Your 2-Day trip on the Upper Klamath will combine some of the most exciting and continuous whitewater on the west coast with an overnight camping experience in a National Wild and Scenic River Canyon. A unique and amazing aspect of your overnight trip on the Upper "K" is that you get to see a new section of river each day, and you will get to raft the most exciting middle section twice. Our Upper "K" trip starts with a fun Class II-III five-mile warm-up beginning with the Class III Osprey Rapid. You will stop and enjoy a delicious deli sandwich lunch, freshly prepared by your guides. After lunch, the river gets steeper and more challenging as we enter Hell's Corner Gorge, six miles of continuous Class IV whitewater rapids including Caldera, Branding Iron, Satan's Gate, and Hell's Corner, the rapid that this run was named after. Following Hell's Corner, there are numerous Class IV rapids including Scarface, Ambush, Snag Island Falls, and Stateline Falls, at the California-Oregon border. After Stateline, you will be driven back upstream to a remote wilderness camp above Caldera Rapid where all of your camping gear will be waiting for you. In camp you can relax, fish, and explore, while your guides prepare a feast of delicious appetizers, dinner, and dessert. The next morning, after coffee and a hearty breakfast, you get to raft the continuous, challenging, Hell's Corner Gorge one more time. Lunch will be served in California, below Stateline Falls, followed by another six miles of beautiful Class II and III whitewater and ending at Copco Lake.
