How many miles can we expect to cover? Where should we put in and take out at?

We give the general rule that our customers will cover about 3 miles per hour while on the river (not relaxing on a sand bar…that’s ZERO miles per hour).  To help decide how far to paddle and what put in and take out to use you should calculate how many hours you’d like to paddle over the entire number of days you’re paddling and multiply by 3 MPH.  So if you’re looking to put in 8 hours of paddling over 2 days, multiply 8 hrs x 3 MPH = 24 miles.  We can then make suggestions of what trip would best suit your needs.

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.
