When you plan to be out there on the river, oftentimes without cellphone reception, etc., having a RiverMaps guidebook will help you get prepared and stay prepared. It's great to be able to get information on campsites and water features you might not be able to find otherwise and to be able to study new sections of river.

Why we love RiverMaps Guide Books

RiverMaps Guide Books are
based off USGS topographic
maps. Which means they have
the most accurate and detailed
information of any guide book.
They not only show you the river,
but help you understand nearby
land features as well.

The maps include detailed
information about each
campsite, so you can know
beforehand the size, quality and
notable features of the site,
helping you prepare properly.
The guide books have details for
more hikes than any other river
guide books, complete with hike
descriptions and trail maps on
the topographic maps. We
especially appreciated this
feature while on the Grand
Canyon, when we were able to
 hit all the best side hikes the
Grand Canyon had to offer.
RiverMaps are fully waterproof.
When rowing the canyon, you
want a book you can leave out
on your raft. The River Maps
guide handles splashes and
immersion and still looks new
by the end of the trip.
History and Geology features.
The RiverMaps guide tells you
where you are and helps you
understand the significance of
the area and what feeds the river
ecosystem. From explaining how
the bedrock formed to describing
the first descent of the rapid,
River Maps helps you build
connection to place.
