Beat the winter blues and go for the high adventure of spring rafting on the Peshtigo. April and May produce large amounts of water in the Peshtigo. Run off of snow and deep frost results in periods of very large and exciting whitewater rafting. These challenging rapids are the best in the Midwest!
There are many variables that make for an exciting trip during the spring. Air temperature, water temperature, and water levels are ever changing in the spring, and therefore we adapt our trips to the specific conditions each day. Spring trips are usually run in our larger four to five person rafts, with an experienced guide steering your boat, but be ready to run the river in anything from individual boats up to 8 to 10 person rafts. Deep holes, reversals, and standing waves are common for this 5 mile stretch of non-stop action. The water is swift, so the miles go by fast.
Take one trip down the river, or enjoy back to back trips of awesome whitewater rafting action all spring by taking advantage of our Instant Replay special on Saturday mornings. Be sure to bring a synthetic or wool sweater, socks and long underwear. Wetsuits may be required and are included in the price of your trip. Additional gear is available, including insulated water shoes, gloves, and synthetic paddle jackets.
Trip Duration: 1-2 hours
Trip Includes: Approved life jacket, helmet, paddle, westsuit, jacket, gloves, neoprene water shoes, transportation, safety orientation and guide services
Things to bring: Wool or synthetic sweater, socks, and long underwear. Keep a towel and change of clothes in your car or cabin for when you return.
Note: Due to rapidly changing water levels during the spring the Peshtigo River rafting trip can occur in any one of many different sized boats. Be prepared to be in anything from a single person raft up to an 8-10 person raft. We cannot guarantee boat sizes when you make your reservation.
