Oregon whitewater, Millicoma River - West Fork

Coos county, Above Allegany section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS III-IV     6 miles
I would say calling this river a class III or IV would be really pushing it. It might get that big at peak flows and there is a water fall just below the fish hatchery, but you can put in at the bridge about 4 miles up the river and it is about class I from there down. Says JT

The scenic beauty of Oregon and the playfulness of the water will make you feel great. If you're coming from Coos Bay it's not a long drive at all to the put-in
    location, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you wonít get lost. This section of Millicoma River - West Fork in Coos County is 6 miles long and it is classified as a class III-IV section by
American Whitewater. This stretch has has enough mileage, it's good length for a morning trip. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in this state is often more difficult than elsewhere, so don't forget that lots of rivers here are not for beginners. Getting a good workout and spending some quality  
time in nature have a lot of people coming here. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way there are not so many other good places for that around here. The wild scenery of the Coast Ranges is great. There are some good stretches to paddle in this river system, the Above Allegany stretch is one of them.

Briefly about the general area:
You beyond doubt must go to Golden and Silver Falls State Park while you're here at Millicoma River - West Fork; a spree to Henrys Falls will fill your spirit with good feelings.
