Get Adventurous on Green Bay Rivers

Posted on May 20th, 2014 in Wisconsin outdoors.

Green Bay RiversAside from its Packers, Green Bay is most notably known for its stunning waterfront location along the Bay of Green Bay, cradling Wisconsin’s famous Door Peninsula.  The region offers plenty of biking, hiking, and cross-country skiing along the Fox River trail and other state recreational trails.  There are also ample opportunities for fishing and boating, thanks in large part to Green Bays proximity to the Fox River, the Bay of Green Bay, and Lake Michigan.  However, there is even more outdoor adventure in store for those truly adventurous.  For many, spring in Wisconsin means prime white-water rafting or adventurous kayaking on the local Green Bay rivers.  Book your stay at the Astor House Bed and Breakfast today, and discover for yourself how thrilling Green Bay can be.

Green Bay Rivers

With the snows finally melting and the seasonal rains falling, Green Bay’s local rivers have become swollen, which means they are ready to offer a truly exhilarating experience for anyone craving a little adventure.  You’ll find one of the longest stretches of active whitewater in the Midwest along the Peshtigo River, beginning near Crandon and ending in Green Bay.  The segment named ‘Roaring Rapids’ (P5) is a four mile stretch of nearly continuous intermediate and advanced whitewater perfect for advanced paddlers.  There is also a beautiful quiet section of the river between Big Joe Landing and CCC Bridge (P1), where the river winds through a remote wilderness setting of dense northern lowland forest.  The Wolf River is one of the most popular whitewater rivers in Northeast Wisconsin.  Much of the lower river is primarily flatwater, but the rugged 37-mile upper-reach between Lily and Big Smokey Falls features a large number of rapids and is known for being wild and unpredictable.  Rafting trips along the Wolf River are available through local guides, such as ShotGun Eddy’s.
