Rafting in Illinois

If you're looking for whitewater rafting in Illinois your best bet would be a float trip on the Des Plaines River or possibly a light paddle on the Chicago River. If you're looking for larger rapids and bigger whitewater you'll have to drive a little further, but fortunately some of the best whitewater in the Midwest is located only five hours from Chicago.

The best whitewater rafting in the Chicago area and Northern Illinois is located in Northeastern Wisconsin on the Peshtigo and Menominee Rivers. These two rivers provide the most exciting whitewater rafting in the Midwest.

If you're going to drive five hours you should plan on staying a few days. Wildman Adventure Resort has plenty of lodging options including riverside campsites and cabins. While you're here you can enjoy all of our other outdoor adventures as well. Start your morning off with some intense paintball action and finish your day with some class IV rapids on the Menominee River. We've got you covered the next day as well with the option to rock climb, paintball, or try out the new Menominee river zip line canopy tour!

Wildman Adventure Resort is your one stop for adventure in the Midwest. We look forward to meeting you and helping you experience the outdoors in a whole new way.
