Please notify me if you are willing to help with trip planning, including planning a meal and/or leading a hiking group or safety boating. 

Hooferland is a primitive campsite owned by the Hoofer Outing Club, near the Peshtigo River. 

 

Overview: 

No prior experience necessary. No prerequisites needed. 

All camping together! We will provide gear and teach you how to camp! 

 

If I find a hiking leader, there will be a hiking activity group! 


I will lead a whitewater boating group! Those who are new to whitewater paddling with Hoofers will be rafting with a commercial rafting business. Participants who have prior experience with Hoofers and have attained the R2 rating may kayak or canoe.
