Boaters flock to the Owyhee Wild and Scenic River from all over the nation for unmatched solitude and startling beauty. The canyon walls along the Owyhee are so immense that the New York Times proclaimed it “Oregon’s Grand Canyon” — in places like Green Dragon Canyon it’s nearly 1,000 vertical feet to the rim.

Whether you’re looking for a family vacation or extreme whitewater adventure, each section of the Owyhee offers geology, scenery, wildlife and cultural wonders that you will not find anywhere else.
