ROGUE RIVER WILD AND SCENIC RAFTING TRIPS

Whitewater Rafting starts on the Rogue River with Morrison’s Rogue Wilderness Adventures. The river is divided into two general sections; the Wild and Scenic Section which is a 40 mile stretch of wilderness that runs from Grave Creek to Foster Bar and the Recreation Section which is a day-trip section of 13 miles. Below you will find information on the various trips we offer in the Wild and Scenic Section.

Wild and Scenic Rogue River Rafting Multi-Day Trips

The Rogue River canyon’s charm lies in its thrilling whitewater stretches, mild riffles, placid pools, and narrow canyons edged by towering cliffs. The old growth Douglas fir forest, mixed with deciduous trees, creates a perfect river bank habitat for the abundant wildlife in the Rogue River Canyon. Otter, beaver, deer, Roosevelt elk, black bear, cougars, osprey, bald eagles, ducks, wild turkeys, and many others flourish in the wilderness river canyon.

Oar rafts, paddle rafts, and inflatable kayaks are all available on our Wild Section Trips. The whitewater on the Wild Section is rated class III – IV in the canyon with two exciting Class IV rapids: Blossom Bar Rapid and Mule Creek Canyon. Duration of the trips are from three to four days and cover nearly 40 miles by river. Participants may choose to camp out under the stars, stay in historic wilderness lodges, or combine one or two nights of camping with one night of lodging.

4-Day Camp / Lodge Whitewater Raft Trips

4 Day Camp / Lodge Trip on the Rogue River
Our most popular trip is the combination of a wonderful camp experience and a stay at the beautiful Paradise Lodge. This trip was written up in Sunset Magazine as the “Best Cell Phone Free Vacation”. Camping on the Rogue lends itself to evenings enjoying the river flowing by, star gazing, wildlife viewing, and soaking up the solitude of this life changing adventure. Guides set up a full river kitchen and prepare scrumptious meals while you relax and take in the beauty of this area. The lodge night at Paradise Lodge is a treat, featuring cute cabin rooms to stay in, the convenience of a hot shower, and a beautiful backdrop to end your Rogue River experience.

    3-Day Wilderness Lodge Rogue Rafting Trips


    3 Day Lodge Trip on the Rogue River
    One of the great treats of rafting the Rogue River is a number of historic lodges that have remained in the canyon since the Wild & Scenic designation was determined in 1968. These lodges are privately owned and welcome hungry and tired rafters each evening. The lodges are comfortable, clean and rustic. Dinner and breakfast are prepared at the lodges and are hearty tasteful meals. All the lodges are off the grid and use generator power for evening lighting. Because of the generator, no hair dryers and no sleep apnea CPAP machines can be used.

            Group Rafting Trips
            Morrisons Rogue Wilderness Adventures loves working with groups. Be it a family reunion of 60 or a birthday party of 12 we are happy to do whatever it takes to make your trip memorable. Group trips qualify for group pricing as well as we try to give you an exclusive trip for your group. For scouting, schools, camps and church groups we do offer special pricing for those groups who are working on strict budgets and trying to stretch their dollar as far as they can go. We can also extend our insurance rider to your group so that the organization has extra insurance for their river activities. Often scouting and schools require this rider.

            Please contact our office at 1-800-336-1647 and speak to our group coordinator Lisa for an outline of pricing and other group benefits. You can email us at info@wildrogue.com.
