Workin The Mister every night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleeping
Worrying ’bout all that has to be done Big wheel keep on turning
Salvage Sister keep on burning
And we’re rolling, rolling
Rolling on the river

How many times do you feel like there is just WAY too much to do?
Always something…laundry, groceries, cooking, cleaning, and don’t get started on ALL THE LOOSE PAPERS!
Well sometimes you just need to step back and Roll down the River……
About a 30 minute drive from the house, we went to the upper part of the Rogue River……….. Lost Creek Dam to Shady Cove in Oregon.
We made a reservation for a raft in Shady Cove.
They had a large raft for 4-8 people or one for 2-4 people. The smaller was cheaper but also better for us to manage.
After you get your raft, you are then driven to just below the Lost Creek Dam, with life jackets, ready to raft down the beautiful river.
This is a calm part of the river. The rapids are Class I-II depending on the water level (we understand).
***Be Warned – The water is COLD at first, you’ll get use to it.
It takes about 3 hours to go down, depending on if you make any stops along the way.
This is a great beginner area since the rapids are very gentle but still fun. It’s a great way to cool off on a hot summer day.
After you get back to Shady Cove, you are picked up by the rafting company and taken back to the store or you can walk to it as it’s just a block away.
If you haven’t been rafting before there are always guided trips to go down with professionals if you feel more comfortable.
A must after rafting is Phil’s Frosty right up the road. They have a full menu and very tasty Umpqua Ice Cream with local flavor like Blackberry Revel and Huckleberry Cheesecake.
So if you get the Southern Oregon area, go rolling, rolling, rolling down the river.
Not everyone may live close to a river, but what do you do to get away from it all?
