Why Wildman Adventure Resort?
Wildman Adventure Resort is one of the very best places for a Scout Troop or Venture Crew. We offer tons of outdoor experiences that allow members to work as a team, learn trust, conquer fears, and forge bonds that will last a lifetime — all while experiencing the best of nature.
Troops will be able to camp in the forest along the Peshtigo River, where they’ll have access to hiking, fishing, and more. If sleeping in the great outdoors is not fit for your troop, we also have large cabins to accommodate troops as well.
They’ll enjoy a sand volleyball court, horseshoes, a pavilion for snacks and meals, and a fireplace for roasting marshmallows at the end of the night.
Our resort is unique because of its family-friendly atmosphere that welcomes troops, families, couples, and everything in between.
Our guides love to take care of Scout Troops
Our guides are some of the best around. They’re so good in fact, that year after year, Scouts return to the Northwoods of Wisconsin in hopes of finding the same guide they had the year before.
What makes them so good? They are most interested in teaching Scouts about the beautiful nature surrounding them while engaging them in unforgettable, character-building activities with their troop or crew.
They are concerned with the safety and well-being of every Scout they lead, and they form a bond with troops that will last a lifetime.
They’re not just leaders — by the end of the adventure, they’re friends.
What kind of adventures are available for troops and crews?
The short answer? Adventures you’ll never forget.
At Wildman Adventure Resort, we provide adventures that create memories that last forever, while teaching Scouts how to respect and navigate through the nature of Wisconsin.
To let you in on a secret — whitewater rafting is definitely our most popular attraction. You’d be hard-pressed to find better whitewater rafting than what is offered in Northeastern Wisconsin.
That being said, whitewater rafting is far from being the only adventure we offer. Take a look below to read about more options available for scout adventures.
Alpine Tower High Ropes Course
Whether you want to challenge your friends or your troop leader, the 60 foot, Alpine Tower High Ropes Course offers you the chance to practice your problem-solving skills while navigating the ropes course from the sky.
This is a great team event since it teaches Scouts how to support, communicate, and cheer on their teammates while learning the basics of belaying and knot tying.
Kayak Lake Tour
What’s better than a relaxing paddle through the Northwoods by kayak?
Troop members will float through the High Falls flowage together, as they spot a variety of wildlife, including bald eagles, turkey vultures, black bears, coyotes, and even river otters!
They’ll be able to experience the great outdoors together, and maybe even challenge each other to take a plunge off a cliff at the end of the paddle!
Whitewater Rafting on the Menominee or Peshtigo Rivers
Experience the biggest whitewater rafting in all of the Midwest right here in Wisconsin! Choose to be in a group raft on the Menominee River or conquer the Peshtigo in your own inflatable kayak. Your scouts can experience rapids from Class II-IV.
Play games in the water, defeat the rapids, and build a team bond along the way!
Test your balance on the standup paddleboarding tour!
Scouts will learn a new skill as they learn to balance on the paddleboard and navigate through the calm waters of the lakes.
Groups won’t have to worry about boats passing by, but will be able to enjoy the serene views ahead of them and see wildlife like loons, eagles, deer, and black bear.
Menominee River Zip Line Tour
For a group that loves adrenaline, the zip line tour is perfect!
Scouts will fly platform to platform over 1,900 feet long, along the Menominee River and experience the wind in their hair as trees go whizzing by!
Rock climbing and Rappelling
The Iron Mountain area provides the perfect place for troops to practice conquering fears together.
Rock climbing is the perfect way to learn how to trust others, conquer fears, and cheer on your troop members. The view from the top is unbelievable!

"Best part of the summer!"
“Wildman Adventure Resort is the best outdoor adventure resort we have worked with. We have planned several Boy Scout adventure trips over the last 6-8 years and Wildman is the best to work with. From the first call to find out what they offer to the weeks and days before our trip, they made sure everything was ready for us.
The Adventures were amazing! The rafting on the Menominee and the Peshtigo Rivers were a rush, and the Paintball and Alpine Towers were so much fun!
The staff- Dan, Steph, Marcus, Maddox, Angelo, Rosso, James, and all of the names I am forgetting- you guys ROCK! Your enthusiasm made our week phenomenal!
And Marcus – the Piggly Wiggly donuts were the Bomb!
We had a amazing time, and our scouts said the trip was the best part of their summer!”
"Boy Scout Adventure"
“The boys camped at Wildman on beautiful campsite along the river and then went ziplining and rafting on the Menomonee River. The kids and adults all had a great time and have plans to go back next year. The guides were great with the kids. Wildman was easy to work with and very helpful throughout the organization process. Highly recommend!”
The guided trips here at Wildman are a great way to be introduced to the many adventure opportunities available here in the Midwest. We are here to help you plan a great trip that will suit your interests and experience level. Let us know how we can help!
