Menominee River Whitewater Rafting

What to expect
  • Experience the best whitewater excitement in the Midwest!
  • Be accompanied by a guide through the thrilling whitewater of Piers Gorge.
  • See some of the largest volume rapids in the Midwest, with characteristics similar to those found on the Colorado River
The river trip begins along the gorgeous 200-foot cliffs bordering Michigan and Wisconsin. After a scenic flat water section and a few smaller rapids, you will pull over to scout the famous rapids of Piers Gorge. The adrenaline will start pumping as you scout the rapids and plan your approach. You'll go back to your boat with your guide for your first of two runs through Piers Gorge. After you shoot the rapids, you'll take a short hike back to the top of Piers Gorge and run the rapids again. This trip is appropriate for all skill levels, so bring the whole family.

Due to the size of these class IV rapids, the big water, 8-10 person rafts, run with a guide in every boat. Menominee River trips are based at the Menominee River Outpost, a relaxing, scenic drive from the Peshtigo River Outpost.

Note: Children under 12 must portage the class IV section of the river through Piers Gorge. A parent or guardian must accompany children during the portage they can enjoy the entertainment as they observe the others in their group running this amazing section of whitewater. Since you go through twice, parents can take turns so that everyone gets a chance to paddle the big water. Not recommended for pregnant women
