The Rogue is Considered One of the World’s Classic Rivers
The Rogue River rises in the Cascade Mountains near Crater Lake National Park and flows through the town of Rogue River, Grants Pass and on to reach the Pacific Ocean at Gold Beach.
A section of the river below Grants Pass is designated as a national Wild and Scenic River.
Crater Lake Is Like No Place Else On Earth
Crater Lake has inspired people for hundreds of years. No place else on earth combines a deep, pure lake, so blue in color; sheer surrounding cliffs, almost two thousand feet high; a picturesque island; and a violent volcanic past. Few places on earth are so beautiful, or so interesting to scientists. Crater Lake National Park is an area of 249 square miles dedicated to the preservation of its natural resources.
Mt. Ashland Ski Area
The Mt. Ashland Ski Area is nestled in the magnificent Siskiyou Mountains, the alpine gateway to the Pacific Northwest. Mt. Ashland is conveniently located halfway between San Francisco and Portland; just 8 miles off Interstate 5. There is an annual snowfall of over 300 inches; plenty of snow for powder hounds and plenty of sun all winter long. The ski area has 23 trails in addition to chute skiing in a glacial cirque called the ‘bowl’. The mountain, the people, and the quaint City of Ashland make a winning combination.
Oregon Caves National Monument
Small in size, 480 acres, but rich in diversity. Above ground, the monument encompasses a remnant old-growth coniferous forest including a Douglas-fir tree with the widest known girth in Oregon. Three hiking trails access this forest. Below ground is a marble cave created by natural forces over hundreds of thousands of years in one of the world’s most diverse geologic realms.
Southern Oregon becoming famous for it’s wineries.
There is a variety of Golf courses in southern Oregon.
The Rogue Valley is set between the Cascade Mountains and the Siskiyou Mountains, so this allows for a drier climate and better conditions for golf.
One of the top named Robert Trent Jones courses is located right in Eagle Point, it is open year round, sand capped, and has outstanding drainage. You can play almost a 7,100 yard game. Then traveling just a few miles you will find Grants Pass Golf Club with a par 72 and 18 holes semi private facility that is located near Dutcher Creek Golf Course. It has an amazing par 70,cozy club house, all surrounded by beautiful mountainous views. These are just to name a few of the many spectacular courses we have in the Rogue Valley.
