The river offers up endless opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors and dry climate of Southern Oregon. The green canopy of trees and the flowers are abundant around the lodge. Riverlodge is located within the Wild and Scenic area created by the U.S. government in 1960 to preserve the natural beauty of the Rogue River frontage. As a result, building along the river is no longer allowed. At Riverlodge you will have one neighbour and acres of woods for your privacy and enjoyment.
The river is about sunbathing, swimming, floating, rafting, jet boats and fishing. You can rent affordable inflatables and float for miles. We recommend starting with a guided float trip to first learn how easy, safe and fun it is. Then rent Tahiti’s or other kayaks by the day and float different sections of the Rogue. Your visit must include a Jet Boat ride. In the summer, these fun boats come by Riverlodge in the late morning and afternoon. It is a great way to see a lot of territory and wild life. We think their best deal is a meal cruise You get wildlife, the jet boat ride and a surprisingly sumptuous dinner family style at their private riverside deck. We usually reserve our ride for the last day of our trip. Make your reservations asap. This sells out.
The days are long during the summer so it’s easy to do as much or little as you want. The area is fun to explore. Float or drive to Galice resort and enjoy the beer, food and the music on their summer deck. This is a raucous, fun crowd.
Visit our Rogue Valley wine country. There are four appellations within one hour of Riverlodge. My favorite is the Applegate River Valley. It is local, friendly, and fun: a micro climate perfect for Chardonnay, Syrah and Bordeaux red varietals. Applegate proves Oregon isn’t just about Pinot Noir. Start with breakfast or lunch at Applegate store. Great food, locals, club sandwiches and milk shakes to die for. There are numerous wineries to visit. Try Woolridge Creek and finish your day at Troon. These folks are making great wines with popular names like Druids Fluid and Riverguide White. You will want to take some home. If you want quantity call us and we will pass along our discount.
The tenured and acclaimed appellation is the Illinois Valley near Cave Junction on route to the Caves National Monument. It is just 30 minutes south of Riverlodge. It is the home of Foris wines. This family has been crafting fine wines for years and exceptional values in Oregon’s favorite Pinot Noir. This year the Wall Street Journal wine column rewarded the 2006 Foris Pinot its best value designation. We think the 2007 is just as good. It is a welcoming place and excellent wine tasting experience.
A great outing is combining a trip to the Caves National monument with wine tasting. In the National Hotel at the caves you can enjoy a the historic site with its popular ice cream shop like so many others have for over 80 years. Bring a coat. It is cool in the caves year round.
