Top 10 Airbnb Vacation Rentals Near McKenzie River, Oregon - Updated 2022


McKenzie River is one of the cleanest rivers in the United States, flowing through a lush valley with vibrant landscapes. Inhabited by Native Americans for 8,000 years, wandering tribes settled in the area on and off until the 19th century. Stretching for 90 miles (145 kilometers), this tributary flows west to the southern tip of Willamette Valley and is a drainage for the eastern Cascade Range. Its name is derived from Donald McKenzie, a trader and explorer from the Pacific Fur Company. Today, the region is a laidback riverside community that attracts visitors with its outdoor activities such as hiking, cycling, fishing, canoeing, and rafting. If you’re looking to have a nature-filled vacation in the great outdoors, check out these top Airbnb vacation rentals near McKenzie River, Oregon.
