early season raft/kayak trips and fishing trips, modern day fabrics such as capilene, fleece, polortec, microfiber materials etc. are recommended for added comfort and warmth.
If you are sensitive to the sun, for added protection, be sure to bring long sleeved shirts, long pants and socks that you don’t mind getting wet plus a broad brim hat with retainer or chin strap. Sunburn on the river happens fast and can be severe.
