Trip is Full. North Platte River: Saratoga to I-80 June 24-26, 2022 (Friday-Sunday) Group size limit: 16

June 24 - June 26

Join RMCC for this Class I run through the beautiful Wyoming landscape full of birds and other wildlife, just a half-day drive from Denver. This is a 3 day, 2 night canoe camping trip. We’ll complete the car shuttle either Thursday afternoon or early Friday morning. (Trip leader is going up Thursday afternoon and hoping for help with the shuttle)  The shuttle takes approximately 1 ½ hours and all paddlers must be ready to launch by 10 am Friday morning.

 

Thursday night:   For anyone who would like to go up Thursday afternoon or evening, I would like to get a site at Pick Bridge, where we will also camp Friday night. Pick Bridge has 3 campsites and since we have a large group, getting a suitable site Thursday night will be desirable!

 

Friday:  We will have a full day of paddling, getting on the water by 10 am, to reach our camp at Pick Bridge. This campsite has a toilet.

Saturday:  We will be paddling most of the day with an early stop at the Overland trail cemetery/historical site. We will be camping on private land Saturday night. There is NO toilet at this campsite. ***Each paddler must have their own personal waste system. All waste must be carried out.

 

Sunday:  We paddle Sunday morning and plan to take out between noon and 2:00, allowing people time to return home Sunday afternoon or take a leisurely soak in the nearby Saratoga Hot Springs.

 

***It is mandatory that you have a Wyoming Game & Fish Invasive Species decal for your boat and your boat also needs to be inspected when entering Wyoming (https://wgfd.wyo.gov/Fishing-and-Boating/Aquatic-Invasive-Species-Prevention). 

This is an ACA-sanctioned trip requiring either an ACA membership or a $10 single-event fee per person.  

Maximum number of people : can be a variety of boats but 16 people maximum
