While there you can enjoy the great fishing, day hiking, or just relaxing on the rivers edge! These are all-inclusive trips where we provide the camp gear, a camp cook, and food; just bring your personal items! (more details above) We offer these camps in several locations in the Emigrant Wilderness based on time of year and snow conditions but are always located at one of our premier trout fishing locations.

Possible Base Camp Locations:

**Most of these trips are private group trips, however throughout the season there will be open base camps that can accommodate smaller groups (less than 5 people) by combining smaller parties together at the same base camp. Each person is free to do whatever they want during the day but meals and nights will be together at the base camp.
