Rafting the Rogue River Rec Section.
The single day section of the Rogue River is for the family or friends to get out and enjoy a day of floating. This 1-day section has the ideal mix of exciting class II rapids, calm pools for swimming, and even a few spots for cliff jumping. This section is typically between Hog Creek and Grave Creek.
First step - Understand which rental package type is right for you.
Basic Rentals. You pickup up the equipment at our shop and bring it back to us. You can pickup the equipment as early as 7:15am and it is due back by 6:30pm that night or 7:30am the following day. If not returning that night let us know.
Half-day Rentals: Ideal first-timer trip. Hog Creek Boat Ramp to Galice. We will drop off your gear at Hog Creek and pick up the gear at Galice so you don’t need to worry about transporting it. While you are floating we will shuttle your car (included) from Hog to Galice so when you arrive at Galice your car is waiting. This float trip includes Hellgate Canyon and Taylor Creek Canyon making it incredibly scenic with just enough exciting whitewater. If you need additional cars moved they are $25 per car. Generally a three hour trip.
3/4-day rentals: The action section. Ennis to Grave Creek is the most popular float with basically all the best whitewater on the day section. We will drop your gear at Ennis and pick it up at Grave Creek. While you are floating we will move your car (included) so when you arrive you can take off. This trip includes the main rapids on this Rogue River section: Upper and Lower Galice, Chair, Almeda, Argo and a number of other fun class II rapids. If you need additional cars moved they are $35 per car. Generally a four to five hour trip.
Full Day – Hog Creek to Grave Creek, the full section. We will drop your gear at Hog Creek, pick it up at Grave Creek and shuttle your vehicle (included) while you are floating. Experience all the rapids, canyons, swimming, rope swings, and jumping rocks. If you need additional cars moved they are $35 per car. This trip is generally six to seven hours on the river.
Step 2 - Choose your gear, select your package, and book it!
We do not move people in our vans. A vehicle shuttle is included in your full service rental. So you will come by our shop, do paperwork and get your gear before heading to your put-in. While you are floating we will move your vehicle from your put-in to your take-out. When you arrive at your take-out you give us our gear before walking to your waiting car and heading out.
Ideally, please show up with a second set of keys for your car. If you don’t have a second set of keys be prepared to hide your keys somewhere on your vehicle for the purpose of the shuttle.
If you are doing a 3/4 day or 1/2 day trip you will need to have a Josephine County Parking Pass or bring cash to pay for parking at Ennis or Galice.
