We finally got up the nerve to bring our 5 and 9 year olds rafting, and this trip was an excellent introduction for them. Our guide, Jill, was amazing - very sweet with the kids, pointing out all kinds of wildlife, stopping to let them pick blackberries, swim off the raft, and try to balance on the raft while she...

Thank you so much for the very nice review about your rafting trip on the Tree of Heaven section of river. I remember Jill coming back from your trip and saying how much fun she had with your kids.

We were picked up at the hotel on schedule, and had the guide had snacks ready for us when we were done. We had a great afternoon,... More

The only reason I'm giving them one star is because you can't rate lower. I called to make reservations the day before for a half day rafting trip for our group, and was told we would be picked up at our hotel at 845am. The group arrived in the lobby by 820 to wait for the pick up. After waiting... More

This was our second trip with Kokopelli and it was amazing! We had a fabulous time with Matt. He made the experience really enjoyable, especially for my water rat kids and husband who spent a lot of time actually in the Rogue rather than riding it! (On purpose) I felt safe the entire time and our family loved the thrill... More

Experienced guides make rafting a thrilling pleasure with Kokopelli. Several rivers to raft, at different skill levels. Avoid the lower Klamath unless you really know what you're doing and stick with the Rogue, where you'll get dumped at the Nuggat unless you hang on. Really fun, and perfect for a hot summer day.

Thank you Maureen for your review of Kokopelli River Guides. I'm not sure what trip you went on this summer, but it sounds like you are familiar with all of the rivers in the area. The Upper Klamath whitewater trip is the biggest and best summer whitewater rafting in Southern Oregon. The half day on the Rogue River Nugget provides... More
