Rogue River Rafting

3 or 4 Days from From $1,250

Rogue River Rafting Adventure

The Rogue River begins in the Rogue-Umpqua Divide Wilderness and Crater Lake National Park. It flows south west through the Cascades and then briefly touches civilization near the town of Grants Pass. We begin our trip just downstream right before the river plunges into the rugged and remote Siskiyou Mountains.

A trip down the Rogue has been compared to being in a “Planet Earth” movie. There are narrow canyons of polished rock, cool grotto’s draped in ferns, heavily forested hillsides, big sandy beaches, some of the best swimming holes anywhere, cascading waterfalls, and hikes up tumbling side streams. It is common to see bald eagles, osprey, otter, and black bear.

There are over 80 rapids and the whitewater is fun and exciting yet safe. The rapids and the choice of craft make the Rogue almost unmatched in its ability to satisfy a wide range of tastes and skill levels. It is not uncommon to have trips enjoyed by three generations of family or friends. You have the choice of sitting in relaxing oar boats, participating in more exciting paddle boats, or navigating the whitewater in an inflatable kayak (this adds a big level of excitement to the rapids).

For all the grand descriptions and accolades heaped on the Rogue for many of the guides who grew up here it is simply home – a place to recharge, relax, and live simply. In the end that might say the most about this place.

We are following the changes and guidelines closely.  As such, we are doing everything we can to ensure a safe environment for guests, staff, and our society at large. We are also fortunate for the style of our trips:
– Our group sizes are small.
– Our trips are self-contained.
– Our trips are outside in large open spaces.

However, we recognize that this is an uncertain time and that everyone has different circumstances and is in different situations. To allow for greater flexibility for our guests while giving enough time for our guides and staff to plan we have modified our cancellation policy for this trip.

Modified cancellation policy for Rogue River Rafting:
If you book the Rogue River Rafting trip and then wish to cancel, you will receive a full credit on your current payments for a future trip on the Rogue River towards one of our already scheduled 2021 Rogue River Rafting trips.  You just need to let us know by 45 days before your trip so that we have the opportunity to re-sell spaces and give staff and guides time to plan.

We are also making all final payments due 45 days or less.

After 45 days we will follow our normal cancellation policy.

Also, if you can’t make a trip within the 45 day period because of travel restrictions that affect your ability to make the trip, we will give a full credit of payments towards a future Rogue River Rafting trip.

Lastly, if we are forced to cancel a trip, you can either receive a full trip credit,  reschedule on a future Rogue River Rafting trip or a receive a full refund. This is your choice.

Wild and Scenic Rogue River – 4-Day Camping Trip Itinerary

Day 1
Our trip starts near Grants Pass, Oregon at the Galice Resort, located along the banks of the Rogue River. Here we will help you pack your dry bags and get any last minute “must haves” at the resort. We then head to the river, meet the crew, and do a thorough orientation talk. After loading our gear and ourselves into the boats we push off and head into the Rogue River Canyon. For four days we will float the Rogue as it cuts through the remote and wild Siskiyou Mountain Range. The canyon is home to abundant wildlife including bear, river otter, dear, bald eagles, and osprey.

The first day includes Rainy falls, and a hike to the historic Whiskey Creek minor’s cabin. Each night we will camp along the river on sandy beaches or grassy flats. The first afternoon we will have a “camp talk” and go over everything you need to know about our comfortable wilderness camping. In the evening we will enjoy our first dinner and a night under the stars.

Day 2
After a hearty breakfast and plenty of time for a second cup of coffee we will break camp and head down river. Day 2 includes windy and Kelsey Creek Canyons, some beautiful side creeks with great swimming options, and for inflatable kayakers one of the best days of rapids. The side streams of the Rogue are almost unmatched in there frequency, beauty, and pristine state – we will take time every day to visit at least one. We also may stop at historic Battle Bar or Zane Grays Cabin. There is a wide variety of camping options for night two depending on water levels and the length of our day on the river. After another big dinner (we are well known and proud of our meals!) we will get a good night’s sleep in preparation for a big day three.

Day 3
On day three we float through Horseshoe bend and head into the narrow and spectacular Mule Creek Canyon. Mule Creek Canyon is one of the most unique canyons in the world, and for many it the highlight of the trip. For a short part of the canyon you can float in only a life jacket through its calm swirling waters – there are very few sensations like it. The infamous and feared Blossom Bar rapid follows. Blossom Bar was dynamited in the early 1900’s to allow boats passage. It is still an impressive rapid but with the proper guiding it is enjoyed by generations of friends and family. After Blossom we will float lazily through the beautiful Huggins canyon before spending our last night on the river.

Day 4
Morning comes once again with coffee, tea and the sound of birds in the canyon. Our third day includes yet another scenic inner gorge, beautiful side canyons and swimming holes, some great jumping rocks, and a bald eagle rookery. We will also have some of the best opportunities to see Black Bear. We reach the end of our river trip in the early afternoon. You then either load up in our van to make the drive back over beautiful Bear Camp road to Galice Resort or make the short half hour trip to the Oregon coast to continue your vacation.
