Peshtigo Flowage Weekend

JUNE 20-21: Two days exploring the High Falls and flowages

This has become an annual getaway weekend of paddling, camping and a big potluck barbecue. No, this isn’t a whitewater trip. The flowage is where the raging “Pesh” is tamed into a flat pond surrounded by rocky beauty. Saturday we leave from Landing #13 and head to Landing #12, where the river enters the impoundment. After a stop for lunch, we head back to Landing #13 and the Tommy Thomspon State Park campground to prepare for our cookout at the Woods Lake picnic shelter. SUNDAY, we’re changing it up from previous years, launching from Landing #XX and paddling out and back to XXXX.

MEET: After 9AM
LAUNCH: Landing #13
LUNCH: Landing #12 
LAND: Back at #13.
CHALLENGES: Putting up with some of your fellow paddlers or being overcome by the natural beauty.



  1. All participants must wear a personal flotation device (PFD or lifejacket) at all times while on the water.
  2. No alcoholic beverages are allowed on the paddle or during lunch stops.
Members of NEWP can arrange to borrow a boat by contacting a mwmber of the Board. Several boat rental businesses operate in the region.
