The Rogue River is a legendary journey through a spectacular river canyon full of wildlife. It is one of the original eight Wild and Scenic Rivers designated by Congress in 1968 with the passage of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. A Rogue River rafting trip is a classic river expedition suitable for both first-timers and families.
Located in Southern Oregon, Rogue River rafting is within driving distance from Northern California and the Pacific Northwest and can also be reached by airports in Portland, Medford, or Redding, CA. Many traveling to the area combine a Rogue River rafting trip with other Southern Oregon highlights such as Crater Lake National Park, Oregon Caves National Monument or the scenic Oregon coastline.
The rapids of the Rogue are mighty, but due to dams upstream, the flow is regulated throughout the summer allowing for reliable river flows all summer long. Many veteran boaters return to the Rogue year after year and families often make it a routine vacation spot. First-timers appreciate the calm pools following rapids and the warm water is perfect for afternoon swims and inflatable kayaking.
Highlights of a Rogue River rafting trip
As the river journeys to the Pacific Ocean, you'll encounter amazing views, heavily forested landscape, and lots of wildlife. Graceful Great Blue Herons preen midstream while eagles and osprey soar overhead. Named for Native Americans that didn't go quietly when settlers descended into the valley, the Rogue's rich history encompasses the pioneers and gold miners. Famed Western novelist Zane Grey's cabin still stands along the river and Clark Gable loved to visit the rugged Rogue River.
A Rogue River rafting trip includes so much more than rapids. You'll experience the glory of the outdoors, see the stars sparkle above your camp, eat wonderful meals prepared by the guides, swim the warm pools, see otters scamper on shore, and perhaps best of all, share a one of a kind experience with your loved ones that won't be soon forgotten.
