Drop Camps

When you don’t have the time or energy to haul your gear into the backcountry and set up camp, the Paragon Guides “Drop Camp” program may be just for you.

  • Hunting Camps, Wilderness Base Camps, Fishing Camps, Game Transport
  • Hire Paragon Guides to deliver your gear to a pre­determined campsite or hut.
  • We use a minimum of two llamas to establish a drop camp. Each llama can carry 60­80 pounds including top load articles.
  • Typically one guide will travel into your site with llamas and gear and leave after making sure that your gear is secure or you have arrived. Some distances and trail conditions require that a second staff person assist the guide.

Rate Summary
Our rates are based on vehicle travel distance to/from trailheads and number of llamas used. Therefore, drop camp costs can vary considerably. Our cost breakdown follows this summary.

  • $55.00 per llama, per day
  • Llama transportation: $2.00 per mile for paved road; $3.00­$5.00 per mile for gravel and unimproved road.
