Water is flowing in the Whitewater Channel! Hamilton Construction crews seal the bottom of the pool below Eddie’s wave and are prepping to build the safe passage drops. The waves should be open before summer’s end, so plan on visiting us in sunny Bend, Oregon September 19th for the kickoff party.

April Update

Lots of things happening here in the Pacific Northwest. This weekend the Northwest Creeking Competition is firing up (April 11th and 12th) at Sunset Falls in Yacolt, WA. Great opportunity to come and watch some of the PNW’s best boaters huck it off Sunset Falls (and other parts of the race of course). Also on the 18th and 19th the NW League of Whitewater Racers will have a slalom course race at Bull Run (near Dodge Park in Oregon). This race is very flow dependent and could be rescheduled. There will be another slalom race on March 2nd and 3rd at Cedar River in WA (good for people new to slalom racing). There are divisions for all ages, sexes, and boat types. Check out http://www.nwwhitewater.org/ for info on the slalom races and https://en-gb.facebook.com/nwcreekcomp for info on the NW Creeking competition.

Also a river safety warning. There has been reports of new wood located on the upper Klickitat River (staging station to Leidl). This is a local class III run that is normally only runnable in the spring. So be careful if running that section.

Celestial Falls is now the offical name

james wrote 1115 days ago:


On 11 December, 2014 the USGS Names Board approved Celestial Falls as the official name for the drop.  White River Falls was also approved for the upper drop.  This was done with the consent of the Oregon State Parks Department.  This is a good sign and we will continue to seek their cooperation.  Next we will research and publish the history of kayaking on Celestial Falls.  The posting of this history in the park will shed light on the contentious issue of banning the public’s use of a state owned waterway.  I do see legal use of the falls by kayakers in the future.  I want to run the falls openly on a warm summer mid-day with spectators cheering.  This is our waterfall and we have the inherent right to use it as part of the public trust doctrine.  Please stay safe on the falls.

Building a Whitewater Park in Bend, Oregon

natefry wrote 1153 days ago:


The Colorado Street Project in Bend, Oregon should be ready for use next spring.  There will be four features and a separate float channel.  The Bend Paddle Trail Alliance has raised over one million dollars to fund the bladder controlled waves.   The bladders will help shape the waves for various users and flows.
