“Best rafting & camping packages around this part of northern Wisconsin.”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

We have gone to Kosir's many times, and have never been disappointed. For rafting on the Peshtigo, we have had different experiences each time, with the ever changing river levels. Every time had been a fun adventure, & the guides really reassure you that you will be fine, even if it's your first time rafting. The camp grounds are kept pretty clean,there are clean showers & bathrooms, outhouses farther into the camp grounds, nice fire pits, and a bar on site! They rent out cabins, but we have only camped there. We make an annual trip there every year, wouldn't miss it at all!

“Kosir's Rafting on the Menominee River”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

4 of us just had a trip of a lifetime yesterday at Kosir's Rafting on the Menominee River in Niagra, WI. Used a Groupon coupon to try this activity and will definitely be back with a larger crowd! The staff was laid back yet serious about the complexity and dangers of such a large volume river. After posting photos of the trip (CD available of our group after our adventure) on facebook, my comments have been flooded. We only live 2 hours away and I think many of us were surprised at the spectacular sites that are so close to home.

“AWESOME RAFTING! Great campground!”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

Nothing to dislike about this place! We have been there now more than 5 times, and have never been disappointed!

The staff is always aiming to please, from the front check in, to the late night staff that has to make sure we're all quiet past 11pm, and for the hours some of them work (Paula!) they still have a smile on their faces! The campground is always groomed nice, it's not heavily wooded, but enough trees to give you privacy from the other campsites and some shade. The bathrooms are a short walk from wherever you're campsite is, and clean showers.
The rafting, no matter when you go, the guides are awesome! They go thru a complete run through of what you need to do in just about any situation when you're on the river, there are plenty of them that go on the river so you shouldn't feel apprehensive about rafting! Even when I have felt nervous, I am reassured someone's "got my back"! They have someone taking pictures on shore at the first drop, and you can purchase your pictures when you return back.
"Chicago" I think is the main guide that does the orientation and knows the river, and you can totally trust him!

We have only done the Peshtigo river run, we have had different water levels each time, so we have done the single "funyaks", a two person raft and we did a large group (8 per raft), and each and everytime, the river has been awesome!

Every time we're done, we all say "can't wait until next year"! It's usually a group of twelve or more that make the annual trip to Kosirs!
