Situated along the scenic Clackamas River, Milo McIver State Park is only 45 minutes from Portland. This beautiful park provides a variety of outstanding recreational opportunities. You can spend a day or a week exploring the river, forest and fields.

River-lovers can challenge the sometimes wild (but always picturesque) Clackamas River with rafts, canoes or kayaks. For fishing enthusiasts, Estacada Lake offers a boat ramp and an ADA fishing dock, and the Clackamas River has Steelhead and Chinook runs.

The Clackamas Fish Hatchery is located at McIver Park, and self-guided tours of the hatchery guide visitors through the life-cycle of Chinook salmon and Steelhead.

Prefer to stay dry? You can hike or ride your horse over miles of trails. Milo also sports a world-class, 27-hole disc golf course. Discs are available at the park office to rent or buy.

If you're planning a special gathering, reservable picnic sites with a shelter are available. If you just need to get away for a while, individual and group campsites are waiting for you. When staying at McIver during the summer, we have family-oriented interpretive programs like guided hikes to nature crafts.

McIver State Park offers something for everyone. See you there!

Milo McIver’s day-use areas and campground will be closed Aug. 16 - 25 to accommodate the Vortex2020 event, a two day music festival at the park. Learn more about Vortex2020 on our FAQ page.
