The North Umpqua River is a steep and rugged canyon, with towering Douglas Fir forests shading the crystal clear water as it leaps and cascades through deep gorges and boulder-strewn channels. Our one-day North Umpqua River All-Inflatable-Kayak trips begin running in mid-August as water levels drop and rafting gets “bumpy”. Single person inflatable kayaks replace rafts and each person becomes their own “captain”. Lead by experienced guides in inflatable kayaks, the trip begins at Eagle Creek Campground and explores 10 exciting miles to Gravel Bin Boat Ramp. Classic rapids such as Dog Wave, Toilet Bowl, Cardiac Arrest and many others provide plenty of Class III “homework”, while famous class IV Pinball becomes the “final exam” towards the end of the day. All trips meet at the Gravel Bin Boat Ramp, near the historic Steamboat Inn – a great place to extend your visit to the area. If you're visiting Roseburg, Crater Lake National Park or Diamond Lake Resort, an inflatable kayaking trip on the North Umpqua is close, convenient and guaranteed to thrill.
