McKenzie River: Plan Your Adventure

Real adventure. Real close. Fish, raft, hike and more on the McKenzie River

From Clear Lake under the majestic Mount Washington, to the fly-fishing and bird watching town of Walterville, the McKenzie River is filled with fun, beauty, and excitement for you, your family and friends. Choose from one of the world-class bike trails, white water rafting, fishing, hiking or relaxing in one of the natural hot springs.

No matter if you prefer solitary time hiking on one of the many incredible trails, feeling the refreshing spray of a thundering waterfall on your face with a few friends, or listening to live music and socializing at one of our fine restaurants or lodges, the McKenzie River has the adventure for you.
