The Robertson River is a nice weekend family float trip that is easy on the budget and pays big rewards in fun and adventure. A quick bush plane flight out of Tok puts you in the heart of the Eastern Alaska Range. Wildlife abounds and the take-out is conveniently located on the Alaska Highway.

From the main put-in strip it is a 6-7 hour float to the bridge. The upper section is accessible only by Super Cub and it adds another 3 1/2 hours. This upper section is class II-III. Dry suit or splash jacket is recommend for the upper section if done in a pack raft.
