Road Trip > Rogue River

by Rainbow Bobbins

This past weekend we headed south to float the Rogue River from Hog Creek to Graves Creek. It was a gorgeous day and a beautiful float. There were flat stretches that required some rowing but mostly the rapids (up to class II for this section) were fun and swift.
    We camped at the Almeda Campground outside of Merlin, Oregon at site 28 which offered a lot of privacy (the park was only half full) and access to the river. We had warm, star-filled nights and gorgeous sunny days.  Domino Nights:    Above is the Galice Resort – a halfway point along our float that offers burgers, soft serve and a fantastic patio with views of the river. We rented the raft from Rogue Wilderness Adventures and used their shuttle service.
