“Great Get-a-Way - Rogue Rafting, Food, Fun, Shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

The Rogue River is fun no matter where you go from Grants Pass to Shady Cove in Southern Oregon. I just happen to think Shady Cove is dreadful! However, Grants Pass has a great restaurant right on the river, and just across the street is HellGate which has guided rafting tours that look like a lot of fun! You will get wet. Many friends have gone and enjoyed it a lot! You can also walk downtown Grants Pass and visit the Kitchen Store - it's magnificent. And go to the Bohemian for a unique time; also stop in The Twisted Cork, all the neat stores downtown, and just enjoy yourselves! It's a great weekend get-a-way there and the Rogue River makes it special.

“Fun on the Rogue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

We have often taken the guided boat trip on the Rogue River in the summer, leaving from Grants Pass, OR. Lovely scenery, often a view of wildlife, and something different to do with guests. The guides are often fun, spinning the boat around to the enjoyment of everyone. Tip: don't sit in the front 2 rows or on the outside if you don't want to get wet! Go prepared with dry clothes in the car, just in case. You can also stop along the way for a catered lunch or dinner, which adds to the trip, as you get to talk to the other people and share experiences.

“Funny”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

My experience was good, it was funny and not scary to do the rafting. But I was very cold, but it was a rainy day so I think this was something that did not complete my score on this place. But in the end it was a good experience! Suites family and friends in all ages.

Enjoyed watching the boaters out on the river. Lots of wild life around, spent the day taking photos and enjoying nature.

“Ver pretty river.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Many spots to get in and out. River comes down the Rogue River Valley from Crater Lake, so its a pretty drive if you go to the park on this road, Crater Lake Drive.
