Floating the Deschutes River in Sunriver

The Sunriver area is a wonderful destination for those who are serious about their river float trips. Make an entire day of it by putting in at the Harper’s Bridge and be prepared to float for an entire 3 1/2 hours to the pull out at Benham Butte. If you want a shorter ride, or need a place to take a break for lunch, hop out at the Sunriver Marina only a 1 1/2 hour float from Harper’s Bridge. You can also rent your canoes, kayaks and rafts at the Sunriver Marina located within Sunriver Resort. See our Sunriver Map for more information.

There are also several locations to float the Deschutes River in Bend, Oregon. Farewell Bend Park has several locations along the river that you can drop into the River and end up in Mirror Pond near downtown Bend. You can also choose to have a very quick ride on the Deschutes by dropping in at McKay Park which is about 45 minutes from Mirror Pond.  If you are interested in booking a vacation rental for the summer, browse our Sunriver rental homes.
