Grande Ronde River

Roadless wild and scenic river, buffered by pine and fir forests with layered basalt rims above; the Grande Ronde River has splashy class II whitewater and large tree covered benches to camp on.  A guided Grande Ronde rafting trip is perfect for those who want to experience some of the most scenic camping with great wildlife viewing, but not too big of whitewater.
