Peshtigo River Rafting

Peshtigo Spring Run-Off Trips Class III–IV Spring whitewater rafting trips run from early April to mid-May, when the water is chilly but very fast and exciting. Spring whitewater rafting trips include Farmer John style wetsuits and booties along with helmets, life jackets and paddles, and are run in four, six and eight place rafts. On spring trips it is very important to advise everyone in your group to bring an unlined windbreaker, wool or synthetic pullover sweater and wool socks. Also, a polypropylene long underwear top is an excellent addition to your cold weather gear.

Peshtigo Summer Trips Class III Starting mid-May and running through September, for beginners and intermediates, whitewater rafting trips are run in one, two, three and four place rafts. Water conditions change daily and the actual size of the boat will be determined on the day of the your whitewater rafting trip. The trip covers about five miles of the most exciting white water in the entire Midwest. We provide helmets, life jackets, paddles, and transportation to the put-in point on the river. We are located right on the river, so all trips end at Rapid Rafts headquarters, where rafters can change clothes and relax.
