Steamboat Creek enters the North Umpqua River 1 mile west of Island Campground. Its feeling of isolation and good class 4 action make dipping a paddle into it worthwhile. The put-in is just below Steamboat Falls where the road is near the river. Steamboat Falls can be run, but it is not recommended because of cement and steel rebar at its base. A line down the center-right has been relatively clean. A mile of easy play water allows a warm-up before a class 4 rapids. After 0.2 mile, a class 5 rapids can be scouted or portaged on the right. The remaining portion of the run is class 2 and 3 with an occasional easy class 4. Little Steamboat Falls lies at the end of the canyon and ranges in difficulty from class 4 at moderate flow to class 5 at high flows. It makes an excellent take-out. Character: forested.
