Explore the Bob Marshall Wilderness at your own pace with a hiking drop camp. We will pack your gear into our Circus Creek Base Camp for a 5-day/4-night stay. Scenic day hikes abound (we can suggest several), and at the end of the day, you get to return to a base camp complete with a wall tent, cook stove, cooking utensils, cots and more – a home away from home.

This drop camp package includes gear packing services in and out of our Circus Creek Camp and use of all the amenities at camp. It does not include any guiding services or food provision, and participants must follow all camp procedures and be able to navigate in the backcountry by themselves. Drop camp parties must also supply their own satellite communication device.

The price listed is per person.  For this drop camp, we have a 4 person minimum (or the price of 4 people).  Base price for 4 people is $3640 and includes three pack animals to carry your gear. Additional people and pack animals may be added for an additional fee.

Hiking Guides and/or food for your trip may also be available upon request.

Contact us for available dates and more information about guides and food service.

Deposits are required at booking and are non-refundable. Trip balances are due by May 15 for summer trips and August 1 for fall trips unless otherwise specified. The balances are non-refundable after these due dates. We only give complete refunds in the event that you do not successfully draw a tag. Other than a non-successful draw, we do not give refunds for any reason. This includes but is not limited to: route changes due to wildfires, smoke, floods, trail conditions, a non-harvest hunt, or unprecedented weather events. We do not give refunds if personal health inhibits you from participating on a trip including exposure to an airborne virus or illness. Because of this, we STRONGLY recommend purchasing trip insurance.

Trip Rating Definitions



  • 6 – 10 mile travel days with some of those days requiring changes in elevation of 500 – 1500 ft. over several miles. Short portions of route may be off-trail.

Moderately Difficult

  • 8 – 12+ mile travel days with regular change in elevation totaling 2,500 feet, or more, over several miles. Off-trail hiking and routing finding with short portions of limited exposure possible.


  • 7 – 12+ mile travel days with regular changes in elevation over a few miles. Frequent off-trail hiking over uneven terrain with areas of exposure and route finding may be involved.

*Please note these descriptions are used for travel days only and are our attempt to provide a rating for the overall trip difficulty. On layover days we will offer optional hiking opportunities that may not be in keeping with the rest of the trip difficulty rating.

Additionally, changes in elevation are meant to represent the days’ starting and ending elevations, but not necessarily the total elevation lost and gained throughout the course of the day. If you have questions or concerns regarding trip difficulty and your abilities, please contact us.
