This is an enjoyable trip for all ages, and you can expect some great scenery.
If you prefer more excitement with your river fun, you can always make the 20-minute scenic drive up to Bend, where the Bend Whitewater Park offers consistent rapids and wave features every day. Paddleboarders, kayakers, and river surfers can try their hand over and over at these exciting challenges, in two different lanes of the river. And of course, if you’re new to water sports, both Sunriver and Bend have tons of rental shops and classes you can take to learn!
