Wisconsin whitewater, Chippewa River - East Fork

Ashland county, Glidden to FR164 section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-II     21.6 miles
  The Glidden to FR164 section of Chippewa River - East Fork in Wisconsin is 21.6 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class I-II section. The put-in location is a short drive from Eau Claire, as you can see on the road map further down. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. If you've
    been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside this state you might find the rivers here a bit more forgiving, so don't forget that a large number of rivers in this state are quite easy. If you're a camper you can camp at
one of the great campgrounds nearby. The Gogebic Range scenery is wonderful. This section has enough mileage for an overnight trip, so why not pack your camping stuff too. Great exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors are sure to keep you coming back for more. Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way this is an area with plenty of spots for that. The nature scenery of Ashland County and  
the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream attract people from near and far. This is not the only paddling stretch in this river system, there are others too.

Briefly about the general area:
Going for a hike on the Great Divide Snowmobile Trail is always a great adventure, and Bay Spring is a great local attraction. So many entertaining things in the Gogebic Range, just mind-blowing. Here at Chippewa River - East Fork you'll perhaps meet some people from Glidden It's always splendid to explore Kenyon Springs. This river is a wonderful place to visit.
