Oregon whitewater, Sandy River

Clackamas Multnomah county, Revenue Bridge to Oxbow Park section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II     13.5 miles
The put in and take out on the revenue bridge to Dodge Park run on the Sandy river is wrong. Says Patrick

The starting location is a short drive from Portland-Vancouver-Beaverton, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. The Revenue Bridge to Oxbow Park section of Sandy River is 13.5 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class II section of whitewater. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at
    a nearby campground. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking in this general area you'll find lots of paddling places. If you'll be staying in a hotel you're in luck, lodging is available very near the river,
but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. If you hurry you can run this section in a day but why not make it an overnighter, so go ahead and pack your camp stove. The nature scenery of Clackamas / Multnomah County and the cool fresh water beats anything. The beautiful Central Cascade Range scenery is an added bonus. A bit of exercise and just hanging out with mother nature are great reasons to come. There are so  
many sections to paddle in this river system, the Revenue Bridge to Oxbow Park section is just one of many. The average Oregon whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be harder to run than those in other states, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that rivers here are not as easy as elsewhere.

Briefly about the general area:
Sandy River is a location with many visitors from Corbett. Portland Women's Forum State Park is a perfect spot, and if you're looking for a beach nearby we recommend Sundial Beach. This river has it all. Everybody loves Crown Point State Park.
