BRING YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS TO THE LOWER WISCONSIN RIVERWAY THIS SUMMER!
Our experienced staff will outfit you, your family and friends with all the equipment required for a successful outing on the Wisconsin River. Explore the water recreation opportunities of 90 miles of the Lower Wisconsin Riverway. A trip on the Wisconsin River offers breathtaking views of wooded bluffs, the winding river, sandbars and abundant wildlife–including bald eagles. Enjoy exhilarating canoe trips, fishing, camping, or just a relaxing float down the river with friends. We have canoes, tandem outfitted canoes, kayaks and tubes available for rental. There are four buses for prompt drop-off and pickup service at numerous locations up and down the Lower Wisconsin River. We have provisions available: kegs of beer, ice, firewood, fireworks, coolers, etc.
NO GLASS IS ALLOWED ON THE RIVER. Please be sure nobody in your group brings anything in glass. The DNR does enforce.
If you choose to use your own equipment, we charge the same price as our trip prices. Be sure to always bring life jackets. If you don’t have one, we can lend you some.
Drop-off and Pick-up Times
The latest drop-off time is 12:00 p.m. The latest pick-up time is 6:00 p.m. If you bring your own equipment and would like Trader’s to assist with drop-off or pick-up, please be sure to schedule ahead of time with Trader’s.
Life jacketsEvery person on board a personal watercraft must wear a life jacket. Sailboards and windsurfers are exempt from life jacket requirement but are highly encouraged to wear one. It’s a Wisconsin State Law.
