The Umpqua River carves its way from the mountains, to the valley, to the sea – offering 111 miles of versatile water play and unmatched scenery. The versatility and characteristics of the Umpqua River make it a destination for sightseers and anglers year-round.
The mighty Umpqua River is one of only four rivers in Oregon that travels from the Cascade Mountain Range to the Pacific Ocean. The South Umpqua River runs right through the heart of Roseburg, and the North Umpqua River snakes it way westward from the Cascades – converging together just west of Roseburg at River Forks Park.
During the warmer months, the river transforms into the perfect waterpark offering floating, rafting, swimming, sunbathing, picnicking, and tons of fun without the crowds.
Each section of the river has its own personality and neighboring landscape. From palettes of greens, whitewater rapids, jade pools filled with steelhead, and lush banks filled with bigleaf maples, sword ferns and old-growth Douglas firs. These elements grow naturally into a green veil that provides visitors a sense of solitude and wonder.
So grab your pink inflatable flamingo, your fishing pole or your lifejacket for some class III rapids – the Umpqua River has everything to float your boat. This unique gem will beckon you back the second you depart from its shores.
