The Upper Rogue region is the southern entrance to Oregon’s only national park, Crater Lake National Park. The region is the Northern part of Jackson County, Oregon, where the Rogue River begins its journey from the Crater Lake Park boundaries and continues 215 miles through the region on its way to the Pacific Ocean. The small towns in the Upper Rogue region were built around the northwest Timber Heritage. Today, with the Rogue River and the majestic Cascades as our playground, these rural communities offer travelers a glimpse of yesteryear in addition to a healthy lifestyle that includes “year-round” recreation and high country adventure.
