Estacada Community

Are you visiting Estacada for the Timber Festival?  Please stay awhile and see why we call Estacada Home!   Estacada is situated along side Estacada Lake, a man made lake constructed in 1911 with the Rivermill Dam and Powerhouse.  The lake is fed by the Clackamas River a clean waterway full of fishing spots, white water, hiking, wildlife viewing and many other fun activities.  



What makes Estacada unique?

A forest-grown Christmas tree or relaxed family canoeing; wild whitewater rafting or casual mural viewing; famed geocaching or challenging disc golf; mushroom hunting, trail trekking and motorcycle touring. Six wild and scenic rivers, a million acres of untamed wilderness and nine parks nearby. Find the unexpected adventure, or discover uncommon art. All right next door.

What will you find in Estacada?

 Escape to Estacada. Go from the roar of traffic to the rhythm of the river. Grab two fat tires or one big paddle. Cycle, paddle, float, ramble or climb. Immerse yourself in trees, sky, water; summer’s greens and winter’s whites. Or wander through town to discover our history in murals, explore galleries and stop for a local craft beer. Events and festivals, celebrations, concerts and shows await. It’s an untamed, choose-your-own-adventure place with acres and acres of forest and miles and miles of river right here. A bit quirky, definitely different, and certainly unforgettable.
