The Upper Clackamas River from Three Lynx to North Fork is a great 13 mile winter/spring run close to Portland, OR. You'll experience continuous class II/III whitewater with some class IV excitement thrown in. This is among the most popular rafting trips in northern Oregon due to it's proximity to Portland, great whitewater, camping opportunities, and classic Pacific Northwest scenery. Oregon 224 follows the river which makes it easy to scout rapids and do a shorter run. Oregon has more Wild & Scenic Rivers than any other state and with plentiful rainfall, it is an ideal state to raft and kayak all year round. The Clackamas River is one of the most popular Whitewater rafting rivers in the Portland Oregon area.
