Rafting the Kickapoo

Jump to last reply

I am looking at a raft trip on the Kickapoo from Ontario Wisconsin through the Wildcat Mountain State Park.
This sounds like what I am looking for- calm water, forested banks, able to stop for a break here and there, and about 2-3 hrs in length.
Has anyone done this portion of the river and can give me any guidelines?
Any suggestions as to the outfitter to use? It looks like there are only three. Kickapoo River and Canoe says since they are further up the river you get more time on the river. That is not necessarily what I want, but if they are the best I'll consider it.
Mr Duckies doesn't get good reviews. So that leaves me Drifty's. Are they good?
And which bridge do I want to stop at in order to not spend all day and still have the best portions? I'm looking at either Bridge 5 or 7. But 5 would be better time wise if I don't miss anything great between it and 7.

Any help would be appreciated...And yes, I'll be back to thank you and get follow up questions answered if needed.
