Morrison’s Rogue Wilderness Adventures is your rafting, hiking, fishing, and lodging destination on the beautiful Wild and Scenic Rogue River. For over 43 years, we have been the leader in adventure travel on Oregon’s Rogue River. We outfit one day and multi-day rafting trips, lodge to lodge trips, camping trips, raft support hiking trips, fishing trips, river equipment rentals, and shuttle services.
Our award winning rafting adventures will allow you to spend time with your loved ones, disconnect from technology, and open your eyes to the beauty of nature that is in the Rogue River canyon. Wildlife is abundant along the 40-mile trip on the Rogue River. We usually see deer, black bear, river otters, ducks, turtles, bald eagles, and osprey. Enjoy your Rogue River Rafting wilderness adventure on the nation’s first National Wild and Scenic River. Our staff of seasoned river guides are experts at rowing the rapids of the Rogue River, they know the history of the canyon, and the natural scenic beauty. Novelist Zane Grey felt the draw of this beautiful area. He wrote many of his western books in a cabin which still stands along the river today. The area is steeped in history and lore from Native Americans to recent stories told around the campfire. The Rogue is famous for exhilarating rapids like Rainie Falls, Upper and Lower Black Bar Falls, and Blossom Bar. The Rogue will leave you with memories of the sun dancing off the water, beautiful rock formations, and narrow canyons edged by towering cliffs.
Our raft-supported hiking trips are an adventure like no other! See the Rogue from high above the river as you hike through old growth forests. The Rogue Canyon, which extends from Grave Creek to Foster Bar, features the historic Rogue River Hiking Trail. The trail sits just above the river making the river easily accessible in certain sections of the trail. Our raft-supported hiking trips are popular adventures and a great way to see and experience the Rogue River canyon by foot. Our hikes begin at Grave Creek and you will have the luxury of hiking with only a day pack and small amounts of water. When you need to re-fill on water and snacks, take a break, have lunch, or just enjoy the view from the raft; the guides will meet you on the side of the river to help. Hiking to side creeks, historic cabins, and hidden swimming pools are a treat and are always a favorite of our guests on our hiking trips.
