Fun park to take the family to. The kids enjoyed exploring the little trails and playing along the Clackamas River.

I wish the trails if any, were labeled to see so as to keep a path but none the less roaming clackamette park finding ducks, sticks and collectible rocks was fun!

This is a great park to bring the family or be by yourself. A short distance from the entrance is a great walking, bike trail. Bring your dog. Great views of the Clackamas River. Fly Fishing. boat docs are closed on my trip. Fishermen's store in across the street. McDonald's, Shari's is close by.

This was our first kayaking adventure and it was amazing.

Willamette Falls is the highlight here, at 1,500 feet wide and 40 feet tall. The water flow is much better in the offseason, from pictures I have seen. But there is a lot of history to enjoy along this stretch of the Willamette River, including urban legends about Hell's Angels driving over the upper bridge supports as an initiation rite; viewing of the oldest canal and locks system in the US (it is decommissioned because $30 million isn't available to get it up to code) and various paper mills that have made this area their base of operations since 1866. We saw a few Blue Herons and Geese hanging out.

We couldn't get as close to the Falls as we wanted to since there was some choppy water so be aware of that limitation. But overall, a great beginning kayak trail with a view that few are able to experience.
