Tumalo Creek invites you to experience paddling into the sunset, deep in the sage filled canyons of the High Desert at Lake Billy Chinook. On this journey, you have the opportunity to see incredible wildlife and geology. The lake is comprised of three different river canyons including the Deschutes, Crooked, and Metolious Rivers. These canyons, composed primarily of basalt, reach up to four hundred feet in places providing excellent habitat. In the evenings, it is likely that you will see river otters, beaver, bats, and certain species of night hawks.
