FOOD PACKING: Private Trip Food Outfitting

Food packing and outfitting for Hells Canyon on the Snake River, the Lower Salmon River, and surrounding area.

Going on a private rafting trip with a whole group and don’t want to handle packing the food?

We’ve got you covered.

We’ll do all the food planning, organizing, and packing at our super convenient pick up location.

Our food is delicious, locally sourced when possible, and scratch made. We do the scratch part in out kitchen so you don’t have do it on the river: house made marinades, salad dressings, cake mixes and bread mixes. You’ll be eating hearty, healthy and satisfying meals on the river – just as it should be.

Menu Example:

Need more or less days of food? No problem! Let us know and we’ll alter the menu to fit your river trip.


  • All ingredients to make meals
  • Spice kit
  • Coffee with creamer and sugar
  • Snacks
  • Ice (We know it can get HOT in those canyons, so we’ll be sure to pack you with enough ice to keep that delicious food cold.)


  • Charcoal
  • Lighter fluid
  • Matches
  • All beverages (except for coffee)
  • Different kinds of sweetener besides sugar
  • Soft goods: ziplocks, trash bags, tin foil, dish washing items, etc are also not included.

Would you like them to be included? Give us a call and we can add these items on for an additional fee.

Customizing a Menu:

Do you have people with allergies in your party? Or vegetarians? Vegan? Gluten Free? Just a picky eater? Let us know before finalizing the menu! We’d be happy to work with you and make sure that everyone eats delicious food throughout the whole trip.

We’ll also have everyone in the group fill out a food questionnaire to make sure everyone’ll be full and happy on the river trip.

Additional Alterations:

Want quick and easy cold breakfasts in the morning? Not into desserts? Have a bunch of kids on your trip? Let us know and we’ll make the food work for whatever kind of trip you’ve got going on.

How your food gets packed:

You bring the hard goods (coolers and dry boxes) and we’ll provide plenty of food to keep you full and happy on your river trip.

All refrigerated and frozen food will be chilling waiting to be put into your coolers, while the dry goods will be packed and organized into cardboard boxes by day.

Need coolers? We have coolers available to rent for $10/day.

Pick up and dropping off:

Pick up’s: Food pick ups can be scheduled the night before or the day of your launch. The pick up location is at 85 S Superior St in Cambridge, ID right in town on the main Highway 55 before you head into Hells Canyon. There is plenty of street parking for vehicles and trailers.

Not passing through Cambridge? We also deliver food to the Hells Canyon Dam or Whitebird, ID. Give us a call to chat details and pricing!

Drop off’s: If you bring your own coolers and gear, there may be no need to drop anything back off in Cambridge. If you will be passing Cambridge post-trip, we’ll pack you with the most reusable and environmentally friendly containers we can. If you’re not passing Cambridge, we’ll pack you with single use items and you won’t have anything to return.

Did you rent a cooler? Those will need to get back to Cambridge. If you’re not heading our way, we’ll work with you to make the return as easy as possible.
