Welcome to the Maupin Area Chamber of Commerce!
The Maupin area offers a refreshing retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city. A small town pace in an area filled with unspoiled desert beauty will set your visit in the right frame of mind. Located just 45 minutes south of The Dalles on Hwy 197, and just a short drive from the Portland or Bend areas. Recognized for superb white water excitement and world-class wild trout and steelhead fishing. Maupin is your headquarters for outdoor recreation.
The Maupin area is a vast playground for deer, elk, and bird hunters. Multiple runs of steelhead, salmon, and trout help fisherman find serenity on the Deschutes River. In the summer, Maupin is soaking wet with white water rafting. Come see what the high desert has to offer any time of the year.
The community celebrates the early season's activities beginning with RiverFest on the Deschutes. This years, newly expanded 2 day event, is Saturday and Sunday May 25th and 26th. Yep, That's Memorial Day Weekend. So, come and join us for a great weekend of Bands, Food, Arts & Crafts, Rafting, Kids play area and Facepainting. For more info go to www.maupinriverfest.com or our events page. Our sporting events for this weekend are a 5k Walk or a 5k or 10k Run on Saturday. For Sunday, we will be doing a 13.1 mile Half Marathon.
