We started as a small business, and we’ve grown to become one of the top rafting companies in town. Our fleet of 42 commercial custom-designed rafts come equipped with all the essentials, including life jackets, paddles, helmets, and more. HDRO provides everything from 1/2 day- to multi-day trips on the Deschutes, Klamath, Rouge, Owyhee, Santiam, Klickitat, and the McKenzie rivers. Their goal is to provide your family, church, corporation, or any other group with the finest possible rafting or fishing trip. “We are large enough to accommodate several hundred people per day, but will still give the small company custom service.” According to Schoenecker, “One thing that sets us apart is that our guides are some of the highest quality and our customers say that our food program is the best because we use fresh, natural, and homemade foods.” 80 94 206 Elrod Avenue PO Box 264 Maupin, Oregon 93037 541-395-2716 info@highdesertriver.com www.highdesertriver.com OREGON TRAVEL AND RECREATION GUIDE
