Explore Rafting on Oregon and Washington’s Best Whitewater Rivers!



The Deschutes River is one of the most popular rivers in Oregon. There are many attractive features to this section of the river that has made it such a popular destination. From the warm sunshine, reliable summer water flows, and easy access to numerous fun and exciting rapids, it’s not surprising that many people return to the Deschutes year after year.



Rafting the White Salmon River is one of the best-kept recreation secrets of the northwest! The White Salmon River is located only 90 minutes from the Portland/Vancouver area. This river offers some of the best class III-IV rapids around and the glaciers of Mt. Adams combined with the immense aquifers in the area, keep the White Salmon bubbling all summer long! The river cuts its way through one of the most beautiful, constricted and heavily forested gorges around.



The Clackamas River is the closest whitewater river to Portland, originating from Olallie Lake and flowing northwesterly through the Cascade Mountains before flowing into the Willamette River. The river carves a very impressive gorge through basalt rock and the river dances beneath old-growth Douglas-fir. This river was added to the Federal Wild and Scenic River System in 1988. The Clackamas River received its name from the Clackamas Indian tribe that once lived on the river.
