Know before you go! Before you head down to the Bend Whitewater Park, check the updates here or on Facebook. These reports help you understand river flows and what activity/level each wave is set up for.

Please note that while the pneumatic bladders in the center channel of the Bend Whitewater Park allow us to manipulate the river to create waves and rapids, we do not control the flow of the river. This means a wave feature may be different than what is expected or intended without notice. We try our best to let you know when flows fluctuate and effect waves however, the Deschutes River is a natural body of water and can change.

Jason PollockBuddy and I were taking about wanting to learn how to surf, but a bit worried about being the 'new guys' getting in everyone's way. Are there any beginner times or classes?

Bend Whitewater Park updated their cover photo.

With temps in the 80s, the forecast calls for floating! Heads up in the whitewater park for more traffic in the Passageway. And all you floaters, make your float a good one with the right gear - quality tube, life jacket and river shoes. Rentals will be available; but heads up, the shuttle is not yet. Prep up with our Floating Virtual Tour and you're ready to go!
