OREGON SIGHTSEEING

Upper Rogue River

The Rogue River was designated one of the first national Wild and Scenic Rivers by Congress in 1968.

Headwaters are in Crater Lake National Park starting from the crystal clear cold Boundary Springs at the 6000 foot elevation on the west slope of Mount Mazama an ancient volcano.

Middle Rogue River

After falling out of Crater Lake National Park at over 6000 foot in elevation to just above 1000ft.in elevation in the middle section of the river near Grants Pass and Rogue River. The middle section of the Rogue River is known for being family freindly with warmer flows and mild to moderate White Water Rafting a great choice for the novice rafter or those interested in a relaxing scenic rafting or drift boat trip. You may want to chose to take a Whitewater Tour Boat ride out of Grants Pass or Rogue River with lunch or dinner stops at a Rogue River lodge.

Lower Rogue River

The Rogue River comes out of the National Wild and Scenic Canyon section at about 37 miles upstream from the Pacific Ocean and Gold Beach Oregon arriving at the mountain river town of Agness Oregon. Nestled in the Siskiyou National Forest 30 miles upstream from Gold Beach,  near the confluence of the Rogue River and its largest tributary the Wild and Scenic Illinois River.

Southern Oregon Beaches

Southern Oregon Beaches are located on the coastal plain of the Pacific Ocean. On the Southern Oregon coast we have a marine climate. The Pacific Ocean currents keep temperatures the warmest in the state during the winter, seldom below freezing with snow being rare on the Southern Oregon Coast. Winter here starts in late December and it is Spring again by mid February. Rainfall is high on the coast keeping the Coastal Rain Forest green year around. Even though we are likely to get 80 inches of rain or more per year here it seems like a lot less. Most rainstorms start as the sun sets and are finished by sunrise, however some large rain events will start at sunrise and continue to the next sunrise. It almost never rains a little bit. Rain falls at high rates for short times to be followed by glorious weather. That’s how it is on the coast. We get almost no rainfall in the summer months, June-July-Aug.-Sept.

Wild and Scenic Rivers

Rogue Country’s seven Federally Designated Wild and Scenic Rivers amount to over 633 miles of free flowing streams, nationally recognized for beauty and quality of habitat. Congress sets aside these rivers to protect their uncommon recreational values.
