Oregon Whitewater

Raft | Kayak | Canoe


Oregon is a whitewater enthusiast's paradise, offering a variety of thrilling river runs for kayakers and rafters of all skill levels. One popular destination is the Rogue River, known for its stunning scenery and exciting rapids. The "Nugget Falls" section is a favorite among paddlers, featuring class III-IV rapids and breathtaking views of the surrounding wilderness. Recommended streamflow levels for the Rogue River range from 2,000-8,000 cubic feet per second for optimal conditions.

For those seeking a more challenging adventure, the North Umpqua River is a must-visit spot. The "Boulder Flats" section boasts class IV-V rapids, providing an adrenaline-packed experience for experienced paddlers. With streamflow levels between 800-1,500 cubic feet per second, this river offers a thrilling ride through steep canyons and rocky terrain. As with any whitewater excursion, safety is paramount. Be sure to always wear a life jacket, helmet, and proper gear, and consider taking a guided trip if you're unfamiliar with the river. Happy paddling!
