The Rogue River was one of the first national Wild and Scenic Rivers, designated such in 1978. Wildlife is abundant here. Paddlers often see black bear, otter, deer, and a variety of birds and other creatures. Though many boaters in a wide variety of craft use the river, its action-packed corridor remains clean, enjoyable, and secluded. Challenging falls, technical Class III to IV rapids, ideal surf and play spots, and attractive scenery will draw folks of all generations to this sacred place for years to come. The real challenge is to allow future traffic without marring the beauty of the wilderness setting and the river experience.

One of the most beautiful rivers anywhere. Start at Graves Creek and run the 34 miles of the wilderness section. You need a permit so plan early or accompany a commercial rafting company in your kayak(at full price). I have done that several times. One uear in 31/2 days I saw bear, deer, osprey. and salmon.It's a great trip with fun whitewater, particularly if you are an intermediate boater.
