Experience the Best of Both Worlds - Rogue Lodge Trips
Throughout the spring and early summer, ECHO River Trips is offering a whitewater adventure with all the comforts of home. These three-day lodge trips on Oregon’s Rogue River combine running the wild and scenic River by day and relaxing in a rustic riverside lodge at night. The private lodges are comfortable, providing all the amenities of home, and are set back from the River so they can’t be seen. Most of the rooms are in cabins away from the main lodge. The lodge trips begin May 19 and 29, June 6, 13, 20, and 27, 2007.
The Rogue River offers the perfect combination of exciting but safe rapids, warm water, a lovely green canyon, a comfortable pace, and plenty of wildlife. It is a wonderful river for families and beginners, yet it still offers enough whitewater excitement for young adults, and river veterans. Over three days, guests will travel the same 38 mile stretch of River that is usually done in four days on the camping-only trip.
The first night’s stay is at the Black Bar Lodge. The staff at the lodge will transport guests’ luggage and equipment to their rooms. There is ample time to hike around the premises or relax on the lawn. Dinner will be served as a group in the lodge. This is a day to tell stories about the upcoming rapids and bond with other travelers.
The second night will be spent at a scenic lodge downriver from the famous Blossom Bar Rapid. Again, the staff at the lodge will transport guests’ bags to their rooms and guests will have the opportunity to explore the grounds and participate in many of the activities that the lodge has to offer. These activities include a five-hole “wild and scenic” gold course, hiking trails, and a wide variety of games. A hearty dinner will be served inside the lodge amongst newfound friends.
On the last day of the trip, guests will wake up to breakfast and coffee before loading into the rafts and floating down to our take-out at Foster Bar.
