We recommend having your vehicle driven to the take out point, which cost about $130.00 per vehicle again Tina will collect the money and info needed at Argo. If you have a large group you may want to inquire about van shuttle service (contact the Galice Resort in Merlin at 541.476.3818 to make arrangements). We usually arrive at Foster Bar (the take out point) at 3 p.m. At the end of the trip you will have the option of driving over the mountain to the Grants Pass area or continuing to the Oregon’s Treasure of the South Coast, Beautiful Gold Beach. Here you can enjoy fishing, hiking, or beach combing.
