I absolutely have no hesitation in recommending a trip with Ouzel. Did a 3 day Rogue River trip. One night camping and one night in Paradise lodge. This was my first river rafting trip. I was nervous about class 3-4 rapids. I am not a big fan of camping. I loved this trip! Our guides, Bobby, Anthony and Cameron were... More

Our first attempt at water rafting. It was a good experience and we will go back. The guides were fun, qualified and friendly. The river offered great sites as well.

We took our 7 year old daughter on her first rafting trip. This was the highlight of her summer and there was no shortage of adventures (zip lining, dune buggies jet boats etc). Our guides were knowledgeable about the area and very energetic. Our daughter had so much fun she wants to do a multi day one next. The provided... More

For my son's 16th birthday, we (Mom, Dad, Uncle, Aunt and teenage friend) went on our first whitewater rafting trip. The oldsters in the group were apprehensive, but the two teenagers had looked forward to it for weeks. It was a great experience for all of us. Being swept along by the splashing, laughing, wild McKenzie river was a lifetime... More

My family used Ouzel for the first time this year, having used another larger rafting outfit in Bend 3 previous times. We used Ouzel on the McKenzie river which we had also done previously. A few noteworthy touches that made this a slightly better experience. 1. More 'remote' - with only one raft from the company going down the river,... More

My kids have never been white water rafting so we chose the 1/2 day trip on the McKenzie. Plenty of rapids but not enough to require a helmet. It was over 90 degrees that day and our trip was in the afternoon. Even though we were getting splashed we did not have any trouble with getting cold because we dried... More

I have run rivers with different guiding services over the years, and Ouzel is the best of any of them. I've done two trips with them now, and all the participants on both of my trips have agreed with me that the experience is exceptional from start to finish. The initial set-up and reservation process is efficient and friendly, the... More

This is my third trip with Ouzel and they are the BEST EVER! This company is fun, friendly, organized and very professional. I always feel safe and well cared for and it is always a stellar experience. I love these people. Our guide, Will, was so fun and knowledgeable about the river and natural surroundings.
