Since Milwaukie is on the Willamette River and close to the Clackamas River and Columbia Rivers, water activities, camping, fishing and hiking are favorite things for visitors and residents to enjoy. Milwaukie is also quite close to Portland, and visitors can partake of all of Portland's amenities, while retaining the small town ambience by staying in Milwaukie.
