MILO MCIVER STATE PARK
Situated along the scenic Clackamas River, McIver State Park is only 45 minutes away from Portland. This beautiful park provides a variety of outstanding recreational opportunities.
Within this little-known gem, 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.
Prefer to stay dry? You can hike, or ride your horse. Still too sweaty for you? Spend a lazy afternoon playing the year-round, 18-hole disc golf course. Discs for putting and driving are available at the park.
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. While staying at McIver during the summer, we have family-oriented interpretive programs -- from guided hikes to nature crafts. An annual civil war re-enactment occurs every April. Over 300 actors participate.
McIver State Park offers something for everyone. See you there!
Located in Estacada, Oregon, this 951-acre park was established in the year 1963. Named after Milo K. McIver who served on the first State Parks Commission from its inception until his death in 1962 and contributed significantly to developing state parks throughout Oregon.
The land for the park was acquired between 1955 and1986 through purchase from private owners as well as a gift of Clackamas County lands that were originally purchased with federal funds under provisions of The Housing Act Of July15th,1949 (Public Law171-81st Congress).
In addition to being an outdoor recreational haven offering activities such as fishing, boating or horseback riding among others; it also hosts one of only two official disc golf courses within Portland metropolitan area which is considered world-class by enthusiasts worldwide due its challenging terrain features including steep hillsides & dense forests along riverbanks where players must navigate their discs accurately while avoiding water hazards like ponds or streams running across fairways at various points during play.
