Paddle Boarding in Maupin on the Deschutes River
The Imperial Lodge and SUPPAUL are teaming up this summer to offer river paddle boarding day trips and whitewater SUP clinics on the Deschutes river. This is an opportunity for people who are looking for something new and exciting to do on the river.
The Lower Deschutes is a marvelous destination for such an experience. Long sections of swift moving flatwater give adventurous people a thrilling experience on a paddle board on guided day trips. Challenging but manageable sections of Class III whitewater make the perfect place for learning how to navigate rapids safely and effectively during clinics.
Maupin is the gateway for Lower Deschutes paddle boarding, and the Imperial Lodge is at the heart of it all with lodging and outfitting services.
Check out some video clips of paddle boarding in Maupin.
