Our Story

Rogue Canyon Adventures is owned and operated by Travis and Lexie Staple. As a tight-knit family run business we are committed and genuinely excited to provide the best trips on Oregon’s Rogue River. Our love for the outdoors, and in particular river trips, is what inspired Trav to become an outfitter. Our goal is to share this love of river trips with you and your group by providing seamless logistics, great food, and the best guides in the business. We do our best to make each and every trip on the Rogue a unique and special experience and look forward to you joining us soon.  We both have active roles in the business: from creating our own website, growing home grown vegetables for the trip, to personally fielding your questions. When you call it is most likely Trav who will answer the phone. Trav is also on almost every trip, leading the way. In addition to running, teaching Spanish and taking care of the pack, Lexie’s experience working in upscale New York restaurants helps create awesome food and wine pairings for the trips.

Trav's Favorite Craft: The Tube

Look close…Celebrity guide Chris Carpenter and Travis are tubing the biggest rapid on the Grand Canyon of the Colorado River, Lava Falls! Since the late 1990’s Trav and some of his best river friends have been running challenging rapids throughout the western US, Mexico  and South America. Ask Trav for a good tubing story, you won’t be dissapointed!

We love our pack

Yep! We are dog people thru and thru. Lucha, a mutt in all the finest ways, is our newest additon. Pinto is a lab/boarder collie and retired from river trips. Algo, a Yorkshire Terrier is a hit on the river, weighing in at a loveable 11 lbs!

"I don't want easy, I want possible."

Lexie loves to run for fun. If you ever want to hike or run the Rogue River Trail, you won’t have to ask her twice. She may even road bike back over Bear Camp with you, a gruesome 18 mile climb back to put-in. This summer she is training for Whistler’s Ironman. Check out her blog for tips and tricks on the river from a female perspective.
