Governor Earl Peshtigo River State Forest is a long, linear state forest in northeast Wisconsin bordering some of the most beautiful and exciting sections of the Peshtigo River. Anglers know the river's free-flowing portion for its excellent fly-fishing; paddlers brave the Midwest's longest continuous whitewater rapids; and boaters can access more than 3,000 acres of flowage from 15 boat landings. The forest offers a family campground and several remote boat-in campsites along the river.
