This company was very accomodating. We made last minute reservations and they were able to meet all our needs. Our guide was knowledgeable and made us feel safe while providing maximum excitement. Our group had a wide range of abilities and the guide had us practice taught us quickly and efficiently how to follow her directions. It was a memorable... More

I had so much fun with Ouzel that I did 3 trips. Two on the Deschutes and a day trip on the McKenzie. All the guides were super knowledgable, not just about the rapids, but the area and its indigenous elements. An owl flew into camp. It was dark. But our guide, Tim (a native of the area) was able...

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
