Help build
the Best Natural Whitewater Park in the USA!
Ti'lomihk Falls, Rogue River,
Gold Hill, Oregon

Gold Hill Whitewater Center Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit established to help build the Gold Hill Whitewater Park as well as to build a training center for competitive kayakers and rafters. Ti'lomikh Falls is also an important historic site for the descendants of Takelma Indians, who hold their annual salmon ceremony here. 


On February 25, 2014, '96 Olympic Gold Medalist Oliver Fix joined with '96 Olympic slalom course designer Rick McLaughlin at Ti'lomikh Falls to begin the design process for the whitewater features.

Get Involved

Design work and permitting for the whitewater park has begun, and the City of Gold Hill is pushing forward on a parking lot, but there is much more to do. What we really need right now are volunteers to help with planning the King of the Rogue. We also need help setting up the slalom course. Join us!
