Southern Oregon’s Wild & Scenic Rogue River flows 215 miles from its headwaters near Crater Lake to the Pacific Ocean. As it makes its way through the lushly forested Siskiyou Mountains of old-growth conifers and meadows, abundant wildlife can be found. Playful river otters, merganser ducks, black-tailed deer, turtles and black bear are often within sight, and majestic osprey and bald eagles can sometimes be seen fighting for a freshly-caught salmon overhead.
The Rogue’s exciting Class III rapids and warm water lend itself to a variety of water craft including spunky inflatable kayaks, paddle rafts and oar rafts. Swimming, hiking, fishing and historical points of interest along the river abound. Camping on one of the sandy beaches along the river offers the perfect setting for relaxing with a glass of wine or a refreshing beer. Ahhh, the Rogue might just be the perfect Oregon river trip.
