The Rogue River starts its journey at Crater Lake and winds its way through 215 miles of Oregonian wilderness. The warm water, friendly rapids, and lush scenery make it the perfect kayaking playland for both beginners and experts alike. The Rogue is the perfect place to paddle your first strokes, and there’s no one better to adventure with than our expert guides at Sundance Kayak School and your new FD family!
