Do you have a sample itinerary I can look at?

2 Day Trip Muscoda to Boscobel, 6 hour total paddle

Additional distances of 23, 29, 35, 47 and 60 mile trips available.

There’s a campground in the town of Muscoda if you decide to arrive the night before and camp at the campground.

Day 1

  • Drop off people and gear at the put-in for the start of your trip.

  • Drivers continue down river to our shop in Boscobel

  • We’ll check your group in, sell you firewood and rental dry bags

  • We’ll then take the canoes and your drivers up river to the put in, if you can get to our shop at 9 AM you’ll be on our first vehicle up river.

  • Most Troops will put an hour between them and the boat landing before stopping for lunch and a swim.

  • Most groups will then paddle between 60-90 minutes between stops.  Visit our Maps page for segment maps of the river.

  • Keep in mind that the last 5 or so miles before the Boscobel boat landing does not have suitable camping sites due to sand bar size and the road that parallels the river for the last 2.5 miles.

  •  

Day 2

  • Roust and have breakfast.

  • Most groups are on the water by 9:30 AM and can generally hit the Boscobel boat landing before noon.

2 Day Trip Sauk City to Spring Green, 8 hour total paddle

There is a campground across the street from our shop, Snuffy’s Campground if you’d like to come up the night before your trip starts.

Day 1

  • Arrive at our shop, we open at 9 AM.

  • Check in with the office

  • Set up your pickup time for the end of your trip

  • Load canoes and hit the water

  • Lunch around noon on a sand bar

  • You’ll most likely do 60-90 minute stints of paddling, longer if the wind is blowing in order to cover ground

  • Set up camp for the night, on July and August weekends, the sooner the better on this stretch of river

NO GLASS, STYROFOAM or FIREWORKS on the River

It is illegal to be in possession of glass on the Wisconsin River. Assume you WILL be searched by the WI Dept. of Natural Resources. If caught you will face a fine of upto $749 for the possession of glass (beer bottles, jelly jars, mayo jars, wine bottles).

Fireworks are also illegal and punishable by fines. We are trying to provide a peaceful experience for our paddlers and the many migratory birds that we share the river with. Leave your glass and fireworks at home and save yourself the fine for being in possession of them on the river.
