I really enjoy living in Gold Hill because it`s a small town with friendly people. Gold Hill has the Rogue River going through it with beautiful scenery around it. Gold Hill has a strong community that is always trying to help out.

I like this small town. A great place to throw your raft in the famous Rogue River and start your fantastic journey. Is RV friendly, and is very friendly.
