FEAST YOUR EYES
STAY FULL ON THE RIVER
RIVERSIDE FINE DINING
Just because you’re out in the middle the of the wilderness doesn’t mean you have to eat like it. On the Middle Fork, we eat gourmet all the way. Soon after you get to camp, you’ll be greeted with a delicious appetizer. Then the time is yours to hike, nap, fish, or hang around the campsite as our guides cook you a tasty meal, worthy of a 5-star restaurant.
Our recipes are influenced by Tim Filgate and cooked to perfection. Think you can’t make a lot in the wilderness? Think again! From the best cedar plank salmon to zesty tacos, salad dressings and marinades made from scratch, and Dutch oven desserts, you won’t be disappointed.

THAT’S WHAT THEY SAID
It was a fabulous life-experience with our family. This is our 3rd trip on the river but our first with MFRT. Everything was tops!! Safety of guests, getting the group to come together as a social entity, food, service, activities....all of it was fantastic. Worth every penny! Thank you!!!
Best trip. Better than I ever imagined! The crew was experienced and knowledgeable about the river. Food was terrific. Grant was an incredible host.
BEST trip EVER! Been on the trip 3 times and the guides, food, accommodations, wildlife always seem to get better each time! Highly recommend this trip - lifetime experience!
