River Description

A fine central Wisconsin float, with some small sandstone cliff banks and ledgy sandstone bottom. The main attraction is a 5 or 6 foot ledge called Polly Falls. Some years back, at high water, a drowning occurred here (primarily due to some basic mistakes in judgment, equipment and techniques) so use good judgment as levels increase! 

When this is runnable, groups often look at a double or triple, combining it with runs on Morrison Creek and/or Halls (Stockwell) Creek.

The following YouTube video (from 'MnktoDave') offers a great tour of Robinson Creek, nearby Hall's Creek (from about 1:08), and (from 2:46 til the end of the video) surfing the "Campground Wave" on the Black River at Hatfield: https://youtu.be/LFf1pr8qu4g
