Rogue River Rafting Trips FAQ

How high are the rapids ranked?
Rapids are classed on a scale from 1 to 6. The Wild and Scenic Rogue River includes rapids ranging from Class 1, 2, 3, and two Class 4 rapids that are easily walked around if preferred.

What happens if you need to go to the bathroom?
On the Wild and Scenic Section, the lodges have bathrooms, and many of the places we camp have outhouses, but in case an outhouse isn’t available, we carry a riverside toilet system. We make sure you have a bathroom available at all stops.

What do we wear?
Dressing safely and comfortably (not to mention fashionable) for river trips is a challenging task. It is very important and should not be taken lightly. For much of the season, you will need two sets of clothing: one for on the river and one for camp or lodge. During the day shorts, swimsuit, water sandals, hat and sunglasses are best. Sun protection is always a priority. There is no shade on the river.

What do we bring?
When you book a trip we will send out an itinerary on what you need to bring. You can also find it on our Itinerary and Gear List page.

Do you serve alcohol on the trips?
We do not provide alcohol. You are welcome to bring alcohol with you on the trips. On the multiple day trips we provide a cooler for you to store any extra drinks that you would like to bring. Beer and wine are available from the market up the street from our store.

Do you provide drinks?
We serve water and juice on our trips. You are responsible for bringing anything else that you would like to have to drink.

What kind of food do you serve?
We provide a picnic style lunch that includes healthy light meals ideal for river trips. On our multiple day trips, the lodges will provide dinner and breakfast for the lodge trips, and our guides will turn into gourmet cooks for the camp trips. They will cook anything from BBQ chicken to fajitas to stir-fry to salmon and steak. They follow it up with desserts such as strawberry shortcake, chocolate cake, or cheesecake. If you have any kind of dietary specifications, please let us know so we can accommodate your needs.

What lodges do we stay at on the river?
It depends on the trip. We stay at Black Bar, Marial and Paradise.

Where is the best place to stay the night before the trip?
Morrisons Lodge is our preferred lodging location in our area for convenient orientation and launching of your trip.
