The information will be expanded on as soon as I develop those pages and as we develop the supporting documents like registration.

We continue to thank our sponsors: Wausau Insurance (presenting sponsor), Wausau Papers, Wausau Daily Herald, Wisconsin Public Service, MetLife, Community Foundation of North Central Wisconsin, Greenheck Fan Corporation, Siemens, Noodles, and CIty of Wausau as well as the numerous other supporting companies we highlight on the website. Without the corporate and community support, Wausau Whitewater cannot provide this exceptional schedule of whitewater activities.

If you’ve never been to Wausau, come see us this summer!



  1. Hi!
    If you could, it would be a good idea to update the

    I think Rob might be involved with them.

  2. Good Idea, Doug! I’ve wondered about that for a long time. I guess it is time to take action. I will check with Rob!
