Oregon whitewater, Crabtree Creek

Linn county, Snow Peak Camp to Larwood Park section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS III-IV     10 miles
  If you're coming from Albany-Lebanon it's not a long drive at all to the starting location, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you won’t get lost. The Snow Peak Camp to Larwood Park section of Crabtree Creek in Linn County is 10 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class III-IV section of whitewater. When you're paddling down a Central Cascade Range river like this one you always get great scenery
    along the way too. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking in this general area you'll find lots of paddling places. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in this state is often
more difficult than elsewhere, so if you're not from around here don't forget that lots of rivers here are not for beginners. You can enjoy this section more if you take your time, so pack your camping stuff. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. This river system has a few good paddling sections and the Snow Peak Camp to Larwood Park section is one of them.  
A good workout and just being out on the river for a while will have you coming back for more. The beautiful scenery of Linn County and the cool fresh water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle.

Briefly about the general area:
You're sure to stumble upon some wonderful people from Lyons here. North Santiam State Park is a pretty spot any time of year, and nearby you locate the Crabtree Lake Trail which is a glorious hiking trail. This river is so perfect. There is a good hiking trail in the vicinity of Crabtree Creek called the Snow Peak Mill City Trail.
