Top Ten Offbeat Whitewater Rafting Trips

Wolf River, Wisconsin

Difficulty: Class I to IV

Season: April through October

Trip Length: One to four days

This river is beloved for its magical rhythm of quiet water alternating with invigorating rapids. The surrounding countryside is tranquil north woods, largely undeveloped. There is more consistent whitewater on the Wolf than the St. Croix, with difficulty levels approaching Class IV on the lower sections. We recommend the 13-mile section from Markton to Route M, which has been awarded federal Wild and Scenic status. This section is on Menominee Indian Reservation. The tribe controls access and runs a shuttle service.
