Collage of Estacada's downtown, rafting, and swimming


Estacada is surrounded by a great deal of natural beauty, making it a prime spot to embrace the outdoors. It's located just a 45 minute drive from Portland along the Wild and Scenic Clackamas River and near the Mt. Hood National Forest, so this perfect day trip feels like it's a world away. Their connection with the environment and their heritage is evident in the numerous murals painted throughout the community, and even in the local businesses. From an on-farm cidery to paddling on the Clackamas River and mushroom festivals, you'll find the fun and quirky in Estacada, with lots of local flavor. Estacada is the perfect place for water excursions, hikes, a scenic drive, or even picturesque picnicking if that's what you're after. It's a beautiful, unique place waiting for you to discover it!

And as a bonus, in 2021 Visit Estacada released the Estacada Field Guide, a pocket-sized guide to the sights, tastes and activities of the area. Pick yours up at participating locations around town during your visit, and complete the final page to earn a prize.
