Sometimes, floating on the Rogue River is like being in a National Geographic Special. Otter, deer, bear, heron, salmon and osprey are abundant. The whitewater is special too, with many Class II and III rapids suitable for oar rafts, paddle rafts or inflatable kayaks.
The unspoiled landscape of the Lower Rogue River is a remote wilderness area. The best rapids include Graves Creek Falls, Russian, Tyee, Upper and Lower Black Bar, Horseshoe, and the infamous Mule Creek Canyon and Blossom Bar.
Add incredible sidestreams with some of the best swimming holes anywhere, picturesque campsites surrounded by the diverse flora and fauna of Southern Oregon’s Cascade Range, interesting human history including Zane Grey’s cabin, and water that is perfect for swimming and you end up with one of the best family rafting vacations in North America.
Rogue river rafting trips begin and end in Grants Pass, Oregon a convenient drive from California.
