o Can we have you plan and Guide the trip so all the troop has to do is show up with personnel gear? Yes. Our guided trips run $50 per person per day for Scouts (discounted from $75/person per day). So, a 3 day trip would be $150 per person and covers canoes, vests, paddles, 6 meals and guide.
o Can we have you plan the trip and have us show up with personnel gear and food? Yes, whether that’s with rentals or simply transport, we can give you help in planning out your trip. Scout rentals are $30/day plus a flat fee of $2/mile for transport (doing a 29 mile trip x $2 = $58, this covers the entire group, not per person).
o Can the troop do all the planning, use our equipment and only use you for shuttling between landings? Yes, we also do this. Because we have 2 locations and each handles this differently be sure you understand the proceedure to get you on the water as fast as possible. On the low end we charge $2/mile, on the high end we charge $2/mile for the first canoe plus $20 for each additional canoe. We can talk about this more when your plans firm up.

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.
