Popular McKenzie River Rafting Trip

Our most popular trip is the half day rafting adventure which provides our guests with about 10 miles of the best whitewater on the river. For a bigger adventure, consider our 17-mile full day rafting trip. We begin the day by meeting at the McKenzie Outdoor Center, 54771 McKenzie Highway at either 9:30 AM, or 1:30 PM  where we our guides will greet you and provide you with all of the gear you’ll need for your adventure. We transport you to the “put in”  – a 5 to 10 minute drive – and take you rafting! Once you reach the “take out” the guides will transport you back to your vehicles at McKenzie Outdoor Center, about a 5 minute drive.

For the half day trip, plan on about 3 hours on the river, or for the full day, plan on 5-6 hours with some extra time for gearing up and for our on-shore orientation. Full-day trips include a delicious riverside lunch! Look no further for your dream McKenzie River Adventure!
