Outfitters in and around Somerset provide rentals and transportation for this popular tubing river. While the upper portions are considered too rocky for navigation, canoeing is popular on the central stretch through Jackson and Clark counties. A boundary river between Wisconsin and Michigan with long stretches of slow water and low hazard rapids. Rich in history and scenic beauty, the river is navigable for most of its length to its mouth on the Mississippi.
The Wisconsin River flows 430 miles across the state from Lac Vieux Desert in northern Wisconsin to its junction with the Mississippi River ar Wyalusing State Park in southwestern Wisconsin. Although it has a steady current and wild appearance, the lower Wolf lacks the rough water characteristics of its upper stretches.
Known for camping and fishing, the Namekagon provides lake and river paddling with some low hazard rapids.
The Pecatonica River and the west branch of the Pecatonica both offer a mild current and picturesque scenery including farmland, wood lots and marsh.
The upper portion flows through beautiful Nicolet National Forest and has some of the most difficult whitewater in the midwest. A state-designated wild river, the Pine courses through some of the most primitive areas in the Nicolet National Forest. A state designated wild river, the Popple is a river of contrasts as it flows through the Nicolet National Forest.
The Red Cedar runs approximately 85 miles from Lake Chetac to the Chippewa River below Menomonie. Meanders through massive wetlands and shallow lakes amidst the rich farmland and picturesque glacial terrain of Dodge, Jefferson and Rock Counties. Offers a medium to fast current including two difficult rapids on the lower stretches of the river. A relatively unknown and unspoiled river flowing 27 miles through Iron County lakes and wilderness into the Turtle-Flambeau Flowage at Lake of the Falls. The Headwaters of the Wisconsin River flows south from Lac Vieux Desert to Eagle River where it joins the Eagle River chain of lakes and eventually, 430 miles from its source, joins the Mississippi near Prairie du Chien. Quilt shop in Alma’s historic Burlington Hotel, circa 1891.  Newly restored, the shop is very fresh and quaint inside with a nice selection of fabrics and Mettler thread! Three majestic rivers and the beautiful bluffs surrounding them make La Crosse County the perfect outdoor recreation area. You can kayak, fish, or just cruise the Mississippi, and Hixon Forest is full of trails for hiking and biking. We'll explore the outskirts of Goose Island and Target Lake, stop at beaver lodges, lotus fields, and even active bald eagle nests. Our boats have an onboard restroom, comfortable seating, a weather-protected cabin, and a very friendly and professional crew!
It flows 100 miles from its headwaters near Hillsboro to its confluence with the Wisconsin River south of Portage.


From Hall's Creek Landing, 13.5 miles north of Black River Falls, the river flows through quiet forests to a landing above the dam at Black River Falls. Numerous streams flow into the river, and access is available at county and forest service roads.
The current is slow with large areas of lake and marsh paddling above Lake Butte des Morts.
Flowing from Presque Isle in Vilas County, through Boulder Junction and Manitowish Waters, to the Turtle-Flambeau Flowage in Iron County. Maps to the Long Lake Canoe Trail near Trempealau and the Goose Island Canoe Trail near La Crosse are available by calling the La Crosse District headquarters at 608-783-8405. The river above Caldron Falls Reservoir (Hwy C) has long and difficult rapids that require a high degree of skill.
Spring and early summer are the best times to plunge in as water levels drop significantly in the summer.
The upper river meanders through farmland while the lower stretch flows through a wildlife area to its mouth on the Wisconsin River. The upper 20 miles are relatively shallow and wide with a brisk current and lots of islands -- an ideal float trip for novices and families. The Wisconsin drains a third of the state and is interrupted 26 times by hydroelectric dams, the last of which is at Prairie du Sac.
The stretch below Lily is recommended for experienced paddlers and is also popular for whitewater rafting. Access is available on either Lake Mendoata or Lake Monona, and along the river are road crossings.
Work on your short game at any of our six area golf courses, or visit in winter for some of the region’s best downhill and cross-country skiing. Jump onboard the Mississippi Explorer riverboat and explore scenic backwater wetland areas away from the busy main-channel of the river. The last half features a wild rapids area with a walkway on the side for the less adventurous. Upper portions narrow with steady current through pine forests; lower stretch passes through Powell Marsh narrowing again before joining the Manitowish River as it enters the Turtle-Flambeau Flowage. Below the dam, put in at the landing on First Street and enjoy a gorgeous 30-mile ride to New Amsterdam.
Below Brule River Dam and at the junction where the Michigamme joins the Brule to become the Menominee, the rapid increase in current combined with huge waves can potentially swamp an open craft. Its upper reaches are slower and easier to paddle; the southern sections provide the challenge of rapids and whitewater. The southern 92 miles of the river are attractive for family outings as there are no dams to portage.
In the New London area, beginners can rent fiberglass canoes and tubes for family fun on both the Wolf and Little Wolf rivers.
Several dams must be portaged, During low water, travel can be difficult due to exposed boulders and bars. The river then flows through both Lakes Sinissippi and Koshkonong on its way to the Mississippi River. Two dams must be portaged on the upper river; the Albany Dam has a stairway, while the Decatur Dam can be by-passed to Broadhead by using the mill race waterway.
Much of the Upper Wisconsin involves flowage paddling, particularly between Wausau and Castle Rock Lake.


For family fun, rent a canoe from area outfitters and enyoy a meandering ride down the Crystal River. If spectating is more your style, the La Crosse area is home to three semi-professional teams: the La Crosse Loggers of the Northwoods Baseball League, the River City Rough Riders of the Northern Elite Football League, and the Coulee Region Chill of the North American Hockey League, not to mention plenty of NCAA action at UW-La Crosse and Viterbo University. The current is relaxing, but be prepared to make difficult portages around several dams and some dangerous log jams. The official canoe landing in Sparta is located across from Fisherman's Park and a county landing is located east of Rockland at Sixth Drive.
A trip down the lower Wolf can be continued through Lakes Poygan and Butte des Morts to Lake Winnebago.
With numerous access points and boat landings, and more than fifty campsites, paddlers can design trips of any length.
Portions of the upper river are extremely dangerous and should only be run by experts in decked boats. Because of difficult whitewater and obstacles, this section should not be attempted by a novice. Access points at many road crossings and in Horicon, Watertown, Fort Atkinson, Janesville, and Beloit.
The Pigeon, Mullet and Onion Rivers (all tributaries of the Sheboygan) can be paddled at high water. The river supports abundant wildlife as it winds through forested shores, marshes and productive farmlands.
Access is available at road crossings with possible take-out near Markton and Hwy M before entering the Menominee Indian Reservation.
Nine Mile Creek is near Hwy 70 where the North Fork flows into the Flambeau River State Forest.
Further west, the thirteen miles from the West Salem Dam to Riverside Park in La Crosse travels through tall pine stands, small rapids and the La Crosse River Marsh. Downstream the lower portion is steady current flowing through beautiful north country into the flowage.
In the city, the adventurous may canoe or kayak from below North Avenue to the mouth of the harbor, but access points are few for small craft (none from the new Riverwalk system).
The current is relaxing, but be prepared to portage several dams and an occasional fallen tree. The lower river from the Highway 11 bridge to the state line is navigable, but be prepared to portage fallen trees. For more information, contact the Wisconsin DNR Service Center in Rhinelander at 715-365-8900. Note: A section below the Hwy 2 bridge contains dangerous rapids which no party should attempt unless accompanied by a knowledgeable guide.
The Upper Flambeau above Nine Mile Creek and the stretch below Ladysmith to its junction with the Chippewa are also canoeable.
