Follow the Clackamas River from Oregon City all the way past Estacada to find several small lakes usually stocked with fish. Several have camping available. Super quiet up there.

10 family members ages 11-45 went river rafting on June 4. The water was still cold so we were given Farmer John style overall wetsuits, fleece sweaters and rain jackets with water shoes.
