American Packrafting Association


Non-profit organization


The American Packrafting Association (APA) was founded in October 2012 by a group of avid packrafters from across the United States to ensure that packrafting has a place on America's public lands.  

The mission of the APA is to represent the packrafting community to promote access, safety, education and conservation. The APA is already deeply involved in access issues in Grand Canyon, Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. We want you to join our efforts to promote packrafting as a safe and exciting way to enjoy and protect America's wild rivers and wild places.  

Please become a member of the American Packrafting Association.  Visit us at to learn more about the APA and to join us!
