  • "We had a great trip. It was good family time. I must say I have never had such luxurious camping before in my life. You guys did a great job and the food was fabulous. Thanks so much for everything. Love the pictures!"
  • "I still feel like I'm on the river! It was just a really fantastic experience for me.....so much so that as soon as I bought a used wet suit and went boogie boarding! I've been wanting to do that for twelve years, but feared those waves. Now I don't; I just "forward two"!!!!! Thank you, thank you, for your wonderful guidance and labor to allow us to enjoy the Rogue. Truly it was unforgettable........I'm telling friends (and sons) and who knows who might show up for the ride!? Play safe and know you have indeed changed lives for the better. -M.I."
  • "Hi Jane, Many sincere thanks to you from all of us. We had such an amazing time. I so greatly appreciate the care and integrity with which you, Simon and Taylor shepherded us down the river. We always felt safe and inspired. As a parent it was especially rewarding to see the confidence build in our kids. Were it not for such professional attention they would not have been nearly as bold as they were. Again, thank you so much. "
  • "My husband, 2 kids and myself went on the Rogue River in Oregon with Momentum. What a fantastic trip! The guides were very knowledgeable, fun and friendly. Our kids loved spending time with them. They had never been camping and truly enjoyed the experience. Our guides made our trip as smooth and safe as possible. We met great people on the trip and enjoyed making friends. Camp was always set up when we reached the beach that would be our abode for the night. It really helped us city dwellers to see our tent up every day! THANKS! They cooked delicious food every day, many times from scratch. Thanks to Orea, Mike and Zack for a great trip. We hope to make another trip with you all soon!"
  • "I would highly recommend this trip to anyone. Such a great adventure in one of the most beautiful river trips I've been on. The momentum team was super laid back, talented and professional. Shared lots of laughs and some great meals on our 3-day river lodge trip in mid-May. Could't have asked for a better time. Would highly recommend Tyler as your river guide and the Momentum team in making the trip extra special."
  • "Hey Erik, Thanks so much for a phenomenal trip. I don't think a rafting trip could be any better - great weather, amazing wilderness and fantastic people. Hope to see you again sometime in Ashland. Best, G"
  • "OMG ... What an incredible family reunion with the most amazing guides, camping hosts. Can't say enough. Trip of a lifetime. Thank you sooo much!!!"
  • "We just got back form our Rogue camping trip with Simon, Jane, and Cooper. We cannot say enough wonderful things about the journey and these three marvelous guides. We had the absolute best time and can't wait to do it again. The guides were AMAZING-truly gifts. They were positive, professional, enormously fun, and just plain old wonderful to spend time with. They really made the trip unforgettable. -L.M."
  • "Thanks Andy for a great time! I personally have not rafted so this experience was wonderful. I would do it again! I loved taking in the nature all around us. Looking forward to another LONGER trip."
  • "Rebecca, thank you so much for the great adventure we enjoyed. You truly love what you do and your enthusiasm is contagious! Thanks again for your expertise and sharing the adventure of the Rogue River. -Alex"
  • "I went on a private trip with 6 friends. We made it clear we wanted a special and unique trip, and at every stage through the adventure we were pleasantly surprised. To start, the Rogue River is a spectacular location to raft down, but Momentum offered us unexpected access to knowledge as we traveled down the river, access to insane fun as we hung around the well setup camp, and luxury as we slept. To enhance our experience, they introduced us to a survivalist, who we brought with us down the river. He did a wonderful job of giving us a much deeper understanding of the very special and complex ecosystem we were traveling down. Overall, we were very impressed and were offered way more than expected. Definitely worth every penny! Thanks again Pete, Simon, Anthony, Sam, and Trevor for the wild and truly unforgettable experience."
  • "Thanks Orea, you all were great people/friends/family. You all made it extra special, thanks again. -Mike and family"
  • "Thank YOU, Pete! It was a fabulous trip, and Orea and Jane were amazing excellent guides (and chefs and photographers). This was a first for the little kids, though they are all experienced campers, and it was a huge success. Lake Michigan and Lake Huron will never be quite the same for them, and I'm sure they'll be eager to go again. My husband and I will be, too. I'd rather have a retirement of active adventures than sitting in a rocking chair!"
  • "My sister and I had such a splendid lodge trip on the Rogue River. It was a special time for us, both in our late sixties, to experience the Wild and Scenic Rogue and be cared for so skillfully, attentively and with so much care by our three guides (Erik, the trip leader,and John and Anthony.) Our complete confidence in them allowed relaxation for us to contemplate and appreciate the beauty all around us each of the three days. I would definitely like to go on another such trip and will enthusiastically tell my friends about Momentum."
  • "I’ve traveled with Pete on 4 trips, 3 of them covering multiple days. In every case, his professionalism shines and in each case, my experiences have been nothing less than brilliant."
  • "This was our second trip with Momentum on the Rogue with the team of Eric, Arden, and Alan. If you are trying to get a group of busy people together, this is the perfect quick trip: 3 days and 2 nights on the river with comfortable cabin on night 1 and then the spectacular Paradise lodge. Excellent food and libation, but it never hurts to bring some extra booze. I suggest you stay the night before and the night after at the Galice Resort to start mellowing out! Inflatable kayaks enhance the experience and guarantee that you will eventually take a little swim! But Eric and Arden will keep you safe, so no need to be timid! Forward 2!!"
  • "Mara, Thanks to all of you. The trip was excellent and your knowledge of the river was amazing. Definitely the highlight of our summer! -Scott"
  • "Did a 3 day rogue trip with my daughter Memorial day weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. She Kayaked most of time and I did part of the time. It's great to have that alternative. I've done two guided fishing trips and one raft trip with a friend down the Rogue and this was the most enjoyable. Tyler was very accommodating. We stayed in lodges which was fantastic. perfect mixture of adventure and comfort."
  • "My father and I took the 4 day wilderness camp trip down the Rogue River. It was absolutely incredible, and I would definitely recommend taking this trip with Momentum. Our guides (Mara and Jeff) were so fun and personal, and I felt safe and well taken care of at all times. Having only 6 people on our trip was really nice. The food was awesome! I was a little concerned they would have trouble meeting my dietary needs (vegan and gluten free), but the guides made delicious food food for me and catered to the dietary needs of others on the trip, too. This was my Dad and my first trip in Oregon, and our guides made the river trip an unforgettable one. Oregon is beautiful and I can't wait to visit again! "
  • "Greatest trip of my life...The kayaking in white water was outstanding. Can't say enough about our guides (Anthony, Tyler, and Cooper). I would trust them on any future trip. They had it all together: best food including presentation, meeting our every need, and showing continual concern for our safety. This trip was a gift from my son. I would love to go on future trips. Would love to recommend this activity to anyone with questions. I am 71 yrs old and could never have succeeded in kayaking without the help of the guides and the other eight men on the trip. "
