Rafting on the Rogue River in Oregon


Oregon's Rogue River is one of the nation's most beautiful. The Rogue River begins in Crater Lake and extends 215 miles until it empties in the Pacific Ocean. There are two major sections of the Rogue River: The Wild and the Recreational. Many river recreation outfitters offer tours through both.

The recreational area is more of a family-oriented affair, with a number of activities from sunbathing to swimming and rafting available. Half day, one day, and multi-day passes are available. The 13-mile stretch used for white-water rafting is moderate and definitely suitable for the whole family. Other activities like swimming, fishing, hiking, and sightseeing are also offered.

People interested in riding some of the finest rapids the continent has to offer are advised to visit the wild Rogue River. Here, travelers will find the best of Rogue River rafting. The rapids are mostly Class II and Class III, but some famous spots are Class IV. Blossom Bar Rapid and Mule Creek Canyon are two world-renowned Class IV rapids found on the Rogue River. Most wild Rogue River rafting excursions last multiple days, lasting between two and four days. Wild Rouge River is what rafters call a drop pool river, which means that the fast and exciting rapids are separated from each other by stretches of slow, calm water, giving rafters a chance to enjoy the scenery before being plunged back into the rapids.

Rogue River is also known for its majestic wildlife and beautiful scenery. All types of animals are native to this area, from Black Bears to Bald Eagles. Elk, cougars, and wild turkeys are other animals that coexist in this beautiful natural refuge.

Rogue River rafting is reputed to be among the best in the country. The mix of Class II and Class III rapids with the occasional Class IV keeps rafters on guard and guarantees that they will never be bored. The beautiful setting and wildlife also provide a perfect backdrop to this adventurous river.
