Paddle along the cliffs of the Deschutes and see cliff swallows and turkey vultures.

What to bring:  Paddlers should be prepared for unexpected Central Oregon weather.  We suggest that paddlers dress in layers and wear shoes that can get wet. We do not anticipate that you will leave the boat but you may get wet.  The water in Lake Billy Chinook can be very cold so it is strongly suggested that you bring a towel and a change of clothing just in case.  Bring water, sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, and cameras are optional. 

Cancellation Notice:  In the event of inclement weather or other unforeseen emergency trips will be cancelled by 7 am the morning of the tour.  Notices will be posted at the campground booths, the boat launch and efforts made to contact registered participants.
