Close to Portland, Oregon, great intermediate whitewater, and a long season...the Clackamas River has it all!
The Clackamas River is our home river and our most popular rafting trip. The Clackamas is one of the premier whitewater rivers in Oregon and is within easy reach of anywhere in the Portland metro area. Lush old-growth forests line the bank of this steep canyon and reflect off the crystal clear water.
Spring trips offer the biggest whitewater with large waves and powerful currents. Pools between each rapid provide a chance to regroup before powering through the middle of the next rapid. As the weather gets warmer in the summer, the rapids require more maneuvering but still provide plenty of opportunities to get wet.
