Our daughter had a wonderful time and couldn’t stop talking about all the staff and campers. She left kayak camp feeling confident in her ability to wet exit and read water. She didn’t get her roll but in listening to her process the experience, it’s clear her instructors and staff were supportive, knowledgeable and fun! She/we can’t wait for next summer. As soon as she got in the car, she was talking about the two week option.

The crew at Salmon River Adventure Co were amazing, kind and knew their stuff. My children went for a weeklong summer camp and had a blast. We will be back for certain. It’s a perfect little spot along the river -pastoral and pristine. Our hosts Polly and Tommy were welcoming kind and oh so generous. Deepest gratitude for a wonderful week on the river. see you next season.

My 15-year-old son finally asked to learn how to paddle. Rather than sacrifice him to the river gods, like the well-meaning friends who taught me 30 years ago, we decided learning from experts was the way to go. The combination of delicious food, non-stop games/activities for the kids (when they're not in the river) and a stellar location made for an ideal week off-the-grid. The instructors were patient, knowledgeable and encouraging. Our trip was truncated due to injury and a forest fire but neither did anything to take away from the experience. My son has the caught the bug and made clear his intention to be back next summer for more. I'm fully onboard.

Can't recommend Salmon River Adventure Company highly enough. Had an amazing whitewater raft trip on the lower river the first day and decided on a full-day inflatable kayak trip the second. Polly and Tommy are outstanding hosts and our guides (David, Karley, and Allie) were fantastic. Will definitely be returning!

The owners, Polly and Tommy, have created something truly magical at the Salmon River Adventure Company. It's a spectacular riverside location on the site of a former Boy Scout camp with all the facilities you need and nothing you don't.I camped for a week with my two kids (ages 12 and 14) who were part of a kid's kayaking camp (Full disclosure, I'm friends with the owners, so I got to camp with them). Both my kids had an incredible time and were paddling class II-III whitewater with confidence by the end of the week. Their guides made their experience so fun, safe, and inspiring that I'm now shopping for two new kayaks.The camping is peaceful, the bathhouse is clean and newly renovated, and the kitchen serves up tasty meals. Most importantly, the staff is amazing, with tons of experience and positive, infectious energy.Whether you're staying for a week and learning to kayak for the first time, or just rafting for a day, I can guarantee that the team at SRAC will provide you and your family with an amazing adventure.
