Nugget falls
whitewater rafting

Join us for a fun and exhilarating ride on class IV whitewater

Provided on all 
whitewater trips

Less than 30 minutes away from Ashland, Medford, and Grants Pass, we launch on the Rogue River as it winds through the lush Southern Oregon landscape. Your guide will train you on basic paddling and river lingo before you splash through some small riffles on your way to the big ones: Powerhouse and Nugget Falls. These two rapids are class III and IV, and guaranteed to cool you down on a hot summer day. No experience necessary, we'll teach you everything you need to know. In the event that you go swimming (either on purpose or not), all participants will be provided with life jackets and helmets.

Getting there

Meet at ​the Gold Hill Sports Park parking lot. You'll park your vehicle there (there is a $4 fee for parking), and take an Arrowhead River Adventures vehicle to the start of our river run for the day. At the end of your excursion, we'll drop you off right back at your vehicle straight from the boat ramp. 

 

Check the weather and bring clothing that can get wet and dry quickly: board shorts/swim trunks, rash guards/athletic t's, sun hat, fleece jacket (for cool weather), and sandals or tennis shoes. We will provide a dry bag for layers and cell phone/wallet/keys. If the weather is chilly we'll also provide splash tops. Don't forget sun protection and water bottles.

This trip operates on the traditional territory of the ancestral lands of the Cow Creek Umpqua, Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, Tolowa Dee-ni’, and Takelma.
