Class II-III Wisconsin River, WI

Grandfather Falls (Grandfather Dam to Powerhouse)

Between the Grandfather Dam and the powerhouse lies a full mile of big, wide river with an amazing jumble of rocks and a few good ledges. With adequate water, this is a wild stretch of river which should allow many options of routes and plenty of play possibilities. (American Whitewater)
