Portland, Oregon Packrafters

Post by tkb » Fri Apr 20, 2018 7:47 am

I'm looking for packraft partners in the Portland, OR area for some relatively tame day trips.

I just moved up from Eugene and bought a raft. I have some experience running class 2 water in borrowed IKs but I am otherwise newish to packrafting (and to Portland). I've heard that the Clackamas river downstream of Barton can be a good start, but I'm open to other ideas.

Curious to learn who else is here, what the favorite spots are, and what resources for boaters there are in town (e.g., swiftwater rescue courses). Thanks all!

HI, I am in Bend. There are tons of great day runs in the PDX area. You might check-in with one of the several clubs up there (OKCC, PDX Kayaker, LCCC) for groups going out.
