Rafting the Rogue River is an unforgettable experience. Recognized for its crystal clear waters and technical rapids, the 84-mile section of the Wild & Scenic stretch of the Rogue offers fun and adventure for beginners, families, and expert rafters. The land in this area is managed in cooperation with the US Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management.
If you love planning your own rafting adventure, permits are necessary for rafting in some areas and can be secured from the BLM. Be sure to familiarize yourself with the rules & regulations to ensure a safe and respectful trip.
Here are some commonly asked questions:
How high are the rapids?
Rapids are classed on a scale from 1 to 6. The Wild and Scenic Rogue River includes rapids ranging from Class 1, 2, 3, and two Class 4 rapids that are easily walked around if preferred.
What happens if you need to go to the bathroom?
On the Wild and Scenic Section, the lodges have bathrooms, and some campsites have outhouses. Or you can choose to rent and carry a riverside toilet system to ensure a bathroom is always available on stops.
What do we wear?
Dressing safely and comfortably (not to mention fashionable) for river trips is a challenging task. It is very important and should not be taken lightly. For much of the season, you will need two sets of clothing: one for on the river and one for camp or lodge. During the day shorts, swimsuit, water sandals, hat, and sunglasses are best. Sun protection is always a priority. There is no shade on the river. For your safety on the water, we alway recommend you wear a life jacket and helmet. Keep items not in use dry by storing them in a dry bag.
