Who We Are

The Original outfitters of the white salmon & Klickitat rivers

Sitting around the dinner table in 1973, my father announced that he had acquired his outfitter license and that he was going to take his passion for river running from an extreme hobby to his occupation. Now, three generations strong (with eight little 4th generation river guides up and coming) the Zoller family, along with a spectacular staff of over 30, are doing what we love! Come join us on the river and see what we are all about!

Top Quality

Top-notch river guides deserve top-notch rafting gear and that is why you’ll ride in custom designed rafts that give the very best ride on the river. Our wet-suits, PFDs, and other river clothing comes in sizes to fit all rafters out there. When you arrive at our place you’ll find it a clean, spacious and inviting environment right on the shore of the White Salmon River!


Our private launch facilities mean you won’t be waiting in line to get on the river. When you park your car, your raft will be sitting in the river less than 200 feet away ready for you to hop in and have some fun. For our Klickitat and Upper Gorge trips, rafts and vans are loaded and ready before your arrival. Our spacious (private) changing rooms make it a snap for you to get in and out of your river clothing. Let’s spend our time having whitewater fun and not fiddling around waiting for the fun to begin!


It’s a lot of fun being the original whitewater outfitters on the White Salmon and Klickitat Rivers and to have what just might be the longest-running family rafting business in the Pacific Northwest. We are three Zoller generations strong and raising up the fourth right here on the river. Fun fact: Two river guides on the White Salmon River are tied for most years of professional guiding at over 35 years each. Guess what company they work at? Answer: Zoller’s. Old guides with wisdom teaching new younger guides is a great combination, just check out our guides for yourself!
