Upper Klamath Whitewater Rafting Opportunity

Posted August 27, 2008 by Malina

AO Rafting is headed North this September 13-14 for a rare opportunity to raft the Upper Klamath River.  Near the California Oregon boarder, the Upper Klamath is farther afield than many of the rivers we run, but its 17 miles of whitewater make it a rafting destination worthy of the drive. 

Gunsmoke! Ambush! Ol’ Bushwacker!  Class III-IV rapids on the UK abound–and with names like that you’ll be hankering for pork n’ beans and grilled rattlesnake for dinner.  We’ll make cowboy coffee for breakfast, but we won’t let you wear your cowboy boots on the river . . .

Boots or not, (you can wear them at camp all you like, but your guide might get jealous, who’s to say) this is an unusual chance to see a river that we don’t get to run near as often as we’d like.  We’re offering two options this year:  you can do a one day trip on Saturday the 13th, or you can go all out and raft Sat-Sun for a two-day option.  The two-day trip runs the same section of river twice (don’t worry, it’s even more fun the second time around) and includes camping and dinner Saturday night.  There’s more information on Upper Klamath whitewater rafting trips, on our website.
