Wisconsin whitewater, Robinson Creek

Jackson county, Kelly Road to W Pine Hill Road section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-II(III)     4.9 miles
When there is enough water to paddle this river, the River Touring Section of the Sierra Club takes a trip down it and cleans up garbage from the spring melt.  Check out their website for details. Says Jeanna

Nice place. Peaceful and relaxing.

Although this route is a beautiful paddle, it is no longer regularly maintained by the Sierra Club, the local property owners or a paddling club. For this reason, unless you are prepared
    to drag you boat over or around substantial log jams with strong undertows, take out is recommended at Fall-Hall Road. If you'd like to see the F-H Glen, it is a 200yard paddle downstream around a bend to the glen. Secure
permission to use the F-H Camp trails if you don't want to drag you boat back upstream. If you want to paddle Robinson Creek, a better put in is at the Old County Road I on the North side where there is a State Forest campsite near the ATV trails (permit req'd to camp)on the north side of the bridge. Along the way are several class I (II) riffles and a millpond dam with designated portage on the right. At Kelly Road, Portage to the right of the  
dam to avoid a sharp drop on the downstream side of the bridge. The rest of the trip includes some class II (III) runs with several unmarked falls of 4-7' which should be portaged. There were a couple of places to play in and, if waterflow was above average, runs that would challenge an intermediate paddler. My 13 yo son and I paddled and dragged our way to the Black River. After over a dozen log jams in the last two miles (and 2 hours) of creek, we camped on a sandbar 1/4 mile upstream of the Robinson Creek inlet. Total time 8 hours. Says Bob Plewa (see picture)

The put-in location is a short drive from La Crosse, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you won’t get lost.
