Where can I go rafting near Portland with a 6 year-old?

For rafting near Portland with a six year old I’d suggest the Deschutes River near Maupin. It’s a great introduction to rafting and flows all summer long!

    We are a family of 4, our kids are 13 and 16. One day in Portland and rafting are high priority. We will arrive Aug 3rd. What do you suggest we should do/see?

    I disagree. The Upper Clackamas is the best river to run with a youngster, just an hour from Portland, wild, scenic, fun class III+
