Ashland, Oregon, is a whitewater hot-spot and the Rogue River is the shining star. With so many sections to run, there really is something for everyone. The Nugget-Powerhouse stretch of the Rogue, which is located near Gold Hill, has the best section of commercially-run whitewater on the entire river.
The section is perfect for beginners but still packs a punch for those with prior whitewater experience. The two class IV rapids, Nugget Falls and Powerhouse, are towards the end of the run, which means paddlers get lots of practice and are well-situated before running the more difficult rapids.
Indigo Creek Outfitters, based out of Ashland, is the premier outfitter on this section of river. They are the only outfitter with a River Center in downtown Ashland (located at 130 A Street), which is the meeting location for their trips. They do their photographs in-house and photos are on display when customers return from their trips.
