John Day River

Launch permits are required for all river segments. A non-refundable launch fee applies to trips entering the Wild and Scenic River section between May 20 & July 10 of $20 per overnight trip per group, or $10 per day-use trip per group.

Trip Leaders and Alternate Trip Leaders

A trip leader may name one alternate trip leader per launch permit. Either the trip leader or the alternate trip leader must present the printed permit and a picture ID at the launch point, and be present on the entire river trip. Alternate trip leaders must be listed at the time the permit is first reserved.

Each person may be named as either a trip leader or an alternate trip leader on one overnight trip and up to three day-use trips at a time. To be named as a trip leader or an alternate on an additional permit, that person will need to either cancel one permit or complete one river trip.
