Completion of this menu planner enables us to pack the food of your choice.  All members of your party must eat the same meal at the same time. If you have special dietary needs, let us know in advance.  If  menu selections are not made, our packers will make the selections for you.  When necessary, we reserve the right to make substitutions on your menu selections.

Using the River Point Menu Planner is easy. Meals are packed the same for the entire group. Select the same number of lunches as there are days in your canoe trip (ie: 5-day trip would have 5 lunches.) Select one less breakfast and one less dinner than the number of days in the trip. Determine how many times you would like a breakfast, lunch or dinner. Mark the number "1", if wanting a specific meal just once. If wanting the same meal more than once, indicate such with the number of times you desire that meal in the space.

All meals are packed according to park regulations.
No bottles, cans, or non-burnable containers are allowed.
