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.
