For our anniversary, my wife and I booked the Ropes Tower and Peshtigo Rafting experiences. We both came away impressed with the experience.

The staff in the office and the guides on the adventures were extremely affable and knowledgeable. Sarah and Calvin in the office made check-in and reservation a thoughtless, smooth affair and as a bonus they were fantastic conversation while waiting for the activities to start. Morgan on the ropes course was fantastic. She gave insightful suggestions to maximize each climb, took pictures of us while we were climbing/belaying, and made even the mundane safety talk both engaging and entertaining. Franklin, Matt, Cristy and Ben were the ideal guides for the river trip. The orientation talk was informative yet funny, and they took great care to ensure that each person on the river enjoyed it to the maximum. Whether it was Franklin pointing out the best path through the rocks, Matt brainstorming creative ways to re-run rapids, or Cristy and Ben making sure everyone in the back of the group knew what to do, the guides made an already memorable experience truly unforgettable.

My wife and I are already planning which activities we're going to do next year, and looking for excuses to bring friends and family back up later this summer.

Our family did 4 of the adventures with Wildman and all were excellent fun. Our kids are 13 and 11 and they loved this vacation. We did the Alpine Tower ropes course, including the big swing, paintball, white water rafting on the Menominee, and the zip-line. The guides were excellent. They knew what they were doing, kept us safe, and allowed us to have a blast while doing some things we had never done before. On trips like this the guides can make or break the trip. The guys at Wildman were awesome! We never met a single staff person that wasn't friendly or helpful. Really great bunch of folks. I highly recommend Wildman Adventures.

We went to the Peshtigo Resort in Athelstane to try our hand at white water rafting. We didn't stay at the resort. The water was up so it was a fantastic trip. I would suggesting going when the water is high, the Peshtigo river is very rock and you can get stuck very easily. After a while it sort of takes the fun out of it. Anyways, the guides were really nice and helpful. One went ahead, one stayed in back and one guide was in the middle so we didn't feel too vulnerable. The only time I felt vulnerable was when I faced the class 3 rapids, which is exactly what we paid for. Very professional and fun!

Took a group of college students here 10/11 for their Fall Break retreat and a great time was had by all, including a few who were afraid of water! They overcame their fears and it was such a great teambuilding experience. Even in 40 degree weather, everyone was having too much fun to think too long about the cold. Great experience, would definitely go back.

You can't beat Wildman for thrilling white water rafting in WI. Great rides through great water. And bubbled up by a staff of experienced pros who not only know what they are doing...they prepare you for what you need to know for the fun and excitement. Alita, Cheryl, and the gang are terrific. And the Bomber's cafe and saloon right there is the place to toast your accomplishment and brag about not being scared of white water. The place, not necessarily for the truth. Slainte!

Room Tip: I don't don't know what the rooms are like. If they are half as good as the white water, you...

My husband and I took the Class IV Menominee trip - we're both in our late 40s and it was a BLAST despite the 58 degree downpour we were paddling in. We'd do it again in a heartbeat and hope to take our grown kids back with us next time. Joey our guide and Rebecca the manager - you guys ROCK! We had sooo much fun! THANKS!!!!!!!!!
