Snake River Float Trips


ince 1978, Wooden Boat River Tours has been entertaining fishermen and scenic guests in handmade wooden drift boats. These boats evolved on the McKenzie River in Oregon in the 30’s and 40’s. Today, this style of boat is made in aluminum and fiberglass but these materials, although functional, lack the warmth and soul of the hand built wooden version. We like the vintage look and feel of wood and since we are craftsmen, as well as boatmen, we can build, repair and restore these beautiful boats ourselves. These boats are as beautiful as the waters they float, and are the most comfortable craft on the river.

We offer a full menu of tours, each one complete with a riverside meal appropriate for the time of day. We also offer a special price point trip each season for those visitors on a budget. Those who would like to experience this most unique river experience and bring their own picnic to enjoy at camp.

Wild Child Adventure
