What are your 4th of July Plans? Let's Go Rafting!

Ashland Oregon is known for its fun, elaborate, funky, and good old fashioned 4th of July parade and celebration. If you have not been to the parade yet it should be on your to do list while you are in town. Locals and even tourists will claim their spot along the parade route by duct taping their blankets and chairs. Yes, the parade is that big of a deal around here! You will see everything from floats, marching bands, baton twirlers, old fashioned cars, dogs, and anything and everything you can think of. This is Ashland after all!

The 4th of July weekend is our biggest weekend of the summer. Temperatures climb and locals and tourists alike want to beat the heat. There is not a better way to cool off than going rafting on the Rogue or Klamath Rivers. Or, you can do an ice bucket challenge and that may cool you off!

“What are your 4th of July Plans? Let's Go Rafting!…”
“It was our first trip on the Upper Klamath and with Kokopelli River Guides, but I must say it blew our expectations out of the water and we had the best trip of our lives. The team at Kokopelli were professional, knew their stuff and were amazing guides; we felt like old friends by the end of the day!”
