On Reed Market Rd. they have a beautiful park to relax in and watch the river flow by. You can also see The Old Mills Shopping Center across the river.

We walked along the walking trail next to the river and it was wonderful! We sent one direction, over a bridge and returned on the other side of the river. Lovely!

We did the sun country rafting. It was amazing. Would highly recommend! They were most definitely professional.

This was a very enjoyable ride down the Deschutes River in inner tubes. The water was of course cold but that tolerated very quickly. The falls were fun but watch out!

We went this weekend expecting crowds and really no one was there or not many. It was so cool and peaceful and beautiful! Just the very best time was had.

We stayed at a hotel right on the river in the Old Mill district and enjoyed so many activities here. Dining and drinks, shopping, a surrey rental, walking the river paths, tubing and just people watching all along the river. Loved it!

While in Bend, a large group of folks decided to celebrate a friend's 50th birthday. The group decided to kayak down the Deschutes river....what a great choice! Though the river was crowded with other folks, it was the most relaxing ride. The current is strong...More

Besides floating the River on a hot day. I float the river much of the time to cool down, it's the perfect temperature.

Wide open park and river space (was there during beer fest!)...float down the river, surf on rapids and miles of walkways, with plenty of restaurants, pubs, shops and other distractions. Everyone seemed to have a great time...as did we!

No guided tours for the float down this section of the river. You just follow the other “floaters”. The river is safe, current slow and the experience absolutely wonderful!

You can rent paddle boards and the current is mild. You’d don’t have to go anywhere near the rapids
