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.
