Long Description:
An Upper Deschutes River Rafting trip combines whitewater rapids, startling scenery, history and wildlife to conjure a memorable overnight river rafting mini-vacation. Your whitewater river rafting journey takes you from Mecca Flat Campground outside Warm Springs, Oregon, to the Sandy Beach take-out six and a half river miles downstream of Oregon’s whitewater river rafting hub --- the town of Maupin.

On an Upper Deschutes Whitewater River Rafting trip you river raft by columnar basalt cliffs and float through canyons carved into the Mutton Mountain range. Campsites are plentiful with exceptional views, intriguing geologic formations, sturdily designed pit and composting toilets and dotted with junipers and Douglas firs.

The overnight whitewater river rafting trip includes numerous rapids with the most notable being Whitehorse, Buckskin Mary, Wapinitia, Boxcar and Oak Springs. On the Upper Deschutes river rafting trip, you are introduced to the whitewater gradually until the exciting conclusion on the final day. The Class III whitewater is ideal for river rafting enthusiasts of every age bracket.

Campfires are possible from October 1st through June 1st and, when allowed, Orion whitewater river rafting guides will do the majority of the dinner meals using the kitchen component that helped to 'win the West' --- the Dutch Oven. From June 1st on, however, a fire ban is in effect, and our guides will create extraordinary meals over the stovetop. In addition, hiking, fishing, swimming, floating the rapids and relaxing under a shade tree are all ingredients of a memorable overnight Upper Deschutes Whitewater River Rafting trip.
