Carver Park

Oregon City, Oregon

On the other side of the Clackamas River from the tiny town of Carver, Oregon is an equally small park with the same name. This 12-acre park on the southern bank of the Clackamas River serves as the main boat launch for the roughly 10-mile stretch of river between Riverside County Park to the west and Barton Park to the east. During peak summer months the park is primarily used as the take-out point for people floating the river from Barton Park. The park offers a beach along the shore of the Clackamas River; however, due to its north facing orientation it's cloaked in shade all day. - Quoted from the Outdoor Project (great description): https://www.outdoorproject.com/united-states/oregon/carver-park

NOTE: Swimming in the Clackamas (or floating in a tube, like most visitors do), means getting in relatively cold water (released from Estacada Lake each day, thus from the depths of a cold reservoir), with temperatures ranging from 54 degrees Fahrenheit in June to high 60’s by late August. Currents are swift and pools deep. Be prepared (towels, warm clothes, waterproof bag for your phone, water, sunscreen).

The big pool at Carver has current but it moves very slowly. Deepest areas are under the bridge.

Only VERY comfortable swimmers should swim without a lifejacket.

COVID-19

Keep your distance from other people.

Practicing social distancing is still essential. Only go to the beach if you are able to keep 6 feet or 2 meters away from others. Follow the instructions provided by your local health authorities. If your community has asked that you remain indoors and away from others, do so. Spending a day in any crowded place is the worst thing we can do for our most vulnerable right now and will counter our efforts to curb the virus’s spread.
