There can't be enough superlatives used to describe the experiences our incredible hosts and guides showed my partner and myself on our recent 6-day/5-night white water rafting and camping experience. In my first half century I had never camped and this was my first experience which sets an incredibly high standard for my second half century. I am a foodie... More

We have just returned from 6 fabulous days of rafting down the Middle Fork river. It was truly a life-altering experience. The river itself has three different stages, but it changes from year to year and week to week, depending on the snowfall and the time of year. When we went, we were able to raft all of the stages.... More

Middle Fork River Tours does an exceptional job of providing a wilderness adventure in comfort. The food is fabulous, and you would be amazed what they can cook in a Dutch oven. Camp is ready when you get off the river. There are daily choices between inflatable kayaks, paddle boats and leisurely oar boats if you want to relax or... More

The adventure of the rapids and camping experience was exhilarating. The food was delicious, I never knew you could have homemade cinnamon roles on a... More

The experience was all we hoped for and made better by MFRE. The guides, equipment, food and activities were excellent. We were able to either be in the paddle raft or in inflatable kayaks the whole time and so had a full quotiant of fun. The meals and beverages were varied, healthy and enjoyable. Those who just wanted to float... More

Our family had the best time sharing 6 days of white water rafting, fishing, food and fun with the super-cool guides from Middle Fork River Tours. Scoop, Sena, Aaron, Ted, Reese, Helen & John went out of their way to make this an experience we will remember as a trip of a lifetime. After long days of rafting (sometimes into... More

I've rafted several rivers in the U.S. including the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon and the Chattooga in Tennessee, and without a doubt this trip was - see subject line. And beside the river and surrounding landscape itself being majestic and breathtaking beyond description, the 7 reasons the trip was so outstanding were the 7 ROW Adventures guides -... More

I LOVE this river. This is my second trip kayaking (hardshell) down the Middle Fork with Echo River Trips and Phil and Mary DeRiemer. Six days and 100 miles of awesome paddling, great wilderness scenery, and the beauty and feeling that only a remote place can bring to you. Echo does a great job with their raft support, professional and... More
