High Desert Outfitters

High Desert River Outfitters + Tributary Whitewater

High Desert River Outfitters was a well-trusted and family-owned rafting outfit since 1990. The dream was started by brothers Gary and Larry out of Portland, Oregon. During the summers, they would spend their weekends in Maupin, OR guiding rafts and excited clients down the Deschutes River.  Throughout the decades High Desert River Outfitters has held permits and ran trips on many rivers including the RogueOwyheeDeschutes, McKenzie, North Santiam and more. 

In early 2021 High Desert was purchased by Tributary Whitewater

While some things have changed over the years, Tributary remains a family-run small business with the same passion for the river and the mission of leading others to experience it.

As part of coming together with High Desert River Outfitters, we have moved all of our rafting trip bookings here, on our parent website, Tributary Whitewater.
