Prepare to be amazed by the meals that our river guides will prepare for you...

For over 35 years, ECHO has perfected river recipes and dutch oven cooking that please everyone after a day of fun and sun. Perhaps best of all, there's no shopping, packing, preparation or clean-up for our guests, we take care of it all!

We love cooking for you

Imagine waking to the smell of bacon frying & coffee brewing in the fresh morning air. Each day, you will be served a hot breakfast of pancakes, french toast or omelets. We also provide cereal, yogurt, juice and fresh fruit. We want everyone to start the day energized for a great day of rafting!


Around midday, we will pull over for a lunch break. Lunches are usually served cold, to reduce the time of setting up a cook stove. Choices range from sandwiches, salads, wraps or our famous curry chicken salad. Juice and water will keep you hydrated through the afternoon.

Gourmet appetizers will satisfy you until dinner's ready

After a day of play, we will set up camp in the late afternoon. Appetizers of brie & crackers or chips with fresh salsa & guacamole are served while the guides prepare dinner. Hearty meals include lasagna, grilled steak, chicken or salmon. Fajita night has become legendary on our trips, and our guides love sharing our famous creation: River-Ritas! Meals are complemented with fresh salads, vegetables, pasta or garlic mashed potatoes.


This is one of our favorite parts of the day and know it'll be one of yours, too. Our guides specialize in dutch-oven baking and take pride in their chocolate and pineapple upside-down cakes.

Save room for dessert!

Kid Friendly

ECHO makes every effort to prepare for our pint-sized guests by providing kid-friendly options. If your child cringes at salmon, steak or lasagna, rest assured that our guides know how to keep your kids well-fed and happy.

9 out of 10 eight year olds give our peanut butter and pepperocini sandwiches 2 thumbs way up!


We provide coffee, hot chocolate, juice and plenty of water. Soda and beer are limited to two cans per person, per day. Additional beverages can be brought but we ask that you avoid glass containers. Bottles of wine or liquor can be stored safely by the guides in a metal box.
