Kosir’s Rapid Rafts

Celebrating Over 40 Years of Whitewater Rafting Adventures!

Wisconsin’s Original Whitewater Rafting

Kosir’s Rapid Rafts was Wisconsin’s first professional whitewater rafting outfitter with operations on both the “Roaring Rapids” section of the Peshtigo River and the mighty “Piers Gorge” section of the Menominee River. These are the most exciting and challenging whitewater rafting trips in Northern Wisconsin. We are the only Midwest Peshtigo River outfitter based on the river’s edge at the end of the famous “Roaring Rapids” section of the Peshtigo River. Our convenient and private landing is located at our company headquarters and campground We have a prime location on the shore of the Peshtigo River at the end of the “Roaring Rapids” section of the Peshtigo River. This section is one of the longest stretches of continuous whitewater in the Midwest.

Fun and Friendly Staff

Here at Kosir’s Rapid Rafts we have a fun and friendly staff to make your rafting experience one of a kind. Our staff is knowledgeable about rafting, safety, kayaking, tubing, and also about the surrounding areas and rivers.


Tubing Peshtigo River

For those warm weather, low water Peshtigo days, Kosir’s Rapid Rafts offers tubing on the Peshtigo River below the whitewater stretch. The trip starts at our normal takeout at the Bridge and goes for about 45 minutes down the river to the first boat landing.


Kayaking Peshtigo River

Kosir’s Rapid Rafts now have sit-on-top, flat water kayaks available for rent. We start at boat landing where the tubing trips take out and paddle two miles down the Peshtigo River and onto Caldron Falls Flowage to the next boat landing and back.

Beautiful, Relaxing Environment

These areas of Northeast Wisconsin are a must see! The beautiful scenery, woods and waters will give you a feel of freedom and serenity. Use Kosir's Rapid Rafts as a starting point for outdoor adventure. We are close to the Nicolet National Forest, the Peshtigo River State Forest and the Caldron Falls and High Falls Flowages.  Many recreational opportunities are available in the surrounding area.
