Whitewater Rafting Trips

The average Oregon whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be harder to run than those in other states, so better not forget that rivers here are less forgiving. The natural beauty of Lane County and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream have people coming here. The starting location is a short drive from
    Bend. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. Great exercise and spending some quality time in nature will make you glad you came. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive
a short distance then no problem but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking there are lots of good places for that around here. 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:
Going for a hike on the Benson Trail is always a magnificent adventure,
 
and a journey to Mc Kenzie River Adventures wouldn't be complete without taking a look at Proxy Falls. But wait, there's more fun stuff to do in the Central Cascade Range. There is a great hiking trail next to Mc Kenzie River Adventures called the Louise Creek Trail; the beauty of mother nature reveals herself at Alder Springs. This is a great river. You can never get enough of the glorious skiing at Hoodoo. Through the days of summer highs here at Mc Kenzie River Adventures get into the 80's. All through the dark hours of summer temperatures fall down into the 40's. The cold days of the wintertime come with highs in the 30's with temperatures at Mc Kenzie River Adventures dipping down into the 20's throughout winter nights.
