Oregon whitewater, White River

Wasco county, Celestial Falls section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS V     0.25 miles
  The nature scenery of Wasco County and the cool fresh water beats anything. If you're coming from City of The Dalles 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 Celestial Falls stretch of White River is 0.25 miles long and has been rated as a class V section by American Whitewater. This is a very short stretch so you'd better be prepared to walk your
    kayak back to put-in a few times. There are so many stretches to paddle in this river system, the Celestial Falls stretch is just one of many. A bit of exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors have a lot of people
coming here. The sections for whitewater rafting and kayaking here in Oregon are often more challenging than in other states, so keep in mind that many runs in this state are not easy. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way this is an area with  
plenty of spots for that. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground.

Briefly about the general area:
Near White River you locate Tygh Valley which is a pleasant site to stop by. A journey to White River wouldn’t be complete without a visit to close by White River Falls State Park. The good folks of City of The Dalles like to hang out nearby. A delightful place like Deschutes River Recreation Area in the vicinity of White River is too wonderful to leave out. White River is pretty dried up ordinarily. The month with most of the rain is December; July is when it's the driest.
