  Evergreen Rapids:
Latitude: 45.05283   Longitude: -88.65910
Access to Evergreen Rapids is a bit difficult.  The Wolf River divides around an island... the stream on one side becomes Sullivan Falls and the other side becomes Evergreen Rapids.  We are not kayakers, so we could not come down the Wolf River and get to the western side of the island... and the Sullivan Falls side of the river is a bit too deep to wade so we gave up on getting video of the rapids.  According to reports the rapids are classified as a class 2+ so it is a significant rapids.  See the description below on how to get to Sullivan Falls.

Links & Helpful Hints...
Before you visit a waterfall it is helpful to know the surrounding landscape... we use two free internet services to help.  www.topoquest.com provides free topo maps which can be enlarged and printed.  Access Topoquest and then click "find maps" on their website, put in GPS from our data (without the minus sign), click "search", then click on the first USGS map that has a DRG name, click on the map itself and select zoom level.  To navigate the area... if you want to look at an area left of the map, click on the left edge of the map, etc.  Below each map will be a listing of features shown on the map... a little work and you will learn their system (sometime clicking on the edge will not take you to an adjacent map).
---------------
We also use Google Earth.  It is a free service you can download at https://www.google.com/earth/.  Like Topoquest, you put in GPS data (or city, or county and state) and it will "fly" you to the location requested. 
---------------
There are lots of internet sites that list facts about Wisconsin... one of the best is the Wisconsin DNR site http://dnr.wi.gov/ which has all kinds of info.  Another good site is www.discoverwisconsin.com.
