You've probably heard it's wet here! And yes, we do get seasonal rain which along with snow melt feeds a tremendous number of lakes, rivers and creeks as the water rushes to the Pacific Ocean. The result is some pretty spectacular water sports.
Life jackets are required by law for all occupants in a boat, raft or kayak. Children under the age of 12 are required to be wearing them. Thanks to the McKenzie Fire and Rescue and the McKenzie River Guides Association's seasonal Life Jacket Lending Program, you can borrow a life jacket from eleven locations along the McKenzie River. So there is no excuse for unsafe boating!
