Green mossy trees and giant ferns engulf the river as you raft your way down the incredible Wild and Scenic Clackamas River canyon. You won't believe you’re only 30 miles from Portland Oregon! During the course of the season fluctuating water levels make rafting the Clackamas River very different from early spring to summer. In the spring, with high river flows, the Clackamas River is great for adventurous rafters with experience. As the river level drops throughout the summer, it becomes family friendly with kids as young as six joining in the fun. Whenever you go, the Clackamas River is perfect for Whitewater rafting, camping, hiking and beautiful scenery with an isolated feel.
