We had a great time! We "bought the boat", signed up for six paddlers on a day and run they don't normally run. In honor of my mother's 80th birthday; her wish was to go White Water Rafting. After several days of hot/dry weather, the river was quite low and our guide had to seek out some of the rapids we tackled. He did an excellent job of this. He was knowledge of the local water fowl,friendly and courteous.-- Christian E.

We had such an amazing time rafting down the Clackamas River. It was the perfect mix of relaxation with a good number of class II and III rapids for the excitement. Our guide John did a great job personalizing the trip to ensure that we all had fun. I highly recommend Oregon River Experiences.--Brandon P.

My son and I did the half-day trip. It was one of the highlights of vising the Portland area. You have to drive the 40 miles from Portland to the launch, but the drive is through some of the most beautiful country. The staff are second-to-none in kindness and cooperative leadership. I would recommend this group to anyone who enjoys the outdoors. I would especially recommend ORE if you're looking for an activity that's outside of Portland to balance the urban experience.--Michael O.
