HDRO 6-22-13c_0026Thank you for inquiring about our one day Mckenzie River rafting adventure! The towering Douglas fir, giant ferns and hanging mosses of the McKenzie River corridor provide a beautiful backdrop to this pristine, clear running river. We meet@ 10:00am and start at Frissell boat launch on Hwy 126, with a thorough on-shore training session by our knowledgeable, company-certified guides. Without delay, your adventure will begin.

Immediately upon entering the river we experience almost non-stop rapids. As the river rushes on, we begin admiring the McKenzie’s unrivaled scenery and a few miles down river we encounter Belknap Hot Springs where plumes of steam can be seen on river right. The hot water is piped into the pools at Belknap Lodge & Hot Springs. Many a guest have taken the plunge into these warm, relaxing pools after concluding their day with us on the much cooler waters of the McKenzie. Belknap offers an hourly rate for just this purpose.

We race past Paradise Campground where the river takes on a drop and pool character, offering a long boulder garden where the bouncy, roller-coaster effect of these boulders will thrill you as we view some of the spectacular homes along the lush green banks of the river.

The river continues its course westward twisting, turning, and plunging through the Willamette National Forest. After we pass through the riverside town of McKenzie Bridge we’ll be greeted with a tasty deli style lunch at McKenzie Bridge Campground that will replenish and give us a much needed boost for the second half of our rafting adventure down the McKenzie River. (Lunch is only provided on the full day trip.)

Our float comes to an end at Forest Glen boat landing where our van awaits you to transport you back to your vehicles at the Frissell boat ramp by 4:00 pm, allowing ample time to get home before dark.

This is an adventure for any river enthusiast and one you won’t want to miss. If you have any questions, please give us a call. We look forward to boating with you soon!

Cost per person per day:
Adult: $85.00
Junior: $75.00 (14 and under)
An awesome "Deli Style" lunch will be provided on our full day trips.
