Expect everything you bring on the raft to get wet! Best options for clothing: bathing suit and/or shorts in the warmer weather, longer pants and sweater made of wool, nylon, fleece, or polypropylene in the colder weather. Sneakers or other shoes that can get wet (no flip-flops or Crocs!) Cotton Clothing such as blue jeans, sweatshirts, or t-shirts, is not appropriate for rafting since cotton keeps you cold when it gets wet. All Guests will be required to wear a Zoar Outdoor issued PFD(Personal Flotation Device) and Helmet.
Bedding is not provided, so be sure to bring pillows and sheets and blankets (or a sleeping bag). You should also bring quarters for the coin-operated showers as well as shampoo, etc. The paths through the campground are not lit, so please remember to bring a flashlight. Our camping is located a few hundred yards off Route 2 and across the river from a rail line. Train and vehicle traffic varies greatly from day to day, but some campers prefer to use ear plugs on busier nights.
Wear comfortable clothing appropriate for the season, but avoid loose clothing that could tangle in ropes or other gear. Skirts should be avoided. In late fall or winter months, it is better to come with too many articles of clothing than to come with not enough! We go in the rain, so come prepared with rain gear if needed. You should also remove any dangling jewelry and tie long hair back.
