Pissmire Falls

Pissmire Falls - Downstream view from bridge

Another very easy & quick waterfall/rapids is Pissmire Falls located in the northern part of Menominee County, Wisconsin.  For these you can basically drive up & park on the shoulder and view from the bridge across the Wolf River.  Here’s the upstream view: Downstream view shown here.  Unfortunately I can’t access any further because this … Read more Pissmire Falls

Shotgun Eddy Rapids

Shotgun Eddy Rapids

Quick stopover at Shotgun Eddy Rapids.  This was included on my list as a waterfall of sorts (and it is relatively large/long) but it’s not much to see.  Can be accessed via the Shotgun Eddy rafting rental & campground.  I may return for the rafting/tubing experience but it wasn’t in the cards for this trip.  … Read more Shotgun Eddy Rapids

Ducknest Rapids

Ducknest Rapids

Just downstream from Sullivan Falls is yet another set of substantial feature named Ducknest Rapids.  Only have one photo to share – be sure to watch the video below, much easier to show everything with the wide-angle GoPro lens. Note: Apparently there is a waterfall called Ducknest Falls just upstream from the rapids, however I … Read more Ducknest Rapids

Sullivan Falls

Sullivan Falls

Continuing upstream along the Wolf River my next stop is at Sullivan Falls, an easily accessible waterfall and well worth the short walk.  Couldn’t photograph the falls from many different angles but it’s fairly large so don’t miss it. Also looks like a popular put-in spot for a group of rafters.  Looks like fun, lots … Read more Sullivan Falls

Wolf River Dalles & Tea Kettle Rapids

Wolf River Dalles

Menominee County is chock full of amazing natural beauty along the Wolf River.  Next spot is a 2-for-1 starting at Tea Kettle Rapids which is more of a small shelf waterfall but called rapids by name. Just a few hundred yards downstream is also Wolf River Dalles.  This is the best photo I could get … Read more Wolf River Dalles & Tea Kettle Rapids

Big Smokey Falls

Big Smokey Falls - Downstream view above the first falls

From Big Eddy Falls it only takes a short & scenic drive north on WIS 55 to reach Big Smokey Falls.  The area is open to the public but I’ve heard they sometimes charge a $5 fee during the peak summer months.  Views upstream on the Wolf River are quite serene by contrast. A large … Read more Big Smokey Falls

Big Eddy Falls

Big Eddy Falls

Plenty of falls & rapids to see along the Wolf River in Menominee County.  Next stop was Big Eddy Falls which is a short drive up WIS 55 through some amazing forests. From what I can find this is the only public access – other surrounding lands are private or only accessible by members of … Read more Big Eddy Falls

Keshena Falls

Keshena Falls - Main falls view

My journey today is now carrying me into Menominee County through the Menominee Indian (Native American) reservation.  Next destination is Keshena Falls, an amazing waterfall & rapids on the Wolf River. A small bridge allows the road to cross the largest rapids.  The river gets very wide in this spot and splits around a central … Read more Keshena Falls
