The City of Rogue River,
just off Interstate 5, is nestled along the banks of the
famous Rogue River in southwestern Oregon. Perched at an
elevation just 1,000 feet above sea level, the city is
in the heart of a region where three mountain ranges
meet. These three ranges - the Cascades, the Siskiyous,
and the Coast Range - meet in the Rogue Valley to create
an enviable climate. Warm, dry summers with cool
evenings, and moderate winters provide an opportunity to
enjoy country living at its best.
The city is within two
hours drive of mountain skiing, and just two hours away
from the spectacular ocean beaches of Southern Oregon.
Lakes and streams with fine fishing are barely an hour
away. But many residents and visitors prefer to fish
closer by, in the stream from which the city took its
name. The Rogue River's native trout, salmon and
steelhead are justifiably famous among anglers.
The city of Rogue River counts
some 2,000 inhabitants. The surrounding countryside includes a service
area of another 14,000 people. Grants Pass is only 8 miles west on
Interstate 5 and Medford is 18 miles east. Come and discover the charm
of small town Oregon living at its best.
Besides the obvious ways to play on the river - fishing, boating,
sailing, skiing, and just relaxing - the area around Rogue River is
full of things to see and do:
Palmerton Arboretum features fine collection of specimen trees
and access to Evans Creek.
The city's other parks - Coyote Evans, Fleming, and Anna
Classick - have facilities for horseshoes, tennis, and boat ramps.
Valley of the Rogue State Park (three miles away on Interstate
5) offers complete camping and RV facilities on the river.
The Woodville Museum features a notable collection of pioneer
artifacts. The old town jail has been rebuilt on the lawn behind the
The National Rooster Crowing Contest has been held in Rogue
River since 1953. Come around the last Saturday in June for an
old-time small town parade and jamboree!
