we went in inflatable rafts down this river, and my friend got screwed up. Says Ryan

The natural beauty of Oregon and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream make the trip here worthwhile. The Dorena Dam to Scaling Station Bridge stretch of Row River in Oregon is 5 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class II-III section. If you're coming from Eugene-Springfield it's not a long drive
    at all to the put-in location, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you wonít get lost. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in this state tend to be more challenging than the national average,
so don't forget that many runs in this state are not easy. There are some good hotels near the river, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. This river system has a few good paddling stretches and the Dorena Dam to Scaling Station Bridge section is one of them. Getting your paddling muscles activated and just hanging out with mother nature have a lot of people coming here. Some people prefer whitewater rafting  
and some kayaking, either way this area has a large number of paddling spots. On this section you do get some distance, it's perfect for a one day trip. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground.

Briefly about the general area:
During your tour to Row River you'll meet some people from Cottage Grove for sure; Jasper State Park is worth taking a look at.

At Row River all through the summertime highs are in the 80's, and during the night it cools down to the 40's.
