Welcome to Rogue River Recreational Section!
Choose your Rogue River adventure on one of the nation’s original Wild and Scenic rivers. The BLM’s recreational
section of the Wild and Scenic Rogue River features 27 miles of class I and II rapids; 11 boat access facilities; 4
campgrounds; and numerous undeveloped sites to fish, swim, picnic, camp, sunbathe, bird watch, photograph
nature, and enjoy the river the way you choose. As you travel down the river, the canyon gets progressively deeper
and rockier and you get a sense of leaving civilization behind even though a road is always within a quarter mile of
the river’s edge.
