River Rafting on Oregon's Rogue River

Inflatable Kayak on the Rogue RiverThe Rogue River in Oregon is a great rafting trip for families as well as experienced rafters. This is because it has fun rapids, excellent scenery, and great camps. The lore of the area abounds with stories about native americans, miners, and historic river runners. The best part of the Rogue is the abundant wildlife including brown bear, bald eagles, osprey, and river otters.

The rapids on the Rogue River are not difficult for modern rafts, so people looking for a mellow river trip with the occasional rapid will be very happy. Those looking for some excitement can take down and inflatable kayak or "duckie" and navigate the river with their own skill.
