Travel Alert & Update:
As of July 15, everyone in Oregon is required to wear face coverings in indoor public spaces at all times and in the outdoors when social distancing is not possible.
Many of our member businesses remain closed and much of our event season is postponed due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. We are working closely with Travel Lane County and monitoring all state, county, ODFW and land management restrictions, as well as updates from the Oregon Health Authority and Lane County Public Health.
We realize that your travel and recreation plans have been effected by this state of emergency and the majority of our 2020 event season has been cancelled. Please check the social media updates on our Facebook page, and contact businesses directly to confirm their current status before making travel plans. We ask that if you do travel, please wear a mask, limit your radius, follow social distancing guidelines and respect all current closures.
“Build your own adventure on the McKenzie River.”
From Clear Lake, under the majestic Mount Washington, to the fly-fishing and bird watching town of Walterville, the McKenzie River is filled with fun, beauty, and excitement for you, your family, and friends. Choose from one of the world class bike trails, white water rafting, fishing, hiking, or relaxing in one of the natural hot springs. No matter if you prefer solitary time hiking on one of the many incredible trails, feeling the refreshing spray of a thundering waterfall on your face with a few friends, or listening to live music and socializing at one of our fine restaurants or lodges, the McKenzie River has the adventure for you.
Join the McKenzie River Chamber of Commerce and help us bring all the businesses along the McKenzie River into one community to become the best place to live, work, and visit.
