My 10 yr old son had his first rafting experience and now is hooked. We had a great day with Nick who shared not only his technical rafting experience but also included more general nature/outdoor tour with his knowledge of the area and flora/fauna and not to mention his great sense of humor! We hope to get back next year. A big Thanks to Kokopelli and Nick!

Thank you so much for such a nice review of your recent rafting trip with Nick. I am glad that your 10 yr old son and you enjoyed the trip on the Rogue River. Nick certainly is an entertainer and I'm glad that he provided a fun trip! We look forward to rafting with both of you again. Next time...maybe we'll let your son guide the boat! :-)
Best to both of you,
Leslie Dopp, owner

This is the second year we've paddled the Rogue with Kokopelli. Both times have been a terrific experience. Brian, our guide this year, delighted us with a new water experience called raft surfing.
We got plenty wet and excited as rapids gushed over the bow of our boat! At the end, we were treated to tasty, fresh snacks prepared by local food vendors. The owners, Matt and Leslie, were wonderful hosts to our Aussie who stayed at their shop while we rafted. Kokopelli really wants to please. See you next time we're in Ashland!

Thank you Jan for such a great review about your rafting trip on the Rogue River! Brian aims to please all of his rafters every time he goes out on the water! Surfing the raft is the best way to step up the excitement a notch. It was our pleasure to spend the afternoon with your Australian Shepherd, Shadow. She is such a sweet pup! I hope that we will see you again on a rafting trip, maybe a multi-day on the Lower Klamath River? Shadow is more than welcome to come hang out at Kokopelli again!
Cheers,

This river trip was perfect. Our guide, Brian, did all the rowing. We spent all our time enjoying the ride. He as very knowledgeable about the river, the wildlife, and local history. The river experience was easy and fun. Thanks to all.

I can't recommend Kokopelli enough. The entire trip was perfectly organised and they were super responsive, tailoring the trip to our moods and needs. Jill and Nick, our INCREDIBLE guides, were fantastic and really made the entire experience. I have to add that the food was unbelievably tasty and wholesome, with a great deal of variety and care in the preparation - not at all what I would have expected on a rafting and camping trip. The route we took was incredible with regards to scenery and nature - we saw an impressive plethora of birds of prey. Thanks for an amazing and memorable trip Jill, Nick and the Kokopelli crew!

Thank you Gaya for your kind words regarding the 4 day rafting trip you took with your girlfriends on the Lower Klamath River. Our guides said the trip was fantastic! You all sound like a great group of friends and the river was the perfect place to experience with them! Your guide, Jill, since she is vegetarian did all of the food planning for your group. I am glad that you were pleased with her food choices. If you are ever in our area again, look us up. We look forward to showing you why we love our rivers so much and why we live here!

We go rafting on the Klamath every summer and love it- this was our first trip with Kokopelli as the outfit we normally go with were not available. They contacted Kokopelli for us who not only accommodated us at short notice but honored the somewhat lower price of the other company. Our guide Brian was extremely knowledgeable and experienced- we had great fun but were never concerned for safety. He was truly professional (and a life-long local). The drivers were also great- often I find I am a little nervous in a large van with a trailer going too fast around those windy roads, but this was great- the van was clean and comfortable. Lunch was sandwiches with high quality organic ingredients. I would highly recommend Kokopelli and the upper Klamath whitewater trip, and especially Brian as a guide (though the guide on the other boat seemed like alot of fun too). We saw a full family of sea otters swimming and then getting out of the water to stare at us; also a bald eagle, Osprey, great Grey Heron, etc. Fabulous trip.
