The Menominee River is a wide and high volume river that is popular with highly skilled whitewater paddlers. This stretch is appropriate for advanced and expert paddlers. The surroundings are beautiful and very scenic. Sand Portage Falls are Class III rapids and the first that you will encounter. This is a great surfing spot. After a wide flatwater stretch you will reach some riffles and Class I rapids leading into a 10-foot drop of Class IV Missicot Falls. The main chute is about 35 feet from the right shore with big waves at the bottom. Big waves are great for surfing on the left side of The Island. Next is the Twin Sisters (Class III) with difficult holes and counter-currents and some tame Class I rapids give a short break before the last drop, Terminal Surfer. There is a huge, tricky hole in the middle of a ledge that spans most of the river.
