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