Here comes summer - Chehalem Paddle Launch opens Saturday, June 9th – weather permitting.
This will kick off our second season of the paddle launch. Rent a kayak or canoe and enjoy a peaceful paddle on the beautiful Willamette River. New this year – we will add three Bic paddleboards this season, in addition to our 14 Current Design recreational kayaks and four We-no-nah Royalex canoes. These are all available for rental on weekends on a first-come, first-serve basis – each at the same affordable rates.
Hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, weather permitting.
Location - 3100 SE 8th Street in Dundee
$20.00 for 2 hours
$25.00 for 4 hours
$40.00 for 8 hours
No reservations are necessary - just bring your sunscreen and follow the road until it turns to gravel at the big semitruck trailer on the riverbank. Our smiling staff will be inside. We provide lifejackets, dry bags, safety whistles and instruction. Beginners are welcome!
If you do wish to reserve kayaks and canoes for yourself, your family or your group ahead of time, you can do so by calling us at (503) 537-2909 or stopping by Chehalem Aquatic and Fitness Center.
The launch is a CPRD program developed by a group of community volunteers under the guidance of the Ford Family Foundation Leadership Institute.
