Rogue River Valley, Oregon - Southern Oregon is divided into three main river basins; the Umpqua River, the Rogue River, and the Klamath Basin. The Umpqua meets the Pacific at Reedsport, the Rogue mouth is near Gold Beach, and the Klamath empties at the Redwoods National Park in Northern California. All three rivers have their headwaters in the Cascade Mountains on the slopes of Crater Lake, Oregon's only national park. The Rogue River is a designated National Scenic River, and formed much of the backdrop for the Meryl Streep movie "The River Wild." Jet boat trips and white water rafting are very popular.

Crater Lake Oregon - Oregon Information


Cascade Range,
Southwestern Oregon.

The lake is in a huge volcanic caldera, whose crater is 6 mi (10 km) in diameter and 1,932 ft (589 m) deep. It is the remnant of a mountain destroyed in an eruption more than 6,000 years ago. The intensely blue lake and its surrounding region became a national park in 1902; the park covers 250 sq mi (647 sq km).

Crater Lake is Oregon's only National park. It is the nation's deepest lake and is known for its vibrant blue waters. Take a drive around the caldera on a scenic road. The drive is open in early July to October and passes Vidae Falls.

Steel Information Center at the park headquarters has displays, brochures, maps, backcountry permits, tour and safety information.

Steel Information Center and the park are open year round. Rim Village Visitor Center is open in June through September and also provides information.

Located 80 miles east of Medford

The entire area is more vertical than most other parts of the state, which leads to numerous waterfalls, lots of whitewater rapids, and some spectacular scenery. Rogue River Valley is outside the main population centers of the state and the area has a very rural flavor. Major industries are tourism, wood products and agriculture. The climate is generally milder and more Mediterranean than North Western Oregon. Average rainfallis about 20 % lower and the temperatures are a bit higher.
