Things To Do

Overview

Situated along the scenic Clackamas River, McIver State Park is only 45 minutes from Portland. This beautiful park provides a variety of outstanding recreational opportunities. Within this little-known gem, you can spend a day or a week exploring the river, forest and fields. River-lovers can challenge the sometimes wild (but always picturesque) Clackamas River with rafts, canoes or kayaks. Prefer to stay dry? You can hike, or ride your horse. Still too sweaty for you? Spend a lazy afternoon playing the year-round, 27-hole disc golf course. Discs are available at the park to rent or buy. If you're planning a special gathering, reservable picnic sites with a shelter are available. If you just need to get away for a while, individual and group campsites are waiting for you. When staying at McIver during the summer, there are family-oriented interpretive programs -- from guided hikes to nature crafts. An annual civil war re-enactment occurs in September. More than 300 actors participate. McIver State Park offers something for everyone. See you there!
