Lower Clackamas River

The Lower Clackamas River is a great beginner rafting trip. Perfect for families with smaller kids or groups just wanting a scenic, mellow day on the river. We meet only 30 minutes from downtown Portland at Barton Park. Despite being so close to Portland, the river has a nice sense of isolation as it alternates between scenic sections and small, fun rapids. Lots of wildlife and side channels to explore and swim and unwind.
