ABOUT CANYON CREEK

Canyon Creek is a super hot outdoor destination that is surrounded by old-growth forest that is popular with kids and families, alike.  It has many picnicking, camping and swimming.  There is a nearby swimming area on the Little North Fork of the Santiam River with a sandy and pebble beach.  The current is slow and small rapids feed to a few smaller pools that connect to a bigger water spot and making it a great slide pool that kids use to entertain themselves and others watching.

The area is managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).
