Canoe, Tube & Kayak Rentals

Enjoy a leisurely day canoeing, tubing or kayaking down the Beautiful Wisconsin River!
Inquire about sandbars for overnight camping trips on the river.

Planning your Trip:

Paddling with the current will move you at about 3 miles per hour.  Floating and stopping on sandbars should be considered when planning a river trip. The canoes, tubes or kayaks that you rent are yours for the day if you go up river. You have until dusk to return back to Wisconsin Riverside Resort.
