easy drift is Mill Creek to Campbell. I don't know of a shuttle service, and I never get phone service out there, so i'm not sure on that for ya. Someone previously mentioned that there's a shuttle at the store in Alsea, but I can't confirm that, and have always gone with two vehicles.

When I had the most ghetto wireless provider in existance (i.e. Cricket), I had service. I get AT&T...nada.

I have a friend that has verizon and says he gets it in the town of Alsea and at the hatchery bridge hole. I don't get it from the pass to the coast basically...annoying.

Not sure there is a shuttle service. As far as cell service I have verizon and sprint and both work at mill creek and a little at the bridge but down river from mill is none. I suggest bringing a bike or hike back with a pole in hand and I am sure someone will pick you up.
Good luck water will be nice

That drift is an easy drift, but I recomend bringing 100ft of rope and a snatch block for the take out on the slide at missouri bend. Last I had seen the cable that was there was all messed up, and borderline not usable. Good Luck
