Wisconsin whitewater, Wolf River

Langlade county, Highway 52 to Wolf Road section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-II     3.2 miles
  This stretch of Wolf River is 3.2 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class I-II section. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in Wisconsin is often easier than elsewhere, so if you're not from around here don't forget that rivers in this state are not as hard as elsewhere. Getting some good exercise and just being out on the river for a while are great reasons to come. This is a pretty short section so you'll
    have to walk back to the start over and over. The starting location is a short drive from Merrill, 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 if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way this area has a large number of paddling spots. The nature scenery of Langlade County and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water are reasons enough to come here and paddle. This river system is full of great paddling stretches, the Highway 52 to Wolf Road stretch  
is just one of them.

Briefly about the general area:
Big Slough Gundy Rapids is always fun to check out, and the Popple Ridge Snowmobile Trail offers hiking at its best. A short journey to Little Slough Gundy Rapids is always worthwhile, and hiking is a popular thing to do around Wolf River; Eds Lake Trail System is a nice local trail. This river is so wonderful. There are plenty of folks from Pickerel here at Wolf River. During the days of summer at Wolf River temperatures are typically in the 70's while night lows are generally in the 50's. For the period of the winter the highs are regularly in the 10's, and all through the dark hours in the winter at Wolf River temperatures drop to the-10's.
