Located southeast of the volcanic Mount Hood, the Lower Deschutes River is central Oregon’s playground, celebrated for its whitewater rafting, fishing, swimming, and kayaking. With its headwaters in the Cascades, the Deschutes River is also one of the largest spring-fed rivers in the United States. Melting snow in the mountains soaks into the ground before reemerging as springs, sending the Deschutes cascading north 252 miles through Oregon until it meets the Columbia River and then the Pacific Ocean.

Designated a National Wild and Scenic River in 1988, the Deschutes River is protected for its geology, history, and numerous species of plants, wildlife, and fish. The river drops over 1,000 feet to its confluence with the Columbia River and flows through an incredible red canyon carved from volcanic basalt. Vertical cliffs tower over the whitewater, with wide talus slopes and numerous caves. The Deschutes River Canyon is not only stunning, but it also provides the perfect nesting habitat for birds of prey like bald eagles, peregrine falcons, and osprey. Songbirds, herons, mule deer, and reptiles also use the river corridor. Wild steelhead and native trout also call the river home, and the Deschutes River is a renowned fly fishing destination.
