2022 Smith River Raft Package Special: $110/Day for the river days, Plus, $50 to pick up the raft the day before your launch date. [Plus, $25/Day to rent a Raft Trailer (if needed)].
What’s Included in our Rental Raft Package for the Smith River: 1- Top-of-the-line Self Bailing Raft (Our AIRE and NRS rafts are almost always less than 2 seasons old as we sell some of our rental fleet every Summer/Fall and get new ones each Spring. (Let us know if you are interested in one of our rental fleet rafts!). 2- Custom, NRS Frame configured to your needs. 3- High Back Padded Drain Hole Rower’s Seat for ultra comfort and back support (on some of our rafts/frames). 4-Aluminum Dry Box w/ 1.5″ Thick Closed Cell Foam Padded Top behind the rower (offering lots of secure, dry storage and comfortable to sit on both in the boat and as nice bench in camp). 5- Three, matching Sawyer Oars [or Cataract Oars] (2 to row, 1 spare) (counterbalanced when appropriate, some have Gilman Grips or optional Oar Rights). 6- Anchor and 40′-50′ of Rope. 7– Very Complete Repair Kit with plenty of tools & materials & instructions (AIRE Repair, NRS Repair). 8– Heavy-Duty Hand Pump (K-Pump) [and an electric pump if you have to take the raft to Camp Baker deflated]. 9- Comfortable PFDs (“life jackets”) up to 5 per boat. 10- Bowline Bag with 75′ of Rope and Carabiner (for tying off boat at the camps -can also be used as a rescue throw rope). 11- Enough NRS Heavy-Duty Cam Straps to secure the frame and spare oar to the raft and to secure the raft/frame/oars/gear to the trailer or your vehicle. (Those straps can then be used to secure your gear in the boat when loaded for the river.) All our Rental Boats are kept at our Craig store and are picked up and dropped back off at that location. We do not shuttle boats or vehicles to or from the Smith River. (It’s about a 2 hour drive from Craig to White Sulphur Springs. It’s less than 1 hour from Eden Bridge to Craig.) If you’d like to set-up a shuttle, there are some resources on the FWP Smith River Vendor tab. All do a good job but our top choice for sure is Smith River Shuttle (Great peeps and they wash your vehicle and trailer at the take out!)
