McKenzie River Wooden Boat Festival This will be Eagle Rocks Lodge's 9th year of hosting the McKenzie River Wooden Boat Festival. This has been a labor of love for Debbie and Randy. The McKenzie River Drift boat was created for the McKenzie River and we have dedicated each April to honoring the builders and craftsman that have made this boat what it is today.  

This year's festival will be held Saturday, April 26th, from 9:00 to 5:00 on the beautiful grounds of Eagle Rock Lodge.  Boat owners and builders may bring their boats to display at no charge.

Call Debbie 541-822-3630 to let her know that you will be participating.  Complete your perfect weekend and book a room at Eagle Rock Lodge.  As a member of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild you can be assured of a quality stay in this inspected and approved property.  A Geotourism Experience in the Cascade Mountains and on the historic McKenzie River, Eagle Rock Lodge provides comfort and luxury to complement your adventure on the river or in the mountains.

Admission is free.  Lunch for a small fee (donate more if you can!) will be offered by the McKenzie River Guides Assoc.  All proceeds go to various projects that they do throughout the year.  Free life jackets, guided fishing trips for children whom have survived cancer and river clean up are just a few. There will be small parade of wooden boats that arrive at the Lodge just around noon.  The festival is educational and filled with history of the McKenzie River Wooden Boat Festival McKenzie.  This is a delightful time of community, history and enjoying the beauty of the McKenzie River.

The innkeepers of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild are ready to share with you their version of Oregon Culinary Tourism and Geotourism.  Get to know our State like a local; stay with one of our nearly 100 hosts in any one of or many regions.
