  If you're coming from Eau Claire 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. There are nice comfortable hotels here, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. This is one of a small number of paddling stretches in this river system, there are a few others too. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Wisconsin tend to be more forgiving than
    the national average, so don't forget that many runs in this state are very easy. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby. The wonderful Chippewa County scenery and the water flowing gracefully down Duncan
Creek attract people from near and far. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking there are not so many other good places for that around here. This section is quite short so you'd better be prepared to walk your kayak back to put-in a few times. Getting a good workout and just being out on the river for a while will have you coming back for more.
