Beautiful and quiet. There weren't many people around and the grandkids loved it. It felt really safe. Bathrooms were outhouses....you have to have some pain with all that beauty. Roads are well maintained.

White Water Rafting on the White Salmon River in Wash. is a must do! After reading reviews on Trip Advisor, I selected Wet Planet. So glad I did. We had a wonderful rafting trip, felt very safe(instructions before, we even got off & walked around a dangerous waterfall w/a sharp log sticking up in the middle) Professional from the time... More

Went rafting with River Drifters in Husum. I have been rafting a number of times before but this was the best location for the combination of good scenery, nice weather (in the summer warm weather and cold water), and quality rafting. It has a good number of different good rapids with many challenging 3 - 4 rapids but nothing too... More

We rafted with Wet Planet and had a GREAT time! We took the 1/2 day trip over the Memorial Day weekend (Thanks to all of our Men and Women in the Armed Forces...). Wet Planet took care of everything: All we had to do was show up and get ready for an adventure of a lifetime! I've lived in the... More

Great fun with white water on the White Salmon river. Class 3-4.. up to 6 (depending if they're running the water fall). Just need swim suits and personal items. The companies provide the wet suits. Beautiful basalt carved route. 1 hr 15 min from Portland which is not common to have such great rafting so near a great city. I've... More

Now that Condit dam has been removed the river is free flowing and is simply amazing how its changed for the better. White water rafting is excellent and the fly fishing will be amazing once the fish return.

Met up with some friends for a great rafting trip down the White Salmon. We went with Wet Planet and they were awesome. They gave us everything we needed and drove us up to the river. All you really need to bring is a bathing suit. I particularity enjoyed passing the public launch site that was bustling with other companies... More
