Wisconsin whitewater, Pemebonwon - South Branch

Marinette county, Pembine to Kremlin Road section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II-III(IV)     2.6 miles
This is an awful river to go down. Rocks everywhere, really shallow, and loads of trees blocking the river so you'd have to portage many times. We ended up not going down. I don't advise this unless you like spiders. Says Krynn

The put-in location is a reasonable drive from Marinette, as you can see on the road map further down. The natural beauty of Marinette County and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water attract people from
    near and far. This is a bit of a short stretch so you'd better be prepared to walk your kayak back to put-in a few times. The campgrounds here at Pemebonwon - South Branch are pretty good. The rivers for whitewater rafting
and kayaking in this state are often easier than in other states, so if you're not from around here don't forget that many of the rivers in this state are not very demanding. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, 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 rivers. Great exercise and just being out on the river for a while are
