OFFICIAL NOTIFICATION CITY VISITOR CENTER CLOSURE
After consultation with City executive staff and first responders, and due to the state and federal emergency declarations related to the COVID19 pandemic, and the state of Oregon school closure notice, the City of Gold Beach has made the difficult, but prudent, decision to close the Visitor Center until March 31st (mirroring the state mandated school closure timeline). We will reassess the situation on April 1st to determine whether it is reasonable, based on best available data, to reopen the facility. The safety of our citizens, employees, and visitors is paramount to the City of Gold Beach and we want to ensure that the Visitor Center is not a conduit for infection in our community. We hope that everyone understands our need to be cautious and vigilant regarding slowing the spread of this disease.
We will be posting updates as they become available on the City’s websites: goldbeachoregon.gov and visitgoldbeach.com. For up-to-date information regarding the virus situation in Oregon please visit the Oregon Health Authority’s website:

Local eateries are still open for take-out and/or delivery! Please support our local businesses by continuing to enjoy your favorite meals in your homes.
Please tip as generously as you are able—these folks are going to be hit hard.
Here is the link to the list of our local restaurants—if you notice a business is not listed please contact us ASAP!
GLASS FLOAT SEASON SUSPENDED
We regret to announce the we are suspending 2020 Glass Float Season effective immediately. As of today our Float Faeries will no longer be hiding floats this season.
Given this unprecedented worldwide health crisis, local/state/federal requests to limit all but essential travel, and California’s shelter in place/stay home order, it would be irresponsible of us to continue to encourage folks to not stay home and take care of their health, and that of others.
Public Safety is the City’s mandate and we need to ensure our citizens and others are safe.
We would encourage travelers to head to their respective home cities and states. We wish everyone safety and health through this crisis and we look forward to your visit with us when things return to normal.
Take care everyone.

2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the historic Wild Rivers Act. This 1968 landmark legislation sought to protect the very best of our uniquely American river treasures in their natural and wild state for all to enjoy. Then and now. We are proud that our river, the Rogue, was one of those original 8 rivers to be designated in 1968. It was then, and remains today, the very definition of a Wild River: mischievous and individual; free and untamed; magnificent and majestic; undisciplined and yea, a little bit rowdy. We think our name says it all: The Rogue. That’s what Wild Rivers are meant to be: Rogue. And there’s no better way to see and experience this historic and original Wild river than a fun filled boat ride on Jerry’s Rogue Jets & Mailboats (historic in their own right!) Jerry’s is the Rogue’s original jet boat adventure and the only tour that takes you to the Wild & Scenic sections of this river called Rogue. So come celebrate 50 years of the Wildest of America’s Wild Rivers here in Gold Beach: where the Rogue meets the Pacific.
