Clackamas River Access Sites

A wild and scenic river

Paddle and raft in the Clackamas River

The Clackamas River corridor is a mecca for outdoor recreation just outside of Portland. Along its banks you can find plenty of paddling, hiking, bicycling and camping. And from our river access sites, you can launch your watercraft for up to 13 miles of class II-IV whitewater rapids, take in the canyon’s grand views or just enjoy the mountain-fed waters of the Wild and Scenic Upper Clackamas.

The Clackamas also has adult salmon and steelhead migrating upriver almost year-round.

River access sites details

The river access sites are open year-round. The sites are free and open to the public. PGE manages three river access sites along the Clackamas River in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service:

  • Moore Creek Boat Access Site at milepost 35.3 has a restroom and a non-motorized boat launch.
  • Hole in the Wall Boat Access Site at milepost 41 has a restroom, changing rooms, and non-motorized boat launch.
  • Sandstone Boat Access Site just past milepost 45 near Indian Henry Campground is the farthest up the Clackamas and has a non-motorized boat launch.

Be sure to take a look at our Day Use Park Rules.
