Paradise Day Use Area


Paradise lives up to its name. Originally build by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s, it offers a rare opportunity to picnic in the middle of an old-growth grove while viewing McKenzie River's famous white water.

The day use site is adjacent to Paradise Campground and offers picnicking, river access and an amphitheater.
