Always a fabulous experience. So much fun! You've got to push off at the Lost Creek Lake hatchery and float down to Shady Cove. It's an absolute blast, and a cheap day-long activity! Just don't forget to bring plenty to drink because It's hot out in the summer!

I love this wild river. Beautiful! Powerful! I recommend a raft trip and/or a jet boat trip! Be sure to bring a camera and sunscreen.

Can't think of a better place to live. Great for fishing and rafting. We enjoy watching the Canadian geese and all their many interesting behaviors. Fun to see the goslings in the spring. Once in a while we see the playful river otter and the busy muskrats. Valley of the Rogue State Park is a great place to stay or... More

Grew up rafting the Rogue and miss those summer waves! The water can be cold so nice on a hot Medford day! Several companies rent rafting gear, or you can bring your own. If you are not familiar with rafting a guide is highly suggested. Beware life jackets are required by law (wisely so) and if you are caught with... More

This little town right off I-5 is a fun stop for a quick river hike or nice lunch on either side of the river. You pass over the Rogue river and the town on I-5 so it is easy to find.

Love the way the river travels through the various towns. Very peaceful and beautiful to picnic by the river, especially as the season begins to change into Fall.
