- Why Wet Planet
When other rivers in the Columbia River Gorge begin to run out of water, the Tieton River rafting trip steps up to provide more action-packed whitewater adventure.
A big wave, class III+ rollercoaster, the Tieton River charges through the scenic Yakima Valley from the Rim Rock Dam. Scheduled dam releases ensure that the Tieton River will never fail to provide the continuous, action-packed whitewater trip that our guests have come to love. This fast-paced rafting trip boasts non-stop action and minimal stopping points: the perfect combination for whitewater rafting veterans or beginners.
This whitewater river rafting trip provides the ultimate way to enjoy the beauty of the fall. Gorgeous foliage and towering ponderosa pines line the forested river banks and basalt gorges. And while the hot summer days may be fading away, the warm water released from the dam makes for an absolutely comfortable day of September Tieton river whitewater rafting in the Pacific Northwest, no matter the outside temperature.
Our Tieton River rafting trips meet at our private riverside base camp, nestled in the majestic Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest. Similar to our headquarters on the White Salmon River, Wet Planet provides everything you could possibly need or want for a day of rafting.
Our mobile base camp will provide:
These benefits create the perfect retreat for any whitewater enthusiast looking to explore more of the incredible Pacific Northwest rivers. We encourage everyone rafting on the Tieton to make a weekend adventure out of your trip by camping along the Tieton River. Thanks to the remote location, the area offers many excellent camping options. The majority of the sites are undeveloped, first-come-first-serve. Hause Creek, Willows, and Windy Point campgrounds are also all excellent Forest Service campgrounds right on the river (campground information).
If you are camping on Saturday night, you are welcome to join the Wet Planet crew free of charge at our Tieton River base camp (bring your own water). Camp with us before or after your trip!

Note: We run the Tieton River out of a base camp near the river, and not out of our headquarters on the White Salmon River. For directions on how to get to the Wet Planet Tieton River base camp and meeting point, click here for our Tieton River Rafting Information Sheet.
