Our experienced staff will outfit you, your family and friends with all the equipment required for a successful outing on the Wisconsin River.

A trip on the Wisconsin River offers breathtaking views of wooded bluffs, the winding river, sandbars, 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 and have four buses for prompt drop-off and pickup service at numerous locations up and down the Lower Wisconsin. 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.
