Oregon whitewater, Mill Creek

Polk Yamhill county, Buell County Park to Yamhill River section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-II     7 miles
  The natural beauty of Oregon and the cool fresh water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in this state tend to be more challenging than the national average, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that many of the sections here are not safe for beginners. The beautiful Coast Ranges scenery is an added bonus. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to
    one, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. Getting some good exercise and just hanging out with mother nature will have you
coming back for more. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this area has a large number of paddling rivers. This is one of a small number of paddling stretches in this river system, there are a few others too. This section is long enough to enjoy a good non stop paddle, it's perfect for a one day trip.
