Wisconsin whitewater, Little Wolf River

Waupaca county, Mud Lake Road section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II(IV)     7.39 miles
This run is great when the it reaches flood stages. Many long runs with good rapids. Says Rapids Randy

When I lived in the area, we would paddle down to the Hwy J bridge.  Put in at the bridge above it, and we had a name for it, but can't remember what it was.  You need spring high water conditions to make it because the water can get real shallow thru Riemers Rips. Will see a lot of wildlife, especially with an early morning trip.

I live in Scandinavia Wisconsin with the river in my backyard! It's not there anymore! It's disappearing as we speak! If anyone else is having a problem about this contact me! At applecrisp48120@hotmail.com

The wonderful Wisconsin scenery and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. This section of Little Wolf River in Waupaca County is 7.39 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class II(IV) section. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. Whether
you're whitewater rafting or kayaking in this general area you'll find lots of paddling places. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. There are some good stretches to paddle in this river system, the Mud Lake Road stretch is one of them. The average whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit easier to master in this state than those in other states, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that lots of rivers in this state are good for beginners. This is a pretty decent length section, it's good length for a morning trip. If you're coming from Stevens Point it's not a long drive at all to the starting location, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that.
