Food Service for Rock Creek Pack Station 2018

Our outfitted trips of trail rides, base camps, all expense service, all-inclusive hiking trips are trips where we provide the cook and three meals a day. Menus may vary according to campfire restrictions and the mule to person limitation rules in the wilderness. Private all-expense trips and outfitted hiking with pack stocks may want a custom menu. We do our best to accommodate those requests.

We accommodate vegetarians and our guests’ meat preferences, wherever possible.
Those with gluten free diets will pay an additional surcharge of up to $50 per day.
