Oregon whitewater, Canyon Creek

7 Mile Bridge to South Santiam River section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS V     7 miles
  The average Oregon whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit harder to master than those in other states, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that many of the rivers here are not very forgiving. The put-in is not too far from Albany-Lebanon, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you won’t get lost. The 7 Mile Bridge to South Santiam River section is one of a few paddling sections in this river
    system. There aren’t any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. Getting a good workout and just hanging
out with mother nature are sure to keep you coming back for more. The campgrounds here at Canyon Creek are pretty good. The river winds through the Central Cascade Range and you get great scenery. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way this area has a large number of paddling places. This stretch is mid length, it's perfect for a one day trip. The natural beauty of -blank- County and the beautiful way the water current  
moves down the stream make the trip here worthwhile. This section of Canyon Creek is 7 miles long and it is classified as a class V section by American Whitewater.

Briefly about the general area:
Lots of folks from Cascadia come to Canyon Creek, and a trip here wouldn’t be complete without a journey to nearby Cascadia State Park. Not enough hours in a day to enjoy the Central Cascade Range. If the weather is great here at Canyon Creek, you can go for a hike along the Three Creek Trail. Going for a hike along the Gold Hill Trail will let you absorb the natural beauty of this vicinity.
