What is a drop camp?
This is where we pack you and/or your gear on horseback to a designated camp spot. We then leave you for a specific amount of time and then come back for you. You may either ride or you may hike into your camp site
We offer Outfitted and Non-Outfitted Drop Camps for summer time adventurers who prefer a more do-it-yourself type of trip. All of the Summer Drop Camps are located in the backcountry best accessed by horseback and pack string. These camps are located in some beautiful country.
You choose the destination and we take care of the work. We can pack in you and your camp, our camping equipment, or you can choose to just have us pack in your camp and hike in yourself.
