There’s no place like Black Butte Ranch in the summer. The fresh mountain air surrounding lush green forests and vegetation presents a tranquil setting for the perfect getaway. While we provide an array of sunny day activities, we highly recommend taking advantage of our offer to go kayaking in Oregon. 

Spend the Day Kayaking in Oregon with Your Loved Ones

Don’t worry if you’ve never paddled a kayak. Check out this kayak tutorial or ask our staff about potentially taking a class or two. You and your family will be rowing circles around Phalarope Lake in no time. In addition to our Oregon kayak rentals, you’ll also have access to SUP boards and canoes when you stay at our Ranch resort. Our pristine lake is the ideal place to embark on a paddling adventure. Explore the scenic waters, say hello to the local wildlife, and bask in the magnificence of an Oregon mountain backdrop. Please note that there’s no swimming allowed in Phalarope Lake. However, we have several state-of-the-art swimming pools on the premises, so there’s bound to be one near your Oregon vacation rental. 

Other Aquatic Activities 

Another way you can enjoy Phalarope Lake is to try your hand at fly fishing. Black Butte Ranch instills a strict catch-and-release policy and only allows the use of barbless hooks. In the summer months, we offer free fly-fishing clinics for people over the age of 12. There’s no need to worry about equipment either, as we provide rod rentals and flies for purchase. If you’re looking for a little more excitement, you’ll get some adrenaline pumping when you book a white water rafting tour.
