Roaring Rapids is a terrific choice for your next family or group get-together. From our riverside patio and lawn to private interior space, we have the room you need for your birthday, business meeting, company picnic, team banquet, family reunion, class reunion, or any other group outing. Just give us a call and we’ll get the ball rolling. Our interior spaces can accommodate groups of 100 or more.

For birthdays, it couldn’t be simpler: Bring along your favorite cake (we recommend an ice chest if you favor ice cream cakes), order what you want from our menu, enjoy your party, and best of all, we’ll do the clean-up! Please call for space reservations—541-988-9819


The Riverside Landing

Enjoy our one-of-a-kind outdoor riverside covered space that is becoming the area’s favorite group gathering spot. We can accommodate groups from 50 to over 200 here in a spectacular private setting. For your summer event, be sure to book early!


Great Bear Hall

Great for private group events between 30 and 80 people, Great Bear Hall is close enough to the restaurant to smell the pizza. Relax in the cozy stone fireplace room and do business in the modern, tech-ready conference area. Going hungry isn’t an option with catering right next door for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Call for rates.


Roaring Rapids Catering

Roaring Rapids Catering is much more than delicious, brick-oven pizza. You can choose fettuccine alfredo, old-world lasagna, al dente steamed vegetables, artisan bread and our famous freshest salad bar, all prepared in our Roaring Rapids kitchen. And if you don’t have a venue for your event, consider Great Bear Hall, our own private venue next door to the restaurant. Check out the Roaring Rapids Catering menu here (it’s printable!): RRPC Catering Menu 2017


Groups and Parties

Groups and parties are our specialty. With a vintage merry-go-round and plenty of other games, it’s impossible to be bored.  With Brownie, our resident bear and prankster, you’ll never run out of things to laugh at. And our riverside lodge atmosphere makes it a great place for adults to hang out and talk while the kids play. But even though we can handle groups up to about 200 people, we recommend reservations for large parties, since space fills up quickly.
