Gilmores mistake, burnt shanty, shotgun eddy,pissmire falls, take out on left 500 yards. Says John Secher

Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Wisconsin tend to be more forgiving than the national average, so you'd better keep in mind that many runs in this state are very easy. If you're coming from Appleton it's not a long drive at all to the starting location, if you're not familiar with the area there's a road map further
    down the page. Getting your paddling muscles activated and spending some quality time in nature have a lot of people coming here. This stretch is mid length, you can easily run it on an afternoon. The Gilmore's Mistake to
Otter Slide section of Wolf River is 5.9 miles long and is a class II(III) section of whitewater according to American Whitewater. The beautiful scenery of Wisconsin and the cool fresh water beats anything. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination.
