Oregon whitewater, Jordan Creek

Tillamook county, Headwaters to Wilson River section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS III+(IV)     6.5 miles
  The scenic beauty of Oregon and the playfulness of the water beats anything. The starting location is a reasonable drive from Astoria, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in Oregon is often more difficult than elsewhere, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that rivers here are less forgiving. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. This section is
    long enough to enjoy a good non stop paddle, suitable for an afternoon trip. There are some good sections to paddle in this river system, the Headwaters to Wilson River section is one of them. You might be into whitewater
rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, around here you'll find a large number of good rivers. This stretch of Jordan Creek is 6.5 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class III+(IV) section of whitewater. The wild scenery of the Coast Ranges is great. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. A good workout and just being out on the river for a while are great  
attractions for lots of people.
