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.

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

Looking for a high-quality kayak to rent for a day-trip? Very friendly and knowledgeable people, good prices, and really nice equipment! We rented two kayaks for a day trip on our own and we were super impressed with the quality of the kayaks. We were with three other people who had their own kayaks and they were all wanting to...

We, my husband and two sons, 16 & 18, reserved the day trip with kokopelli river guides. Best thing we did on our Oregon summer trip. Our guide Yon was a great teacher and he makes a terrific lunch. River rafting was not on my bucket list but now I will definitely do it again!

I just had the best day whitewater rafting with Kokopelli River Guides. From the start, the experience was wonderful. Our master guide, Yale, was fantastic! He was so personable, very experienced, and knowledgeable. My granddaughters (in their early teens), daughter, and I had a wonderful experience! MJ from Ashland, OR
