South Fork Coquille River: 16-Mile Bridge to Milepost 3.2 Professional Review and Guide
"Deeply cut into sedimentary formations of the coastal mountains, the South Fork Coquille River offers some of the finest technical whitewater in Oregon. Historically, this is timber and mining country but, surprisingly, the excellent scenic quality of the corridor has been maintained.
Campsites are available at hina Flat, Daphne Grove, and Myrtle Grove. The run is divided into four sections in acknowledgment of the varied gradient and character of the river. At medium flows, the three upper sections are usually run together, but a more demanding combination is provided by sections 3 and 4. During low water, only section 3 is enjoyable. High runoff provides a fast, turbulent run from the top to Coal Creek. Character: forested; gorge; canyon."
