Oregon whitewater, White River

Wasco county, Victor Road Bridge to Tygh Valley section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS II-III     11.3 miles
  Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Oregon are harder than the national norm, so if you're not from around here don't forget that a lot of the rivers here are not suitable for beginners. The scenic beauty of Wasco County and the water flowing gracefully down White River make the trip here worthwhile. This river system is full of great paddling stretches, the Victor Road Bridge to Tygh Valley stretch is just one of them. The campgrounds
    here at White River are pretty good. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, there are lots of good places for that around here. The put-in is not too far from City of The Dalles, please
print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you won’t get lost. The Victor Road Bridge to Tygh Valley stretch of White River in Wasco County is 11.3 miles long and is rated by American Whitewater as a class II-III section. This stretch is long enough for an overnight trip if you take your time, so go ahead and pack your camping stuff. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night,  
and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. Getting your paddling muscles activated and just being out on the river for a while are sure to keep you coming back for more. When you're paddling down a Central Cascade Range river like this one you always get great scenery along the way too.

Briefly about the general area:
A magnificent site to pop by near White River is Pine Hollow, and do take a hike on the Ball Point Trail. This place, the Central Cascade Range, has so much outdoors entertaining stuff. Don't leave White River without visiting White River Falls State Park, and you can have a good hiking adventure along the Pen Way Trail.
