Wild and Scenic Rogue River Rafting Section Trips – Multi-Day

The canyon’s charm lies in its thrilling whitewater stretches, alternated with 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 of the Rogue River Canyon. Otter, beaver, deer, Roosevelt elk, black bear, cougars, osprey, bald eagles, mallards, wood 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 two 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 recently written up in Sunset Magazine as the “Best Cell Phone Free Vacation”. The night on the river at one of our camps is a great way to kick off the trip. Guides set up a full river kitchen and prepare scrumptious meals while you relax and take in the beauty of this area. 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 experience. The lodge night at Paradise Lodge is a treat, featuring cute cabin rooms to stay in and the conveniences of a hot shower and a beautiful backdrop to end your Rogue River experience.

    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.

Sun protection is always a priority. There is no shade on the river.

    We do a picnic style lunch that include 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 a dessert like strawberry shortcake, chocolate cake, or cheesecake. If you have any kind of dietary specifications, please let us know so we can accommodate.

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

    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.

          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. For the multiple day trips we provide a cooler for you to store any extra drink 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 to bring anything else that you would like to have.

          What kind of food do you serve?
          We do a picnic style lunch that include 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 a dessert like strawberry shortcake, chocolate cake, or cheesecake. If you have any kind of dietary specifications, please let us know so we can accommodate.

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

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