Thread: Camracks to Dawson in a RAFT?

    Default Camracks to Dawson in a RAFT?

    Hi all. Wondering if anyone has (or knows someone who has) floated the Yukon River from Camracks to Dawson in a raft. Considering a stretch on the Yukon this summer with our 4 year old and but I'm not finding any info about rafting that section of river and I'm concerned about how slow it would be compared to a canoe.

    PS - I have a 14' Superduper Puma (which doesn't have a ribbed floor so it is tad slower than say an Avon).

    Well, I have not floated that stretch but I have Dawson to Eagle and stretches
    below Eagle to Circle in rafts. The Yukon is not my favorite river! Way too boring.
    Although I have always wanted to float above the White river mouth just to see the
    difference in the river.
    Carmacks to Dawson is 260 miles. Nothing fast about the Yukon. The most fascinating thing
    about this stretch to me would be seeing the river above and then below the White river mouth. The
    sight of the Yukon changing is suppose to be quite spectacular.
    Enjoy the trip, should be great family float.

    Thanks. Approximately how many miles were you doing in a day in your raft?

    About 35. Easy days, enjoyed the camping. I'd figure 7-8 days for your trip with family.
