Rogue River RaftingThe Rogue River is one of the most popular overnight rafting trips in the United States.

The Rogue River in southwestern Oregon flows about 215 miles (346 km) in a generally westward direction from the Cascade Range to the Pacific Ocean. Known for its salmon runs, whitewater rafting, and rugged scenery, it was one of the original eight rivers named in the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act of 1968. Beginning near Crater Lake, the river flows through the geologically young High Cascades and the older Western Cascades, a volcanic province. Further west, the river passes through multiple exotic terranes of the more ancient Klamath Mountains. In the Kalmiopsis Wilderness section of the Rogue basin are some of the world’s best examples of rocks that form the Earth’s mantle. Near the mouth of the river, the only dinosaur fragments ever discovered in Oregon were found in the Otter Point Formation, along the coast of Curry County.

The Wild section of the lower Rogue River runs for 33.8 miles between Grave Creek and Watson Creek. To protect the river from overuse, a maximum of 120 commercial and non-commercial users a day are allowed to run this section. Other sections of the river are open to jetboats. A Gold Beach company offers commercial jetboat trips of up to 104 miles (167 km) round-trip on the lower Rogue River. Another company offers jetboat excursions on the Hellgate section of the river below Grants Pass.
