The Rogue is a popular whitewater river in Oregon. The Rogue was one of the original rivers included in the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act of 1968. It is also designated as an Oregon State Scenic Waterway. The Rogue river provides lots of recreational experiences: car camping, hiking the Rogue River National Recreation Trail, rafting through wild rapids, or enjoying a float down calmer water. So carry your Rogue River Reticule and think exciting watery thoughts!
