We’ve provided these suggested packing lists in order to help you plan for your trip. We are not saying these lists are complete and that they will work for everyone. We will say, as you’ve heard in our packing video and you’ll see on these .pdfs, your objective should be to see how little you can get away with bringing on your trip, not how much you can get into the canoe.
We hope these lists are helpful in planning your trip.
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.
