Oregon whitewater, Rogue River - North Fork

Jackson county, Natural Bridge to Woodruff Bridge section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS IV     3 miles
  The nature scenery of Jackson County and the water flowing gracefully down Rogue River - North Fork are reasons enough to come here and paddle. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in Oregon is often more difficult than elsewhere, so if you're not from around here don't forget that the rivers in this state are less manageable. When you're paddling down a Southern Cascade Range river like this one you always get great scenery along the way too. This
    is a pretty short section so it's not like you're gonna spend hours on the river in one stretch. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels
fill up quick. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby. The put-in location is a reasonable drive from Medford, as you can see on the road map further down. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, this is an area with plenty of spots for that. Great exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors will have you coming back for more. This section of Rogue River - North Fork in Oregon is 3  
miles long and is a class IV section of whitewater according to American Whitewater. This river system is full of great paddling stretches, the Natural Bridge to Woodruff Bridge stretch is just one of them.
