Drinking water on the Rogue

I am going down the Wild Scenic Rogue at the end of this month for the first time. Is there any place to refill on drinking water on the trip?

Paradise Lodge will let you refill water. Rogue River Ranch at mule Creek says the water is currently unavailable. We went down the week before last

There is a spring on the right 100 yards or so below Rattlesnake Rock (AKA Sports Illustrated Rock). I have filled there for many years, You need to bring a short hose.
Real adventure is only one bad decision away.

I just pulled off the Rogue 2 days ago, and there is water at Paradise Lodge, but no longer at Rogue River Ranch.

any reason you couldn't use a katadyn basecamp filter? that's what we do on the main salmon. Not sure if the rogue is too warm for drinking or too silty or whatnot.

Rogue is 34 miles. 2-3 frozen gallons in cooler and a couple more in a dry box or on the floor j.i.c. No reason to pump or hunt for water on such a short trip.

I would have to agree with bucketboater. If you do find yourself in need you have a couple options. If you have a filter, iodine tablets (do people still use these?), or are one of those that drinks from a spring then there are numerous very clean streams. No need to filter water from the river as there are numerous streams. Rum Cr., Little Windy Cr., Kelsey Cr., Carrot Cr., Long Gulch and Tate Cr. are creeks that I have gotten water from. I usually treat or filter. I have drank from some of the smaller ones over the years but I don't think I would recommend it.

Paradise will let you get water. I suppose the folks at Marial might. I don't know the etiquette on that. You may also be able to find a spigot at Zane Grey's cabin area.
