Every year I visit friends in Oregon City, and every year we do this trip. Its a nice relaxing family float in the summer; I've only done it in July and August, so I can't comment on what it's like in high water. But as a family float, this is great, and it can be run in simple 2 man rafts without challenge.
Be warned that the water does get VERY shallow at the end of McIver state park. I've had to get out and wade through these shallows simply because the boat wouldn't budge in the lowest water flow.
Good flow, easy for class II. A few big fun waves that you have to keep your boat straight in, unless you're better than us!
