Always Fun On The Rogue

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.

Beautiful drift! Lodge hopping was the best. If you haven't done it before be aware that most of the lodges are NOT marked.

The Rogue River is well known for its trout, steelhead, and salmon fishing. I spent 12 hours on the river floating with my guide, and he put me into some serious fish!

We took our Grand-kids on the jet boats out of Grants Pass down the Rogue River. They loved it. The driver/guide is knowledgeable and kept us informed all the way. We had three boats go out that day and we played cat and mouse most of the time. Be prepared to get wet. Getting wet is the name of the... More
