Gold Beach

Where the Rogue meets the Pacific

Gold Beach, named for its role in the Oregon Gold Rush, is located at the mouth of the Rogue River — one of Oregon’s famous Wild & Scenic Rivers that flows from the Crater Lake area to the Pacific.

Both an exceptional beach destination and a staging ground for adventures into the Rogue River Valley, Gold Beach is a versatile and surprisingly temperate spot. As a designated “wild and scenic river”, the Rogue River has limited development, preserving its timeless appearance and surrounding wilderness. Mailboats have served homesteads along the river since the late 1800s. A jet-boat service offers tours of the beautiful Rogue River canyons and whitewater, stopping to deliver mail along the way.
