Oregon whitewater, Clackamas River - South Fork

Clackamas county, South Fork Clackamas Falls section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS V+     0 miles
 
I heard there were too many trees in the water. Says Someone

If you're coming from Portland-Vancouver-Beaverton it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location, if you're not familiar with the area there's a road map further down the page. The average Oregon whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be harder to run than those in other states, so you'd better keep in mind that a large number of rivers in this state are not
    easy. This is an extremely short section so you'd better be prepared to walk your kayak back to put-in a few times. Great exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors are great attractions for lots of people. There
are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this is an area with plenty of rivers for that. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. The South Fork Clackamas Falls section of Clackamas River - South Fork is 0 miles long and is rated by American Whitewater  
as a class V+ section. The natural beauty of Clackamas County and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water have people coming here. There are plenty of other sections in this river system that can be paddled as well. The beautiful Central Cascade Range scenery is an added bonus.

Briefly about the general area:
Big Cliff is a great spot to explore while in the region; the beauty of mother nature reveals herself at Hillockburn Spring. If you have a thing about the outdoors you'll have a thing about it here in the Central Cascade Range. While you're here at Clackamas River - South Fork you can take a hike along the Cold Spring Trail; Clackamas River - South Fork is near Milo McIver State Park which is a picturesque site.
