For now, enjoy this teaser video!

    Since 2001, our award winning Paddle Oregon event stands apart the premier canoe-and-kayak-camping adventure offered on a National Water Trail.  Spanning approximately 100 miles over the course of 5 days, and through the heart of Oregon’s celebrated Willamette Valley, participants enjoy impromptu performances, like bald eagles grappling for prey with osprey in mid-flight, environmental education, gourmet meals, local beer and wine selections, and nightly entertainment.
Trip Details  (coming in March)

Registration Includes

Go all-in with us for five, sun-ripened days dreaming down the magnificent Willamette alongside friends and family.

Camping Accommodations

Our exclusive riverside campsites are located within secure private land or safe, quiet parks that feature the amenities necessary for comfort. From a forested riverbend owned by local landowners, to parks with soft grassy fields, to a historic working hop farm (where you can enjoy a beverage that was quite literally grown on site), we’ve lined up an exceptional experience for you.


A proper celebration requires music! We feature local musicians both on the river, and nightly in camp. From bluegrass, swing, and gypsy jazz artists, to steel drum and taiko groups, flamenco guitarists, electric cellists, Mongolian violinists, canoeing accordion players, and even interactive rhythm circles where you create a unique, musical chorus of sound- really, anything is possible!

Spectacular Northwest Cuisine

Prepare to be pampered! Rise and shine with a steaming cup of locally roasted coffee, followed by a hot breakfast, accompanied by seasonal berries from local farms. Your sack lunch and snack selections include more northwest brands, as will your evening appetizers and dinner (served on real plates, with real cutlery and linen napkins). From surf-n-turf offerings like wild salmon, dungeness crab, and prime rib, to vegan and gluten-free meals and breads, there is something for everyone to enjoy!
