Illinois River Rafting

Illinois River, Oregon.

The Illinois is a a crystal clear river in Southwest Oregon.  Remote, difficult and challenging it cuts through the Siskiyou Mountain's Kalmiopis Wilderness.

Summary

The Illinois is remote, difficult and located in a rugged canyon with few good campsites.   Use is limited and except for the firerings and trash of thoughtless campers at the most heavily used campsite retains a wild and natural aura.

Followup

Additional educational signage at launch sites concerning the importance of no-trace camping would be helpful.
