Purveyor of Quality Guided Trips and Canoe/Kayak Rentals

Located on the scenic and peaceful Wisconsin River in the Driftless Region of southwest Wisconsin is where you’ll find a canoe rental that welcomes “First Timers” as well as the experienced paddler. You’ll drive and paddle among the tree covered rolling hills and bluffs of one of the secret regions of the Midwest. We offer trips from a few hours to as many as 5-7 days.

WRO provides more trips on rivers in Southern Wisconsin than any other rental company.

With its tree lined shores, sandy bottom, shallow depth and hundreds of sand bars to camp/fish/swim from, the Wisconsin River is a virtual paradise in the heart of the Midwest.

Wisconsin River Outings has been providing canoe and kayak rentals on the Wisconsin River for 10 years now and now we’ve expanded to these day trip friendly rivers: the upper reaches of the Kickapoo River from Rockton to La Farge and the Lower Kickapoo River from Gays Mills to the Wisconsin River.

Our Locations on the Unique and Scenic Wisconsin River

Sand Bar Camping on the Wisconsin River

At WRO we are paddlers also. We spend time on the river weekly and have paddled many of the lakes and rivers in Wisconsin while on guided trips and for pleasure.

Because we believe in the river we’re on and believe that paddling brings friends and families together we want to give you options for your paddle experience. Boscobel is the location of our headquarters, 90 miles west of Madison, WI. This quiet stretch of river is secluded and quite private. Sauk City is located 25 minutes north of Madison, WI and has several established canoe rentals that put quite a few boats on the water which can make for a more Spring Break atmosphere, though this is a popular stretch.

Your Group Size

Be it a couple that need one canoe or a corporate outing of 551 people we’re here to make your paddle experience one to remember.
