Whitewater Rafting Right Here in Wisconsin!
Last Updated: 12/18/2013
The snow has melted. Ski hills, snowmobile trails and snowboarding jumps are shut down until next winter. You need an adventure fix. Well, we have the answer, Wisconsin whitewater rafting! Trust us, it’s a good time.
Each spring Wisconsin’s rivers swell from melted snow and April showers, priming the waters for the truly adventurous. Excitement, water splashing in your face and adrenaline pumping through your body. What’s not to like?
In northern Wisconsin, the Peshtigo River, beginning near Crandon and running to Green Bay, features one of the longest stretches of active whitewater in the Midwest. Northeast of Crivitz, several outfitters in Athelstane rent equipment and run organized rafting trips on both the Peshtigo and Menominee rivers.
The Wolf River, starts as a trickle about 25 miles south of Wisconsin's northeastern border and flows 223 miles to Lake Winnebago. It provides exhilaration for even experienced paddlers with a reputation for being wild and unpredictable with its legendary Class II and Class III rapids. Several outfitters in Langlade, White Lake and Keshena offer equipment rental, and some organize rafting trips that range from one-hour excursions to daylong adventures.
