What Our Guests Are Saying:

"What a excellent adventure. We started at the Lompoc Oaks Bottom Public House with a great beer. We then headed by van up the Clackamas river to our put-in at Hole in the Wall. The float down the river was so much fun. Our guide Kaelan, had a story for every rapid. The take-out was at Moore Creek. We finished the trip back at Lompoc with a beer flight and dinner!"

Jack S

Full day trip was excellent!

"Our full day trip down the Clackamas river was an awesome experience. Everyone had a blast! Out guide, Scout, was super knowledgeable and pleasant - she fit right in with the family. We experienced not only the thrill but also the quiet and beauty of the area. Scout also shared fun games on the river and suggested many a great swim. I also highly encourage to book the photo package! They are memorable!!"
