Eight Great Rivers for Tubing in Wisconsin
Posted on: 5/21/2012
Lazy rivers have a whole new meaning this summer! Tubing on the river is the perfect way to stay cool, relax or adventure the great outdoors in Wisconsin’s hot and humid summers.
Enjoy the summer scenery and native wildlife as you float down the river, or get wet and wild as you navigate the rapids. Stay for the day or even a whole week at riverside campgrounds where the whole family can be entertained. Tubing not your style? No worries, many outfitters also have canoes and kayaks available for rent.
When visiting, bring sunscreen and a towel! The summer heat is nothing to sweat when floating down these eight great Wisconsin rivers.
Float through the wilderness on this river which is part of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway.
The popular Apple River, located in Northwest Wisconsin near the Minnesota border, is close to all the action. The wild rapids satisfy the daring, while families and groups find this a fun place to cool off and relax.

You'll float past towering green pines as you stay cool in the clear waters of the Wolf River. In Langlade County, this river drops 430 feet over 28 miles, making it one of the fastest-flowing rivers in the Midwest. Further downstream things slow down for a lazier trip.
