Permits to raft on the Salt River in 2007 from the White Mountain Apache
Tribe will be available at the Mild to Wild station near first campground
at the highway 60 Bridge put-in. Mild to Wild will be open to sell these
permits from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm and from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm daily except Tuesdays when they will be closed. The permits are $15 per person per day.

The preferred method of payment is a check made out to the White Mountain Apache Tribe. They will also accept cash, but no credit cards. As in the past, each individual must be present to purchase a permit, so you can't just send one person to buy them for the entire group. Permits are also available at the Carrizo Junction store, approximately 20 miles north of the highway 60 bridge, daily from 6:00 am to 9:00 pm.

Please note that it is not possible to purchase these permits in advance.
Please be kind and do not contact Mild to Wild's office by phone or e-mail
concerning the sale of permits from the White Mountain Apache Tribe. You may also wish to thank them for preforming this vital public service.

Also attached here is a list of contact information for the Salt River
Outfitters, who are the only ones permitted by the US Forest Service to
perform shuttles for the Salt River on the Tonto National Forest.

I hope this information helps. If you are looking for a way to help us and
each other out, one thing you might consider is taking all of the rocks
that people use, to weigh down tent stakes and other things, and return
them to the unobtrusive rock piles from which they came. In a similar
manner you could disperse unused firewood. Our rangers frequently do this, but don't have time to get to all the camps all the time. It really helps to give the river more of a natural look, and hopefully ends up giving everyone more of a sense of Wilderness and being away. Thanks.
