I think that it is great and exciting Says Jackie

The starting location is a short drive from Corvallis, as you can see on the road map further down. The natural beauty of Oregon and the water flowing gracefully down Nestucca
    River have people coming here. The wild scenery of the Coast Ranges is great. A bit of exercise and spending some quality time in nature will make you glad you came. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking around
here you'll find a large number of good spots. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Oregon tend to be more challenging than the national average, so better not forget that lots of rivers here are not for beginners. This stretch has has enough mileage, good for a one day paddling trip. There are a few other stretches in this river system that can be paddled as well.  
The Rocky Bend Camp to Blaine section of Nestucca River in Tillamook County is 7.9 miles long and is rated by American Whitewater as a class III-IV section. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination.

Briefly about the general area:
A journey to Manhattan Beach State Park when you're here at Nestucca River is a good idea; you'll meet a lot of people from Beaver here. Having a fine time in the Coast Ranges is simple. A visit to Nestucca River wouldn’t be complete without a visit to nearby Munson Creek State Park.
