Report Type: Weekend Trip Report
Trip Dates: May 17-18, 2007

Difficulty: Moderate/Difficult

Description:

Unfortunatly water levels were low. We base-camped at Big Falls. First Day run was from Keenen(uninmproved launch)on county (I). Mix of flatwater then mixing into rockgardens. Took out at campsite which was nice.

2nd Day run from the campground to Jump River Bridge basically the same but longer with scenery. Scouted Big Falls but just had nowhere to make it through the Falls.

This river, at the right levels, looks to be a hidden Gem. It was Difficult in low water, but could be definitely challenging in the right flow.

Free Camping first come first serve. Free firewood

Tandem canoes: Dagger Legend 16 and Old Town Discover 16.9

Directions:

Jump River Wisconsin, Big Falls County Park.
