We, including my husband, several cousins, friends, and people previously unknown to us. went down the Middle Fork of the Salmon River from August 5-10 with Clint Frank and his crew of six. Before we left, I had thought the price slightly expensive: not now - it was worth every penny and the problems of getting there from west central... More

Just got back from a week of rafting on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River with Middle Fork River Tours. Clint and Molly Frank run a first rate operation with experienced guides and top-notch service. Their equipment was excellent: Good sleeping mats and bags, and, if you have to sleep in a tent, theirs were fine. They provide dry... More

My family and I recently enjoyed a wonderful vacation early August 2014 with Rocky Mountain River Tours. It was an incredible adventure with a top notch company. They were incredibly organized and helpful, from the day we put our deposit down until the day we said goodbye. The river guides were professional and knowledgeable. They worked extremely hard to make... More

We booked the Middle Fork rafting trip with ARTA, and were not disappointed. We had a great team of guides and boatmen, (and woman) who took excellent care of us. The scenery was beautiful, many hikes, fishing, and even a hot spring. The campsites were gorgeous, the food excellent and the scenery outstanding. We were shown ancient Indian rock art,... More

Loved it. Small group, expert guides and the food was first class. This was some awesome adventure. Glamping at it's best. Tents and comfortable matresses, gourmet all the way. Utilizing Dutch ovens, we quickly learned that when we could smell the cinnamon rolls, quiche or pizza, it was time to dine. We were offered the opportunity to kayak, paddle in... More

So, my biggest problem during our 6 days of river rafting was coming up with new superlatives so as not to sound redundant! Clint and Molly Frank are the wonderful proprietors of Middle Fork River Tours. They leave no stone unturned to make your river trip an unforgettable experience.A day on the river can be unpredictable. It can be a... More

We took a six day rafting trip down the Middle Fork with Middle Fork Wilderness Outfitters on the last week of July 2014. The river was clear and the rapids large enough to get cooling splashes on hot summer afternoons. We saw plenty of wildlife, the fishing was great and the scenery was outstanding. The guides knew the best hikes,... More

I have a fear of water, and rafting, quite honestly, scared me to death. However, I really didn't want to miss the memories that would be made while my friends and family were on the river. So I went. Thanks to the expertise of the MFRE guides, I had a wonderful time! I always felt safe and knew that they... More

Clint and Molly, the owners of this fine outfit, put together a nonstop breathtaking adventure. Everything that you experience in the trip is simply wonderful. The guides are knowledgeable and fun, the food is to die for (I haven't eaten that good for a week straight since my mother's food), the rapids, the camping, the fishing, and the scenery and... More
